Last evening we watch a really good movie. And for me to even say I watched a movie is pretty good!! It is very hard these days to sit down and watch a movie beginning to end, having 3 boys 5 and under, its hard for them to enjoy an adult type movie. So Delvyn and I rarely watch ’em right now. And when we do, we try to make sure they will be worth our time.
The other day I receive a DVD from SwapaDVD, and we were wanting to watch it, and we finally decided to last evening. It was really, really good.
Though None Go With Me tells the story of Elizabeth-On the day of her granddaughter’s departure to California — in the company of her rock musician boyfriend — Elizabeth Leroy Bishop (Cheryl Ladd) tries to tell her the story of how she came to spend her life in the town of Three Rivers, and the rewards she has received from that life. We flash back to 1950, just after Elizabeth’s mother died of cancer — of college age, Elizabeth (Amy Grabow) comes home to live with her physician father (Christopher Allport), and meets the young associate pastor Ben Phillips (Brad Rowe), who is newly arrived in town. Elizabeth is heavily involved with the life of the church, and the two quickly become friends and more. Ben eventually asks Elizabeth to marry him; but first he must fulfill his obligation as a minister, to serve as an army chaplain in Korea. A series of tragedies test Elizabeth’s faith over the ensuing 50 years, and just as she reaches a point of beginning to understand what she sees as God’s plan for her, two unexpected events await. ~ Bruce Eder, Rovi
And to say the least, it is a tear-jerker, and not only for me. I love movies like this, they make you talk afterward. It knits our hearts closer together and we realize we need to hang on to the beauty of today. We don’t need to be dreaming of the tomorrows, waiting for them to happen.
Enjoy the days God has given to us now, and don’t worry about all the ‘What-ifs’. We need to love each other and our children with our whole hearts and beings right now!! And totally TRUST God!! Even when we don’t understand His plan for our life.
If you would like to get free Dvd’s check out SwapaDvd. You can exchange Dvd’s with others, just for the cost of shipping. (You only pay when you ship one. Not for requesting one.) We have gotten a few good movies now, even though we had to wait for a bit for a good one to become available. We really like the Hallmark Movies. I know not all of them meet my standards, but most have a very good story and mostly clean language. But they are decent over all.
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Phil. 4:8
