love comes softly

Have you ever seen the movie, Love Comes Softly?

It's about a young woman, Marty, in the early 1800's who travels out west, loses her husband, marries a widower out of desparation, falls in love with him and lives happily ever after. :)

I love it!!!!

They play it on Hallmark a lot but you can rent it at a movie place.
There are several in the series, originally from books by Janette Oke.

Caroline and I just watched it again and loved every minute. I cried and cried.
If you ever have a chance to see it - do it! Rent it. It is wonderful.

Here's a great scene from the movie...

Marty: I just don't understand why the God you pray to would let such unthinkable things happen to decent people.

Clark: If I am walking along beside Missy (his daughter) and she falls, it's not because I allowed her to fall. But I pick her up and carry her and take care of her with a Fatherly love. The truth of God's love is not that he allows bad things to happen. It's His promise that He'll be here with us when they do.
Love that!!! I think I'm gonna scrap it.

Hope you had a happy Mothers Day.
I'm still sick but feeling it leave.

This sounds great! I'll be looking for it.

I spent Mother's Day on the couch with some kind of bug too. Kirsten had it first, then me.

Happy Mother's Day!

I'm a Janette Oke fan from way back--about the fifth or sixth grade, I think. Lovely movie. Have you read Francine Rivers? Did you see "The Last Sin Eater"? You must! You must!

I love this movie based on the book. There were 8 books total and would be great for Caroline to read in a couple of years. Hallmark just recently showed the 5th movie which should be available to purchased by the end of June. I can't wait to add it to my collection. Teresa B.

I read the series as a young woman...haven't watched the movies. Wonder if Blockbuster has them?

Hope you have a good week.

I think I read this years ago, but I haven't seen the movie. I'll keep an eye out for it on tv; since I'm off work, I'm running out of things to watch. LOL! Glad to hear that you are feeling a little better.

Sounds like a very good movie. I'll have to check it out. That's a good answer when people ask "why does GOD let bad things happen".
