Mom... & I Reckon...

Before I begin Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'd like to mention that today is the anniversary of my mom's death.  Even though it has been several years now, I must admit... I truly miss my mom. 

Once again, here on LwL, I'm letting you know about some movies I've watched.

Here they are:

Fourteen Hours, starring Paul Douglas, Richard Basehart and other actors.  To check out this film noir, click here:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fourteen_Hours.  In the past, I saw this movie.  And, enjoyed it, again.

The King of Marvin Gardens, starring Jack Nicholson, Bruce Dern and Ellen Burstyn.  If you'd like to click here, you can check out this drama filmhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_King_of_Marvin_Gardens.  This movie truly touched my heart, for there was much suffering... especially, near the end of the film.

Eyewitness, starring William Hurt, Sigourney Weaver, Christopher Plummer and James Wood.  Click here, if you'd like to check out this thriller filmhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eyewitness_(1981_film).  Even though it quoted as being a thriller film, to me... it is truly a murder mystery movie.  Yes, it was stressful in parts, but I enjoyed it.

The Dark Corner, starring Lucille Ball, Clifton Webb, William Bendix and Mark Stevens.  If you'd like to check out this black-and-white film noir, click here:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Dark_Corner.  I enjoyed watching this movie, even though it was much like a murder mystery.

*  Sirocco, starring Humphrey Bogart, Marta Toren and Lee J. Cobb.  This film noir can be checked out, here:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sirocco_(film).  Even though this movie was filled with drama, I must admit that I enjoyed it.

As I'm sure you can tell, none of these movies seemed to have humour.  Comedy, was not there at all.

The drama that filled all these films made them worth watching.  At least, in my mind.

How come? 

It reminded me about how people suffer in this world.

Thinking of this, brought to mind Romans 8:18, "For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us."

Just as we read, the sufferings of this present time, are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

Okay, the movies didn't have God in them.  They weren't Christian films.

However, they did focus on how people suffered.  And, they truly did, in those movies.

Yes, everyone suffers. 

Even those of us who belong to Him, suffer.  But, because we are of His family, the sufferings cannot be compared with the glory that God reveals in us.

We, who are His children know that He loves us, and will provide for us.  His Word, the Bible... tells us so.

And, we know it is true.  For He provides for us.  Always.

Does He provide for you?

Do you belong to Him?

Hopefully, you have come to trust in/believe upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.  If you have, then you will have gained salvation, and become part of His family.

If you have, then I will look forward to seeing you in Heaven, some day!


Until next time...
