If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Twilight - My Opinion

I've been reading some of your all's blogs and lately some of you have been talking about Twilight. And for sure, my girls have been talking about it. My oldest daughter has read all 4 of the books and my nephew is reading them. Seems that's all they've been talking about. So since some of you said you've been reading them and were going to go see the movie, I broke down and took my daughter's last Wednesday night. I was so tired that day and figured I'd probably fall asleep since the movie started at 9:40PM. What!?! 9:40pm. That's bedtime when you're my age (obviously not really since its almost 10:30 and I'm still up). How about it should be bedtime at my age.

Anyway, I digress. I took them and they loved it. They think Edward is gorgeous and that he is the most awesome thing out there. Well, guess what? I thought the movie was pretty good too. Now, I'm not much for vampires, but it was still good. In fact, it really was a nice love story. Now lookswise, Edward is not really my cup of tea because he's so pale and has really big eyebrows. But I must say, he was very polite and sweet and knew how to treat a girl.

So mom's if your teenagers want to see this, it's not too bad to watch (in my opinion anyway). It kept my attention (WooHoo, I didn't fall asleep) and the girls and I had a great time together.

I told my daughter not to loan her books out again right now, because I guess I'll be reading the books as soon as I finish the book I'm reading right now (Ted Dekker's "Blink") Who knew I'd be watching and reading about vampires? If you had told me this at the beginning of the year I would've thought you were silly!

I'd like to hear what some more of you all think about this movie or the books, if you've seen or read them?

  1. I like Ted Dekker's books. I just finished reading the second book in the Twilight series. The first two were good. A little slow to be honest. I guess after ALL I heard about them, I expected a work of historic literary proportions. It's worth the read. I'll read the other two...eventually.

  4. You know what I think. Maybe I'll read the book. Don't know. Don't really have the desire to. We'll see.

  6. hee hee hee

    How long did it take y'all to learn that routine??

    I haven't read the Twilight books but my girls LOVE THEM!

    I love Ted Dekker! I understand House is being made into a movie.
    Ted Dekker is the Christian alternative to Stephen King - he's got some scary stuff in his noggin !
