Happy Saturday flowers...we're ever so close to Christmas Day, so I thought that I would take these last weeks to share some of my favourite Christmas movies...ones that I have watched since a child and now. I hope you enjoy them and you keep warm & careful as you go out in the winter weather if you happen to be experiencing it where you are!! Enjoy.
P.S. All my love & prayers go to those dealing with loss due to the Connecticut shootings....I pray that we find our way back to love some how & realise how very precious life really is...we can make a difference!
George Bailey is a small town man who's life seems so hopeless that he contemplates suicide. He had always wanted to leave the little Bedford Falls and see the world, but things in life and his own good heart have led him to stay. He gave up his education for his brother's, kept the family business afloat and protected the town against the greedy banker Mr. Potter and married his childhood sweetheart. As he prepares to jump from a bridge, an angel intercedes and shows him what his life would have been like for everyone in Bedford Falls had he never been born.
This is my favourite, because many of us struggle through life and forget how important we are to those around us. Christmas can be a time of loneliness as much as it is about happiness and love. And this movie shows from a different point of view what life would be like if we had never come across the people we know & just how much we can make a difference in their life without even knowing it. With Christmas being a some what lonely time for people, we should remind ourselves if we have much, we should give just the same & if you know someone that will be alone at Christmas..make sure to visit them or invite them around...you could be changing or saving their lives!!
(I could only find the colourised version, the black and white one just wanted you to click on links, so I didn't think it safe for your computers, just in case - but it still has the same warm message all the same)
Obviously these are from the B&W original version of the movie ;)
