Busy but not busy enough …

So I’ve rather recently seen a film unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. It’s in black and white and all the actors are African Americans. The main character is a man named Little Joe and at the beginning (which I didn’t see very much of) he dies. First, Hell’s minions appear and try to get him to come with them. Then Heven’s angels appear and they have a bit of an argument. The man’s wife, Petunia, prays and prays as hard as she can for her husband – which sways how the arguments turns. Because of his wife, the angels tell Little Joe that he’s going to have a second chance. He isn’t going to die for another six months and in that time he has to see the error of his ways or else he’ll have to go with the first bunch. The thing of it is that he doesn’t remember the deal. He lives. He recovers. He tries to be a better husband. He wins the lottery. Everything that happens to him has one side or the other influencing how events turn out. Then time runs out – and not only for him. This movie is called Cabin in the Sky – and I’ve already said a bit too much about how it turns out. Anyway, it made me think a little – we only get just one chance in this life. It’s too easy to get caught up in the bills that have to be paid, the food that has to be put on the table, the repairs to the house we live in – the whole point is to keep us too busy to think that we have no garantee about matters of life and/or death. Then again, if we aren’t kept just busy enough, it’s too easy to not be busy enough to avoid temptation.

...Anyway, that's just how I feel about it ... What do you think?
