Lassie's Christmas Story (1958)

This is the sweetest little show you'll ever want to see!

Oh how things have changed in our country.  I love for our family to watch these together. They are the BEST! God is clearly honored and oh such a sweet spirit in these shows!  This of course is part I. All parts seem to be available.

I bought a dvd set of three Lassie Christmas shows and boy am I glad I did!

This will put a smile on your face and a skip in your step!

Merry Christmas!   Amelia

P.S. Did I ever tell you about the time 60 Minutes aired a clip on our family dog, Minnie Pearl?  Yes, Minnie Pearl gave our dog catcher a Christmas card when I was a little girl.  Those were the days...

'Meet John Doe' (1941) A Christmas Must-See

This is a neat-neat movie. You won't see anything like this in theatres today...This is a Frank Capra great.  I hope you enjoy the movie as much as our family has!

The movie also confronts materialism as you will see in the following Heelots clip.  Don't be a Heelot!  : )

Don't know what a Heelot is?  See the clip below and you will see!  ...just don't be one or let one get you! Trust me...they are among us! : )

The ending of the movie is amazing where Christ is unashamedly mentioned in a beautiful way. Here is the movie in entirety.  You can also purchase the movie as well, and at times Turner Classics will air this great movie. Enjoy!

One interesting fact is that Frank Capra is from the same Italian village my grandpa was from. In fact in a biography I have of Frank Capra it mentions my Grandpa's family name as a neighbor. I think it's so interesting. : )

I hope everyone is having  a peaceful Christ-filled holy season and that you enjoy these movie suggestions and clips as much as our family does, they are so wonderful and just such a sweet way to spend some nice family down time together.  

May we lift our country up in prayer,   ~amelia

Meet Billy! Billy's Story, His Cage Had Rusted Shut. MUST SEE

This story is so touching. This story happens many times, way too many.... and this one has a happy ending.

Let's remember fur angels this Christmas and always.  They are God's creatures. May we care for them too.

We have four doglets and three were rescued. I cannot tell you the joy they bring our family, it's a wonderful way of teaching our children no matter how old compassion and care.
