Before I begin today's entry on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I would like to wish my daughter B's boyfriend, L... Happy Birthday! May God bless you always, L!
Today, I'll be discussing something I have done quite often.
Here are some movies I watched, recently:
* The Bliss of Mrs. Blossom, starring Shirley MacLaine, Richard Attenborough and James Booth. If you'd like to check out this British comedy film, please click here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Bliss_of_Mrs._Blossom. Even though this movie was listed as a comedy film, I truly felt uncomfortable, due to it being sinful.
* The Girl Can't Help It, starring Tom Ewell, Jayne Mansfield and more actors. If you want, you can click on this link, to check out this musical comedy film: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Girl_Can't_Help_It. With this being a comedy film, I enjoyed the fact of there being love, within it.
* Johnny Be Good, starring Anthony Michael Hall, Robert Downey Jr., and Paul Gleason. Want to check out this American comedy film? Then, please... click here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnny_Be_Good. In this comedy film, I didn't find everything in this movie to be funny.
* Fatso, starring Dom DeLuise, Anne Bancroft and more actors. Click here, to check out this American comedy film: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fatso_(1980_film). There were things happening that weren't funny, but I enjoyed this movie. Especially, the ending.
* Swept Away, starring Madonna, Bruce Greenwood and more actors. Check out this British-Italian romantic comedy film, by clicking on this link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swept_Away_(2002_film). Though everything in this movie wasn't funny, I enjoyed it.
Even though all these movies were basically comedy films, they truly contained some love in them.
Life can feel good when there is love in our lives. But, if love is not there, life can feel very different.
Even so, when I think of love, I think of Jesus. And, what He said, in the New Testament portion of the Bible.
Just as we read, in Mark 12:30-31, "And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these."
Yes, we need to love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, all thy soul and with all thy mind and strength.
We also need to love thy neighbour as thyself.
As Jesus said, there is none other commandment greater than these.
When I reflect upon these commandments that Jesus told us, I realize that I am doing this, because I feel love.
Love, for Him. And, love for others, the way I love myself.
Because I belong to Him, my heart is affected this way. Hopefully, yours is, too.
If so, you will be blessed.
Until next time...
