After cell last night where we spent some quality time in prayer, I trotted back to my corridor to find some friends watching Love Actually. Now I'm not a big fan of girly romantic comedies but Love Actually I can cope with. I love the way the film looks at how love is viewed in society from nearly every angle. Whilst sitting there I realised I was wearing my black 'love' t-shirt shown above, which I thought was really appropriate. And when the girl in the film has to give up her relationship to look after her mentally ill brother, a debate started about whether that was a happy or a sad end to that story line. I don't know about happy or sad, but it did give a little chance to talk about sacrificial love.
Someone once asked me why my t-shirt just doesn't have a heart on it. The love the t-shirt talks about is so much more than just a luvvy-duvvy heart.
Which brings us to this morning, and I'm sitting here typing this cos my lecturer is away today so I've got a completely blank day. We've now got a week left and only 4 hours of lectures left. Which is silly, but I'm not complaining. Just got to think of something productive to do today though ... or go back to bed.
