Thoughts on Million Dollar Baby...

yes this is really going to be about Million Dollar Baby, not just the blurb that was in the last post.... this movie was very emotional, because it was so real, and i felt like I was there I was her....
some observations....
-He wasn't just her trainer, he was her savior, even to the point of freeing her into death.....

-She was me, she was you, she was us.... the normal everyday ppl with a dream. she fought hard, she gave her all, and in the end she got unfairly blindsided, and her dream was over just as quickly as it started... If we listen, and give our all, we too will live the lives we were intended to live, but it could always end with one harsh blow to the head when we aren't looking, we aren't promised anything more

-the priest was busy, to preoccupied with being holy and religious to see ppl. He believed what he wanted to believe. more times than not the church is to busy being holy to notice the ppl begging for answers right outside our doors.....

-her boxing name given to her by the trainer was beautiful, she truly was his darling. they became family to each other. she was his joy, his life, his accomplishment. We are the Darlings of Christ when we become all he knows we can be.

- his daughter was a mystery. she refused contact with him. maybe I missed it, but I don't remember hearing why this was. He tried to reach out to her, writing every day, but never with any response. Is this how God feels when he is trying to get our attention, but we are just too busy to hear or care what He is doing?
