first and foremost, Shannan, over at flower patch farm girl,
has just gone beyond reaching her goal for raising $10,000 to build a well for clean drinking water for a village!
how cool is God?
His dreams and hopes for us are always so much bigger than our own.
there is still time to donate,
why not let God use your small gift to bless others?
i also, being the movie addict i am, wanted to share my
top 6 Christmas movies,
for those that are running out to rent a movie for the coming weekend.
(and, yes, i know that none of these films puts Christ in His rightful place front and center)
in no particular order...
How the Grinch Stole Christmas
the ron howard version is soooo good.
yes, i grew up on the cartoon one,
and though i am not a jim carrey fan, he was such a good grinch, this movie is impossible not to quote.
not entirely appropriate, but not 'bad' either.
another one that gets played in july here.
and quoted all the time.
the best way to spread Christmas cheer is by singing loud for all to hear.
the Santa Clause
with tim allen. love tim, love the premise of this movie.
Miracle on 34th Street
natalie wood and maureen o'hara.
The Shop Around the Corner
because my favorite actor is in it. it's sweet, it's cute.
and my absolute favorite is , of course,
It's a Wonderful Life.
i try every year to only watch this after thanksgiving.
i love it so much, it by far extends to my all time favorite list as well.
a few runners up:
(bing, bing ;))
Christmas with the Kranks,
Samantha, an American girl holiday,
and of course charlie brown, frosty, etc. from my childhood:)
there are still quite a few i have never seen, and WILL...next year!
notice that Christmas Story isn't on my list?
i have HATED, loathed
that movie since childhood.
seriously, it would make my top 5 most hated films.
i find nothing cute about it.
okay, i'll stop now.
i just really don't like it .
what are your go-to movies for Christmas?
