Johnny Cash




Yes Vic and Kurt we saw the flick. I could not wait any longer and we dropped off Hannah and Luke at the youth event and we found ourselves at the cinema and how could we choose anything else....so go see it - I'd see it again in a hearbeat.

I wept. Does that surprise anyone that knows me? I thought the film was brilliant. I think that if you know of the later years of Johnny Cash and June Carter and their love and commitment to each other... you are able to see the beginning of their relationship differently. Does it do Johnny Cash justice? Well, I think there is more to be said.

The Man in Black was one of the Righteous ones. I believe that with my entire being. He was bold about his faith and love for Jesus Christ. I literally experience pain when I listen to him. Piercing of the heart pain. Daring me to get rid of the crap in my life and be bold in my faith pain. I miss him.

yes, he was so unflinching about it, and also so open about his failings.
Yet another light in the great cloud of witnesses who surround us.
I'm so thankful for him.

I've NEVER wept at a movie in my life, and I didn't during "Walk the Line," either. But, I almost did. At several points. A very moving film.

I also like it that Elvis offers Johnny some of his chilli fries. That's true friendship.
