The last several months have been rough for me. It started out with me getting the Covid vaccinations. To each their own. If you don’t want to get vaccinated, it is your choice. I felt the need to get them because back in 2016, I became deathly ill with the flu and I didn’t want to ever be that sick again, nor did I want to be responsible for making someone else that sick. Then on the heels of recovering from the vaccines, I fell hard on the ice and broke my left wrist in a few different places. On top of that our landlord decided he wanted to sell the house. So, in the midst of me not feeling well, we have been steadily packing.
I just needed to allow my body time to heal. Period! I thought my wrist was a six week injury. It turned out being a twelve week injury – mostly off the ice! So I couldn’t even do the one thing I needed to do for myself and that was to skate.
I was at least able to set up our FilmFreeway profile and submit the script to a few film festivals. Our profile on FilmFreeway is: https://filmfreeway.com/JULIANALOVE! I have been adding to it daily. It is pretty cool to see a lot of our project in one place, and how all the scattered pieces to this project have finally started to take shape. For a very long time, things seemed to be a jumbled mess. Then I would try to take one piece and put it where it didn’t belong. I usually would get frustrated as the result of something or someone not fitting right, and I had to start over again. Or I simply had to put that piece aside until it was ready to be used.
Today is July 1, 2021. It’s the 158th Anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg. I was out on the battlefields before the sun came up. As I was walking down Confederate Avenue to get to this cannon, something happened. Which on these battlefields is not unusual.
I stopped fast because all the sudden, I saw some of the scenes in the pilot. I could actually see and hear the scenes as they played out on Confederate Avenue. I guess Father God knew that I was in desperate need of cheering up! I felt like I had just walked into a time warp and the movie was playing out right before my very eyes. The production and finished film are so close that I can actually see, hear and feel it. It literally washed over me as I was standing there on Confederate Avenue.
So, I just have to keep doing what I am doing and as the Lord leads, I do that too. Our project is being fully funded and even more than that. We will HAVE everything we need and more, to make this two hour pilot. It will be distributed and be a huge success! What for so long has looked like a pile of mush, as previously stated, is starting to finally take the shape of an actual real full feature – long awaited motion picture…film! Can’t quit now and neither should you. Our projects and those who will see them, are ALL worth what we have had to go through – to see it through to, “The End!”
God Bless you!
Happy 4th of July
