Charity!

Before I begin today's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I want to wish my daughter, P... Happy Birthday!  I'm looking forward to spending time with you, and our family, today!  xoxo

Today, I'll be letting you know about some more movies I've watched!

Tender is the Night, starring Jennifer Jones, Jason Robards and more actors!  Here is a link for you to read about it:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tender_Is_the_Night_(film).  This was a movie about love and divorce.  To me, it was okay, but not special.

Three Coins in the Fountain, starring Clifton Webb, Dorothy McGuire and several other actors.  Check it out, here:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three_Coins_in_the_Fountain_(film).  This romantic comedy film touched my heart.  Not just due to what was in the movie itself, but even more due to the fact that I recall being at the Trevi Fountain with my now deceased husband, Gordon.  Yes, we both threw coins into the fountain...  But, we will never return there together, again.

Love and Savagery, starring Allan Hawco, Sarah Greene, and more actors.  Here is where you can find info on it (unfortunately I didn't find a link for Wikipedia...sniff, sniff):  http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1213921/.  To me, it seemed to be a very different movie.  Yes, there was some sin in the movie, but it was actually more about love.  Not just love for a couple... but, more about love for God.

The Owl and the Pussycat, starring Barbra Streisand and George Segal.  Check out this link for information:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Owl_and_the_Pussycat_(film).  Even though this film had a lot of questionable things in it, it certainly was a romantic comedy film.

I Was a Male Warbride, starring Cary Grant, Ann Sheridan and Marion Marshall.  Check it out, here:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I_Was_a_Male_War_Bride.  Even though this is called a comedy film, I do believe there was love in it.  If not, the Male Warbride situation would not have been dealt with.  I enjoyed this movie!

Even though these films were basically filled with comedy and sin, they all seemed to be focusing on 'love'.

Love is so very important. 

Just as we read, in 1 Peter 4:8, "And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins."

As you may or may not be aware, I usually use KJV Bible verses, on LwL.

Knowing that some Christians are aware, I wouldn't need to expand my writing in another way.  But, since some readers may not know about the difference in wording in different versions of the Bible, I thought that I would also use the NKJV of 1 Peter 4:8, "And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins.” "

Surely, you can see that the older version of the Bible uses the word 'charity', which meant 'love'.  But, in the newer version of the Bible, it uses the word 'love', so that people do not need to learn about older words in use.

Reading these two (2) versions actually tell us the same thing.  Above all things, we need to have fervent love for one another, for 'love will cover a multitude of sins'.

This is such a wonderful Bible verse, for it shows us that love will cover a multitude of sins. 

Not just for us, by us.  But also, regarding our God's love for us!

After all, no one who has ever lived here on earth, has ever loved people more than He has.  Jesus, gave His life so that we would have a way to gain salvation, and receive everlasting life and love.

Thank you, my Lord, Jesus Christ!  I'm truly thankful you love me.  And, others.


Until next time...
