Well I couldn’t sleep the other night and so I decided to watch a DVD.
I had recently received several new Dvd’s and so chose to watch one of the new Christian Dvd’s that I had, one called Fireproof.
It is a story of a failed marriage – I can certainly relate to that! Actually I guess to be more accurate it is a story of a failing marriage which is saved by grace and as a result of biblical application.
So I put it on and lay in bed watching it and I have to be honest it reduced me to tears. Now those of you who know me well will know that I certainly do often cry over sad situations and for other people, I just don’t cry very much for me.
But you know I really can’t in all honesty claim that my tears (which were frequent during the watching of this film) were all for the people in the film or for others. I have to accept and be willing to acknowledge that some of those tears were indeed for me.
Were they in recognition of or as a result of the loneliness that I sometimes feel? Certainly this is very possible. Could it be that a part of them was for the love that I once had and have lost? Certainly I loved my wife and to lose love is to gain a void. Am I feeling such sadnesses but supressing them? Do they only appear at times like these when I watch a poingnant film? I am not sure.
What I do know is how much I enjoyed the movie and how much I think it will benefit others – especially couples – and it certainly does provide food for thought and prayer.
