Most folks reading this blog did not go to the Oscars, or any of the after-parties the celebrities are famous for attending.
If you’re anything like me, you watched about half of it, then went to sleep, not knowing who won the big prizes, like best picture etc…
The hoopla and interviews, leading up to the awards, is what I usually see almost every year.
I’m not really sure why they always ask the women what dress designer they’re wearing.
My wife has never said to me, “oh I must have that woman’s number so I can spend $15,000 on my next dress.”
I did stay up to see that Toy Story III won the best animated picture.
It’s a heartwarming remake of Animal Farm, complete with a totalitarian, money-grubbing, murderous tyrant, much like the leaders in the Arab world today.
The bottom line is these actors and actresses, the directors and film makers, are all in need of something.
Sure it’s nice to have an Oscar on their mantle.
It’s probably fun, unless you love privacy, to be recognized wherever you go.
Win or lose, it’s Monday morning for everyone involved.
How they begin their day today is just as important as yesterday.
Death and judgement is an appointment we all have, but the date of it is known only by God Himself.
Each day we must dress ourselves as if this is the day we walk the red carpet to meet Him face to face.
The Word of God, our Faith in the Resurrection and our Love for one another, are the most valuable articles of clothing we could possibly wear.
In 1953 a movie starring Richard Burton, called The Robe, was nominated for best picture, but it did not win.
The Roman Soldiers were so impressed with the quality of Christ’s robe, they gambled over it.
We don’t have to gamble, we can put on Christ’s robe and wear it right now, just by accepting Him into our lives, turning over our fears and believing Him for victory in every scene of our life.
We have the far better deal than any Hollywood star without Him.
If you’re a an Oscar-ite, dragging yourself out of bed this Monday morning, you too have the right to wear the designer of the universe’s best creation.
It may not look fancy down here, but in the right Light, it will glisten for eternity.
