First...

Lately, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I've discussed my health situation.  Today, I thought I might do something different.

As I'm sure you're aware, I cannot drive.  Nor, walk any distance.  To lift, bend, stretch, or do anything physical with my body, is absolutely not possible.

It seems the only things I can do, are sleep, lay down, recline in my living room chair, since my incision is so lengthy.  And, I'm in a great amount of pain.

I read.  My Bible is important to me. 

Thankfully, I premade some meals and froze them, so I don't have to cook.  I'm able to eat, and clean myself up, having a shower.

For all this, I praise God.

Still, I have a lot of time on my hands.  Time, that is rather boring. 

Living alone, isn't easy.  Especially, not in my physical condition. 

On Saturday, I felt like I couldn't move much.  So, I relaxed and watched television (tv).

A couple of movies, actually.

The first (1st) was entitled, A Raisin in the Sun.  It starred Sidney Poitier and Ruby Dee.  Here is a link so you can read about it:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Raisin_in_the_Sun_(1961_film).

I thoroughly enjoyed this film.  Being a drama, I found it rather touching.

The last one starred Michael Caine and Shelley Winters and was entitled, Alfie.  Here's a link so you can find out more about the film:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alfie_(1966_film).

This last film disappointed me.  In some ways, to be sure.

Both, seemed to show the reality of life. 

Different circumstances, of course.  Still, it revealed truth about how people live, when God is not first and foremost in their lives.

Some scenes were truly heartbreaking to me.  The characters truly had not followed what God would have them do.

Place Him first in their lives.

Even though we are told to do so, in Matthew 6:33, "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."

Please don't misunderstand me.  I'm not condemning anyone.

I realize that we all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23).  Including me.

I also realize that none of us are born saved.  We are born, dead.  Dead in our trespasses and sin.

Once we come to Christ, and have gained salvation by trusting in Him, our lives and where we spend eternity, will change.

Still, it made me sad to think about how popular these movies were, when they were made, so many years ago.

No matter what, I always praise our Lord for revealing truth. 

After all, He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.  No one comes to the Father, but by Him. 

The question for you is:  Where will you spend eternity?


Until next time...
