The other day my mother was watching television when I noticed a commercial for a Hallmark movie entitled Love’s Everlasting Courage. It looked interesting, so I looked it up. When I searched the title on my computer, I discovered that the full movie was available on YouTube, so I decided to watch it.
grew up watching Hallmark movies with my grandmother. All of the Hallmark
movies my grandmother had shown me promoted faith, hope, love, and family
togetherness. However, I have also seen bits and pieces of some of the more
recent Hallmark movies, and to be honest they all missed the mark by a long
shot. Therefore I didn’t expect much when I decided to watch this one. But I
was very pleasantly surprised to find that Love's Everlasting Courage was just as
wonderful as the movies my grandmother and shown me and then some.
This movie is chock-full of wisdom. So much so that I believe it is impossible to catch it all the first time you watch it. I plan on writing several blog posts about some of things I learned from this movie. Below, I have included the link to the movie as well as some quotes I wrote down while watching:
- “A man does have to go off and find his way, make his own life; but he shouldn’t forget where he came from.”
- “Giving up hope is for the hopeless.”
- “When things seem to overwhelm you, slow down and focus on the task in front of you. Take care of it and move on to the next one.”
- “The truth of God’s love is not that He allows bad things to happen; it’s His promise that He will be standing right there beside you when they do.”
