"god loves you just the way you are, but he loves you too much to let you stay that way"
so john and i rented junebug
the other day and it was really kind of cute, and not in a vacuous way either. i have been wanting to see it ever since i saw the trailer, but i never got around to it. it just came out on video this week, so y'all should go rent it.
it is sort of like that reese witherspoon movie sweet home alabama
