Love...

Unlike other days this week, I'll be discussing something else, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).  Movies!

As I've said in the past, I usually watch movies on television (TV), whenever I have either computer work or paperwork, to do.

Although I enjoy watching new movies, I enjoy watching any movie.  Especially, older movies.

There are times when I am truly happy that movies I adore are being shown.

Sometimes, I am so happy seeing them, again.  In fact, if they are available repeatedly, I will watch them, over and over again.

Thinking about some of those kinds of movies, I thought I'd list some for you:

Daddy Long Legs, starring Fred Astaire, Leslie Caron and more actors.  To read about this movie, click on this link:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daddy_Long_Legs_(1955_film).  This musical comedy film is nice to watch, for various reasons.  I like that it shows some of France, New York City, and smaller areas in USA.

There's No Business Like Show Business, starring Ethel Merman, Donald O'Connor, Marilyn Monroe, Mitzi Gaynor, and more actors.  Click on this link, to read about this movie:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/There%27s_No_Business_Like_Show_Business_(film).  I found this musical-comedy-drama film nice to watch, for it offers a variety of feelings.

The Grapes of Wrath, starring Henry Fonda, Jane Darwell, John Carradine, Shirley Mills and more actors.  Check out this movie, by clicking on this link:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Grapes_of_Wrath_(film).  This is truly a drama film, but clearly reflects what life was like for many.  Especially, during the era of the Depression.

A Place In The Sun, starring Montgomery Clift, Elizabeth Taylor and Shelley Winters.  Here is a link for you to check out this drama film:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Place_in_the_Sun_(film).  Even though this is a murder story, it seems to be a reflection on life, to some people. 

Murder by Death, starring Peter Falk, Alec Guinness, David Niven, Peter Sellers, Nancy Walker and more actors.  Click here to read about this movie:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murder_by_Death.  I must admit, I've watched this mystery comedy film over and over, again.  It's rather unique in nature, even though it is an older film. 

Roman Holiday, starring Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn.  To read about this romantic comedy film, click on this link:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roman_Holiday.  This is another movie that I have watched over, and over again.  Why?  It's filled with love.

An Affair to Remember, starring Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr.  Click here, to check out this romantic film:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/An_Affair_to_Remember.  I must admit, this movie touches my heart, every time I watch it.  Why?  Because there is true love.

In all these films, there is love.  Even if life isn't easy in the storyline, there is definitely love.

To me, love is so very important.  Even if human love isn't always available to everyone.

Even so, thinking about love, made me think about Jesus.

Just as we read, in 1 John 4:19, "We love him, because he first loved us."

Yes, those of us who have gained salvation by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ, love Him.

But, our love didn't come first.  His love did.

Jesus came to earth, to fulfill God the Father's plan of redemption for us.  And, He did it.  He gave His physical life, here on earth, to pay the price for our sin.  And, the sin of the world, of all who will believe upon Him.

He loved us, that much.

Even though none of us had even yet been born.

How great a love He had for us. 

Because of this, we can now love Him.

Hopefully, you do.  For if you do, then some day we'll meet in Heaven, and honour our Lord.


Until next time...
