And on the seventh day God finished his work that he had done, and he rested on the seventh day from all his work that he had done. So God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it God rested from all his work that he had done in creation. Genesis 2:2-3
You deserve the best. How about viewing some great award winning short films and documentaries as part of your weekend entertainment.
We are dealing with severe heat in the East, but I won’t complain because this past winter was sooo cold and bitter.
But while we are dealing with a heat wave, I will use Godly wisdom and keep cool and relax and checkout a few entertaining films and catch up on some of my favorite tv shows.
Since I am a big believer in sharing good things, here are just a few videos and short films I believe you might also find enjoyable to peek at over the weekend.
For the sake of some who find profanity to be off-limits, I have indicated a rating for each.
Have a great weekend and remember to keep God first and share the good news!
