Better? Best!

Like I've done before, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I will be discussing movies!

Here are some I've recently watched:

We're Not Married! starring, Marilyn Monroe, Mitzi Gaynor, Ginger Rogers, Fred Allen and many, many more actors.  To check out this romantic comedy film, click here:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/We%27re_Not_Married!  While some people think this was truly a comedy film, I did not.  It made me upset that people who thought they were married, were truly not.

That Touch of Mink, starring Doris Day and Cary Grant.  If you'd like to read about this romantic comedy film, click here:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/That_Touch_of_Mink.  In the past, I've watched this film before.  While I do think this is a romantic film, I don't really think it is a comedy movie.

Murphy's Romance, starring James Garner, Sally Field and other actors.  Click here, to check out this romantic comedy film:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murphy%27s_Romance.  Like some other movies, I've seen this more than once, and enjoy it... even though I don't really find it to be a comedy film.

The Quiet Man, starring John Wayne, Maureen O'Hara, Barry Fitzgerald and more actors.  To check out this romantic comedy drama film, click here:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Quiet_Man.  Just like some films quoted about today, I've seen this one... many times.  I've never found it to be a comedy movie, but truly enjoy this romantic drama film.

Breakfast at Tiffany's, starring Audrey Hepburn, George Peppard, Patricia Neal, Buddy Ebson and Mickey Rooney.  If you'd like to check out this romantic comedy film, click here:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Breakfast_at_Tiffany%27s_(film).  You're probably aware that I have seen this movie, repeatedly.  I do believe this is a romantic film, I never truly found it to be a comedy film.  Even so, I truly adore this movie and love seeing the ending.

If you read what I wrote about these movies, you'll realize that they are all romantic comedy films.  And yes, there was some drama in them, even if it wasn't quoted.

Knowing that February is a love month, and that Valentine's Day just occurred a few days ago, I thought I would again address the issue of love.

After all, as humans, it seems we all adore love.

Yes, it seems we all want and pray for love... from someone who will love us.  And, someone who we can love. 

However, God's love for us, is so very more important.  And, special.

Just as we read, in Jeremiah 31:3, "The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee."

Yes, He has loved us with an everlasting love:  therefore with lovingkindness He has drawn us to Him.

For this, I truly praise God!  And, want to glorify Him.

After all, before we were even born, He already decided who He planned on saving.  He alone, knows who will gain salvation, and who won't.

We don't know.  But, He does.

And, He has drawn to him, people who He knew would gain salvation.  People like me.  And, hopefully... you.

No... you didn't need to be perfect in order to have God draw you to Him.  For no one is perfect, just He has told us.

However, when He draws someone to Him, that person realizes that they are a sinner, who needs to be saved by grace (alone), through faith (alone), in Christ (alone)... as we read in Ephesians 2:8-9

To me, this is truly wonderful.

Why?  Because all we have to do is trust in/believe upon our Lord, Jesus Christ, and we shall be saved (Acts 16:31)!

In my opinion, nothing could ever be better.  It's the best love, we could ever receive.


Until next time...
