Chasing the Wind

News. Faith. Nonsense.


I heartily recommend the new movie Bella that just opened. There was a special screening tonight at a local theater where we got a chance to speak to the lead actor, Eduardo Verastegui, who seems absolutely genuine about putting together movies that express positive messages. He told us that after giving his life to Christ, he realizes it’s not about him or the fame and fortune that goes with being a star. It’s about Him. He says he wants to make moves that he can take his mom and sisters to and not feel like he ought to hide their eyes during some scenes.

Bella is a movie like that. It shows the struggle of a young woman and the tough choices she faces when she finds out she’s pregnant, and the remorse of a young man whose life was shattered when he accidentally kills a young girl with his car. They have more in common than you think. A positive, pro-life movie.

The movie opened in limited release, so next weekend may be your last chance to see it before it goes to DVD.

About Me

Michael, a sinner saved by grace, sharing what the good Lord has shared with me.

Solomon, in the book of Ecclesiastes, said, “I have seen all the things that are done under the sun; all of them are meaningless, a chasing after the wind.”

If you’re not living for the glory of God, then what you’re doing is meaningless, no matter what it is. Living for God gives life meaning, and enjoying a “chasing after the wind” is a gift from God. I’m doing what I can to enjoy this gift daily.

Got questions? I’m not surprised. If you have any questions about Chasing the Wind, you can email me at
