Love, In Many Ways...

If you've been reading Life with Lynnie (LwL) for a while now, you'll be aware that once again I am recovering from surgery.  No stitches.  My wound area is open, and healing from the inside, out.

Being unable to do much of anything has meant that I have been reading more, relaxing, and watching videos and television (tv).

How grateful I am that I receive the tv station, http://moviestvnetwork.com/ through my digital converter/receiver!  It's a great station with all sorts of movies, including old ones.

Being love month (February), has meant that there have been a lot of movies to watch, where love has been the focus.  Yesterday, I watched two (2).

First, I watched Nothing in Common, starring Tom Hanks and Jackie Gleason.  It was a movie that certainly had its ups and downs being considered a comedy/drama film, concerning life and happiness.  However, in the end, love was certainly seen.  Here is a link to check it out:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nothing_in_Common.

Later, I watched Every Time We Say Goodbye, starring Tom Hanks and Christina Marsillach.  This was definitely a film filled with people differences (including language), stress and love.  Here is a link to check it out:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Every_Time_We_Say_Goodbye_(film).

A while back, I came across a series of videos by Andy Stanley entitled, Love, Sex & Dating.  Below are links for you to listen/watch.

Don't be misled thinking that if you're married, the videos would be of no value.  For, I believe they are.  To everyone.

Love.  It's something that each one of us needs.  Whether shared with a spouse, friend or family member.

It's something that Jesus told us we need to have and show others.

Just as God told us in John 13:35, "By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another."

After all, love is so very important.  Nothing is truly more important.

Except of course, salvation.

Our lives here on earth may seem long.  But, in reality, compared to eternity, they are relatively short.

Where we spend eternity is of utmost importance.

By believing upon/trusting in our Lord, Jesus Christ, we gain salvation. 

What greater love could we ever receive, than this?!


Until next time...
