It’s that time of year…one of our favorite Christmas movies..”It’s A Wonderful Life”is being watched by many.

Remember when George was a little boy? He saved his brother and gave up hearing in one ear and future dreams when Harry came back from college. But he also saved someone else’s life….the pharmacist, Mr. Gower.

Mr. Gower lost his son and ended up filling an incorrect prescription. George did not deliver the medicine, knowing that they were incorrect. And Mr. Gower hit his bad ear. And George took it and said he understood. He kept the secret…and saved Mr. Gower’s career.

You know the story….

Sacrifice.

Nothing but sacrifice. He laid down his life for those he loved and cared for…and he did it over and over throughout his entire life.

George was human and it all kind of piled up on him, like it has many of us. And the Father reached out to prove how wrong George was about his wasted life…

I believe He still does that friends. If we just listen. He loves us, we are valuable. Christ laid down His life for us….so we might live.

Maybe that’s why “It’s a Wonderful Life” resonates with so many of us.  We understand how George felt, and we rejoice when we see just how much he is truly loved.

That kind of love, that kind of sacrifice….is JESUS.

I love Jesus. If I say nothing else, that is enough. But for those curiosity seekers, I am a 57 year old former special education teacher, current part time CCM Radio Announcer, part time office manager, part time writer... who is married to her high school sweetheart. We have been together for 41 years, married 38 of those years! We have raised two sons, who are now married, have jobs and mortgages. AND...we are going to become grandparents to a baby girl in August!! First time grandparents and we are over the moon! We also have our furry son, a West Highland Terrier. My heart's desire is to encourage people in their daily life. I believe that the Father speaks to us all the time, sometimes I have been too busy to listen. Even during times of trials and troubles, He is ever present. ~Be Encouraged Today~

  1. I’ve seen the beginning and the end of the movie…nothing in between. Kind of un-American, isn’t it?! Loved the way you related it to Jesus’ sacrifice for us. I’ll put it on my must-see list! 🙂
