Movies!

If you've been reading about my life, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), you'll be aware that I cannot do much.  At least, physically speaking.

And, you'll be aware that both on television (TV) and through the internet, I enjoy watching movies.

Here are some that I recently watched:

*  Great Balls of Fire!, starring Dennis Quaid.  Here is a link for you to read about this biographical film, filled with music:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Balls_of_Fire!_(film).  Wow!  What a movie!  What a life!  What great music!

*  New York, New York, starring Robert De Niro and Liza Minnelli.  Check out this musical drama, here:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York,_New_York_(film).  Watching marital problems in a film can sometimes represent real life, but can be disheartening.  Still, the music was wonderful!

*  Desk Set, starring Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn.  Check out this romance film:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desk_Set.  This was a movie that was okay to watch, but I was definitely happy with the ending. 

*  Barefoot In The Park, starring Robert Redford and Jane Fonda.  Here's a link for you to check it out:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barefoot_in_the_Park_(film).  Watching this movie, made me feel like I was riding on a roller coaster; the main character's marriage sort of seemed this way.  Still, it was an interesting film.

*  Good Neighbour Sam, starring Jack Lemmon, Dorothy Provine and Romy Schneider.  Here is a link to check out this comedy film:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Good_Neighbor_Sam.  I enjoyed watching this movie and hope you will, also.

*  Julia, starring Jane Fonda, Vanessa Redgrave and more.  Check out this drama film, here:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julia_(1977_film).  This is a story about a woman who fought against the Nazi's, prior to WW2.  Even though this was about a writer's life, watching this made me once again honour those who stand up and fight for freedom, whether in the military... or not.  It truly touched my heart.

As you can see, I have much time on my hands. 

And, I watch many films.  This is in addition to a few TV shows.

Even though I wish I could do more with my time, I realize that my time is in God's hands.  Not mine.  And, not yours, either.  In His hands, and His, alone.

He is in control of what happens to me.  The same applies to you, and others, also.

Just as we read Psalm 31:15, "My times are in thy hand: deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from them that persecute me."

Yes, the times and issues we experience in our lives, are not always what we would expect.  Nor, what we truly want in life.

However, we must trust God.

I do, and I pray you do, also.


Until next time...
