Pops Symphony: Round Two

Last Sunday, I went to a Jazz Themed Symphony in the Park. This time, the theme was Star Wars. I actually am a newer Star Wars fan. I may be only 23, but I didn’t start watching the movies until 2015. I am not a big fan of action movies, but I love Star Wars. I love the Galaxy it takes place in with the crazy creatures, the droids, and love the Jedis. The action sequences are fun to watch with the lightsabers and when things blow up, it is funner to watch then than things blow up in a superhero movie. They actually played songs from The Phantom Menace all the way to The Force Awakens.

This Pops Symphony was fun. In my family’s group, it consisted of so many people. Friends of our friends came and there were about fifteen or eighteen people. One of the songs that was played was the Theme Song and the night ended with the ending credits of all the movies.

Next week’s theme will be Broadway and as a musical fanatic, I am quite looking forward to that week.

Are you are a Star Wars Fan? If So, why do you like the movies?

The Strength of Love

Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all thing…love never fails

-Unknown

At this time of year, we are celebrating a miracle, the birth of Christ. He was sent here for an important reason. Christ taught us that the biggest commandant is to love others. Love is the truest part of humanity. Love is a huge part of what makes us who we are. Love is the strongest force of all and will always win over hate. Christ wants us to love others while the devil tries to teach us hate. But love is greater than hate and violence. To make an impact on this world, we need to spread the love. I am fully aware that God loves us unconditionally and we are directed to love each other the same way. Christ died for us to save us from our sins and we look up to him as a role model. We all make mistakes, but remember the importance of love in our lives.

Hate just will not overcome love. We may all have our differences, but that is what makes us truly unique. We need to embrace each other and accept the differences we have. Society might look severely messed up, but it is not as messed up as it appears to be. It sounds as if humanity is completely lost, but in reality it is not. The vast majority of this world this still good. We still help those in need and support each. We need to listen to the Lord and not Satan in this time of year and for the rest of our lives.

Love in the midst of Darkness

Love rocks. Where there is love, there is no darkness

This is a lovely quote. One day at a school event, there was a station to make bookmarks. I picked a stamp and this quote was on that stamp. There is a lot of truth in that quote even though it doesn’t seem like that.

Love is the most powerful force of all. Even though there is always darkness, there is always less when there is love. Feeling love is important in life because it helps us thrive in dark times. Love makes us survive fearful and scary times in life. It still is hard to describe how there is no darkness when it comes to love. But I understand the importance of love. Everyone needs to feel love because we are social creatures and feel a need for intimacy. Love comes in many different forms and each one is so beautiful.

Love is even stronger than fear. God is love and he loves everyone unconditionally. We need to feel loved by God, our friends and family and others. If we feel unloved, than our lives could feel darker and even harder. That would makes us feel very alone.

Below is a blog post I wrote about the types of love in Les Mis. It is directly related to this post because Les Mis is covered with different kinds of love along with hope, compassion, and forgiveness.

What you think about the quote I talked about?
