Jack’s Winning Words 6/4/15
“Strange, isn’t it? Each man’s life touches so many other lives. When he isn’t around he leaves an awful hole, doesn’t he?” (Clarence, the angel) Maybe there will be a time when you think that your life doesn’t matter. The movie, It’s a Wonderful Life, shows how each person can make a difference. Think of someone who has affected you, and what your life would be like without that person. It’s the same with each of us. We’re really affecting others. ;-) Jack
FROM CK IN MICHIGAN: Thanks for making me think. I pray for those who live with " That awful hole". I'm going to mow the lawn today And say thank you!====JACK: It would be a whole different world without those who influence us. Yes, that's a "thinking" idea.
FROM BLAZING OAKS: It's no wonder the IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE became such a timeless classic! It "packs a wallop" in assessing each person's unique worth in the grand scheme of life! Hopefully, it helps us express our accolades to those special people who would leave an awful hole in our lives when the they aren't around, BEFORE their funerals!! "No Man is an Island" is so true! ====JACK: The movie was initially regarded as a complete failure, a huge money-loser. And it was said that film showed that Frank Capra had passed his prime as a director. Our daughters went to a recent showing of the movie. Zuzu was there, and they got a chance to hear her tell about what it was like to be one of the actors.
FROM TARMART REV: ...never just an island into one's self...God is always watching, plus a stray cat or two demanding attention!!====JACK: I once conducted a funeral where the funeral director was the only one present....except for God.
FROM ANNE: Yes.
