The Beatles!

Today, on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'll be discussing something a little bit different.

The Beatles.

On Sunday evenings, the American television station, CBS quite often has programmes I enjoy watching.  Like The Amazing Race, or others. 

Last evening, they aired The Beatles:  The Night That Changed America - A GRAMMY Salute.  Here is a link so you can read about it:  http://www.cbs.com/shows/the-night-that-changed-america/.

This tribute happened on Sunday, February 9th, because it was the 50 year anniversary of when The Beatles first appeared on the Ed Sullivan show.

You may be wondering if I saw the original airing of this group that changed the world musically.  I did.

At the time, I had only weeks earlier turned 11 years old.  Even so, I adored music at that age, and was blown away by the songs they sang.  I loved every minute of that show!

In my mind, it was a wonderful tribute.  Even so, it brought tears to my eyes.

Not only did it make me feel old, but it brought back memories.  Memories of my childhood.  And, of how life has changed so very much.

I was reminded about where I lived at the time I watched The Beatles that first (1st) time.  And, was reminded of my life at that time.

Childhood memories flooded my mind.  Thoughts of friends from when I was young flashed back.

How I loved them, then.  And, how I love them now, is no different.

At least in my mind. 

And, in God's, for He told us so, in Hebrews 13:1, "Let brotherly love continue."

Yet life has changed.

All our lives have separated and have drawn apart.  Whether or not they feel the same connection I do, only God knows. 

Even so, I pray for each one.  I pray that one day, we'll all meet again, whether here or in heaven.

Of course, this means that everyone will have to be saved, in order to meet in heaven.  How will this happen?

By believing upon the Lord, Jesus Christ (Acts 16:31).


Until next time...
