We recently watched the movie, The Bucket List, thinking we would end up turning it off. But we didn’t. The message speaks loud and clear that every moment we live matters. We were quite affected with how much one person can make the difference in another person’s life. Although Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman play two completely different characters with two opposing worldviews – they inevitably become friends, and it is a friendship with lasting impact. The high esteem given to marriage, even though it isn’t perfect, is powerful. We finished the movie with a stronger conviction to model what true Christian marriage is all about. We love because Christ has first loved us (period!). Faith is what carries us when we aren’t sure we can keep going. And God is the author and finisher of our faith – it’s ALL Him.!
As we come to the end of the first week of the New Year, we are challenged by the following video put together by NixSeraph set to the song by Tim McGraw titled, Live Like You Were Dying. Spoiler Alert: If you haven’t seen the movie, which is hard to believe because EVERYONE sees movies before us, and you are planning to, then you won’t want to watch this video.
May each of us love our spouses more this year as we focus on what really matters! Have you made your I.Heart.List yet? Why not plan an evening to get one started. Follow the link to read some of ours!
