The new series of blogs will be called the “Life Lessons from the Wizard of Oz”
For those of you who have not seen the Wizard of Oz (are there any of you out there?) I found this plot summary for the movie online…
In this charming film based on the popular L.Frank Baum stories, Dorothy and her dog Toto are caught in a tornado’s path and somehow end up in the land of Oz. Here she meets some memorable friends and foes in her journey to meet the Wizard of Oz who everyone says can help her return home and possibly grant her new friends their goals of a brain, heart and courage. Written by Dale Roloff
What is it about this story that no matter how many times you have seen it,
no matter how old you are,
no matter if it has been decades since you have seen it,
you instantly go back in time (in your memories) to the first time you saw it.
It’s a classic, it’s timeless, and it is loaded with some amazing life lessons.
The Cowardly Lion – about having Courage (in storms)
The Tin Man – about our Heart (Love)
The Scarecrow – about our Brain (head/thinking)
Dorothy – about having Faith
The Wizard – about being who you really are (in Christ)
I am so looking forward to going on this journey with you…drop me a line and tell me what your favorite part of the movie, “The Wizard of Oz” is.
