Brother Orchid (1940)

Another Great One...Our family just enjoyed this last night... Oh this is a good one!

Brother Orchid (1940)

All parts are graciously being shared at this time on youtube...You may get started here with Part I if you like. : )

See how crime boss, John Sarto finds himself in a monastery...This is really a sweet show...You'll see. ; ) We had never heard of the film before... Great life lessons. So glad to have caught this one.

Edward G. Robinson and Humphrey Bogart star in this film. Enjoy!

The ending is great....Just wait and see.


See my other blog, for some sweet and economical Christmas gift ideas plus a recipe for homemade marshamallows. : )

Please pray for my back, I'm in a bit of pain and hope to get back to normal soon, thank the Lord, I'm improving day by day. It's been a good time to be alone with God.

Feel Like the Invisible Woman? You're Not Alone...

Let's all remember the Eternal dividends... It's not easy sometimes but may we encourage one another. : )

I've personally been dealing with a hurt back this week, and in pain, so this was refreshing to me. Our daughter, Michelle has been a dear to cook for me several days this week. *happy sigh* I know all is well when I see that. That love comes strongly from the kitchen many a day.

Hope you all are having a sweet Christmas season as we meditate upon our Lord, Jesus. I bet the Lord feels very invisible at times...Can you imagine how He must feel especially at Christmas time?

Grace and Peace to you this Holy Season... ~Amelia

P.S. Please don't forget to see my other blog... Perhaps this will provide a good chuckle and a good ponder as well! Don't let the Heelots get ya. ; )

Let's Give Ourselves Peace this Christmas...

loading ... Let's give ourselves Peace this Christmas, let's make this Christmas something to sing about!

One way I have found is to glean from flylady. You will find great crockpot recipes and common sense tips on keeping house and obtaining that peaceful Christmas season.

I hope you find this link helpful for flying through the Christmas season! I just really get a kick out of flylady!

As usual I have a movie suggestion for you...Our family is in the middle of watching it and I think you will really enjoy it... The name of the movie is, Our Vines Have Tender Grapes. (1945)

I like what a reviewer said about it: This is a wonderful movie starring Edward G Robinson and a very young Margaret O'Brien in "Our Vines Have Tender Grapes". What a splendid movie. They don't make films like this anymore and that's a shame. Edward G Robinson was the greatest actor of all time.

This clip really doesn't do the movie justice although it is precious indeed, the majority of the movie takes place in a lovely rural area... So far the movie and message is one of poignancy, joy and even a tear shed....even by my husband as we are viewing the movie this week....
