Good Flick

This evening watched a 1989 movie called Dad, (on HBO) starring Jack Lemmon.It really touched my heart.

Its about a young executive who returns home to take care of his aging parents.Its about care giving, relationships, love and understanding. The movie struck a cord in me.There are so many tender moments in it, you want to cry.
I would recommend to to all my friends specially those who have aging parents.
Have to pray for the political leadership of my country and our coalition government. The Left parties and others have withdrawn support and the present UPA alliance is short of 9 seats in the Parliament.Our country is in a great upheaval.Its all due to the nuclear deal.
May the Lord guide our leaders.

Once again thank you for my opening my eyes to the needs of others in different countries. Oh, what we take for granted here in the U.S.

Rev. 22:20 "He who testifies to these things says, "Yes, I am coming soon." Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.

Hi Amrita,
My pleasure really. And thanks for this film info. Must watch.
You know Amrita, this time we need to pray for a government with the fear of the Lord inside. They say, India is the most spiritual country and it reminds everyone of mysticism. But, we know how mysterious are the ways of our polititians, how deceptive too! God, save this country.

I remember that movie-a good one:)
I know Gods Word says that He sets the leaders of nations in place, but I cant help but shake my head and wonder what He is thinking sometimes. Then I remember this earth, this life, is not as it was meant to be, that there is coming a new hvn & earth where all this conflict and unrest will be no more. Some days I cant wait for that! God bless you toda amrita:)

Since I am an aging parent, and had aging parents...that movie is a must see.
Will certainly pray for your country and government that the Lord would truly guide and direct your leaders.

Thank you friends for commenting.

Have to keep praying for our government. On July 22nd there is a vote of confidence in Parliament.
God appoints leaders and giver authority to kings and princes, the Bible says.

When I see your hope on our 'netas', I just can't help but smile. Even God probably gave up on those jokers! :) But I like your positive mind.
(alright - I didn't mean to offend your religious sentiments in any form)
