Once upon a time, this week didn’t exist.

Maybe some of that can continue. (By the way, have you read some other perspective beyond your own? Here’s a great post by Shawn Harrison).

I’d love to offer two videos with some insightful commentary given recent thoughts.

Flashback #1: “What the (bleep)?”

Some have argued this week that a company gets to do what a company wants. So… what has A&E as a company attempted to do – not just this week, but in the past? Here is one that is intriguing, given that it was filmed in the spring that seems to reveal a piece of that.

Flashback #2: “Before the money…”

Check out this great interview with Jase and Missy regarding life before fame.

Maybe these videos mean nothing, or maybe they give context to everything.

I suppose that’s up to you…

and really…

that’s sort of a point in itself.

    I believe Phil hit it on the mark: “…it’s a big ship. You can’t turn it quick… Slow and steady…” And I also believe that he made another excellent observation in that they know who Hollywood is but Hollywood doesn’t have them figured out yet. It IS a battle, but it’s a slow one. And like he said we have to be patient but firm. Don’t back down. But we can’t get up in anyone’s face either. “Gentle as a dove and wise as a serpent.” Thank you for finding and posting these vids.

    Thanks for the tag, Tony!

    I do admire the faith of this family. They know what it means to trust in God, and what it means to stand with God. They offer great lessons many of us can clean as Christian parents / individuals.
