At The End of the Rainbow...

As I discussed yesterday, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), last Saturday was a very special day for me.  My drainage tube, that was causing me much pain, was finally removed.

Then, in the evening, one of my favourite movies was aired on television (TV).  Breakfast at Tiffany's, starring Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard.  Here is a link to read about the movie:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Breakfast_at_Tiffany's_(film). 

By the way, it aired again, last evening.  I watched it, again!

In the movie, Audrey Hepburn sings a song that means a lot to me.

Moon River, was written by Henry Mancini and Johnny Mercer.  Here's a link to read about the song:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moon_River.

Here is a link to Moon River, sung by Audrey Hepburn in the movie, so you can listen and/or sing along:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6UoIO4qxJig.  The lyrics are below.

Moon River

Moon river, wider than a mile
I'm crossing you in style some day
Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker
Wherever you're goin', i'm goin' your way

Two drifters, off to see the world
There's such a lot of world to see
We're after the same rainbow's end, waitin' 'round the bend
My huckleberry friend, moon river, and me


As a human, I believe we are truly after the same rainbow's end.  We all want to have a fulfilled life, filled with love.

I can relate to the movie in a rather different way.  Just as Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn) couldn't accept being in love, neither could I, when I was young.

No, our reasons for treating life that way, were not the same.  She was looking to marry a rich person. 

I just didn't think I was loveable.  Didn't think I could be loved, at that time of my life.

This led to my life becoming a mess, for I ended a friendship/relationship, that may have been the best one for me, in my life.

While my life has not always been perfect, I must say that I am grateful to God for loving me.  For being my pot of gold, at the end of the rainbow.

After all, God is love.

Just as we read in 1 John 4:7-10, "Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.
10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins."

How grateful I am that God sent His Son, our Lord, Jesus Christ, to come to earth, to be the propitiation for our sins. 

Those of us who love Him, need to love one another, just as God told us.

So, I'm going to love you, by praying for you.  May God bless you, and your life.  And, provide you with eternal salvation... if you don't already have it.


Until next time...
