Word Filled Wednesday

My family has lived at this address for three and a half years yet we hardly know our neighbors.  We do occasionally talk to the sweet lady next door and many of the neighborhood kids make their way to our backyard on nice days.  But we really do not know anyone.  Other than the lady and kids I've already mentioned, I don't even know our neighbors names!  We wave as we drive by, but that is the extent of our relationship.  And I never even thought about it until recently.

"'Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?'  Jesus replied, 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.  This is the first and greatest commandment.  And the second is like it: Love your neighbor
as yourself.  All the Law and the Prophets hang on these
two commandments.'"
Matthew 22:36-40

Review and giveaway:

My family loves movies.  These days you have to be very careful of what you watch.  Growing up the type of movies that were rated "R" are now rate rated "PG-13."  Even "PG" movies you have to be very careful about.  So when I come across a movie that is clean and uplifting, I am thrilled to pass it on!

A Mile in His Shoes is a wonderful movie about a talented and autistic young man who is being sheltered by his family, and a baseball coach looking for a new pitcher.  When the two meet, everyone's lives are changed.  This is definitely a must see.

To win this DVD all you have to do is leave a comment on today and tomorrow's blog post .  For an extra entry share the giveaway on Facebook and/or Twitter and come back and leave separate comment telling me you shared.  The winner will be announced on Friday.

  1. You are so right about dvd's, I like to have a few here for my grandchildren when they visit. I check them out of the library and view them before they see it and I have taken several back without even finishing it.
    That sounds like a dvd that I could happily allow them to watch.
    Thank you for the chance.
    Hugs, Cindy

  2. We have slowly been getting to know our neighbors by name but it is not easy. Most of them we know by sight but only four by name.

    That movie sounds great!!

  3. Oh now this one I would love to win! I am all about movies or books where there are kids or adults with special needs (as you can imagine!)

  4. Nice giveaway. I've never heard of this movie. Sounds good. Intentional is a great word! I joined Stephanie at UpLifting words. She's doing the one word meme. You should join in :) Have a wonderful day!

  7. It is sad how we don't see our neighbors much. Your picture is pretty.

  8. Jenifer, it's interesting we didn't know our neighbors very well until about 8 years ago a huge hurricane hit our area and we were without power and water for close to a week. It took crisis for our neighbors to come together!

  9. Ooh, an uplifting movie AND it's about baseball? Definitely sounds like a must-see. Thanks for telling us about it. Have a wonderfully intentional day ;-)
