Upright!

In the past, I've discussed here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), how I have been without a television (TV) for a while, now.

Even though it hasn't been easy, I've been grateful I have internet access!

It has been painful each and every time I've had to sit up at the computer.  Even to write LwL entries!

After all, that drainage tube and plastic poking part, causes me pain almost every second of every day.  Except when I'm sleeping...

I've mentioned previously, that I've watched some movies on YouTube.  I've truly enjoyed being able to do this, as I've said before.

In the past, I've found other online providers where I could watch films.  However, many of them now want people to sign up.  And, I don't like the thought of doing that.

My nurse let me know that she uses www.crackle.com to watch movies.  Hmmm... 

I had never heard of that site.  So, I checked it out and enjoyed watching the following films:

The Wrecking Crew, starring Dean Martin, Elke Sommer, Tina Louise, and others.  Here is a link, where you can check out this comedy film:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Wrecking_Crew_(1968_film).  Being a comedy-type movie with characters similar to 007 spy films, it was easy to watch.

Murderer's Row, starring Dean Martin, Ann Margaret and Karl Malden.  Check out this spy comedy movie here:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murderers'_Row_(film).  This was another comedy-type spy movie that was easy to watch.

Seems Like Old Times, starring Goldie Hawn and Chevy Chase.  Here's a link to this comedy film:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seems_Like_Old_Times_(film).  This was an enjoyable movie for me, even though the story line seemed to be complicated.  I was grateful that it wasn't filled with sin.

*  A Buddy Story, starring Gavin Bellour and Elisabeth Moss.  Here's where you can check out this film:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Buddy_Story.  Even though this was promoted as a comedy film online, I don't believe it was.  I didn't find it funny, at all.  In fact, I felt badly for the characters, off and on throughout the movie, even if I did enjoy the ending.  All in all, it was good to watch, for it was a film where the main characters were not filled with sin in their relationship.

As you know, I've been watching many, many movies as of late.  Mainly, due to the fact that I cannot watch TV, since mine was sent away for repair or replacement.

Even so, I was grateful to have come across films of this nature. 

Films that even though they may give the impression of having sin in them, were not filled with it.  There truly wasn't much sin, to watch.

Thinking about living uprightly, brought to mind Ephesians 5:15-16, "See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,
16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil."

Yes, we must wisely live our lives.  We must stand up and live for Christ, and not just for ourselves, as humans. 

We need to live each day, walking in the spirit.  And, not in the flesh.

It isn't easy. 

However, God provides for us... His children.  When we belong to Him.

After all, this is an evil world we live in.  And, Satan is the father of it.

If you haven't yet come to Christ, trusting Him for your salvation, I pray you will.  Before, it is too late.


Until next time...
