Happily Ever After

I like Hallmark movies. My husband (among others) makes fun of me and the movies, telling me who wants to watch a movie where you know exactly how it’s going to turn out? He says you only need to record one movie as they are all the same. I let it run off my back because no matter what he says, I like happy endings. Maybe I read too many fairy tales as a child (the happy ones, not the scary ones). 

Unfortunately, in real life, not many get a happy ending. I don’t have to tell you about that. Even men who don’t like chick flicks want happy endings, whether or not they admit it. We all want to be loved, we all want the good things in life and we all want everyone we love to be happy and healthy. Happy endings are possible but not usually in this life and if there is one, it always comes with pain. 

Jesus’ life didn’t have a happy ending, at least from the disciples’ point of view. They and all of his followers were expecting a lot more than an illegal trial, a beating and a crucifixion. They also weren’t expecting the happy ending or the way it happened: resurrection! The resurrection is the biggest and best happy ending ever and because Jesus came back from the dead, we can also have our happy endings. As Paul said, we have been crucified with Christ and we have also been resurrected with him – given new life now and forever. That’s a happy ending even a non-fan of chick flicks can get into.

  1. Thank you, Tammy! I also watch Hallmark Movies with my wife. She enjoys the romantic relationships and displays of affection. She will occasionally watch Action movies (my favorite) with me. Of course our Real Life is in Christ!

  2. Thank you for Happily Ever After.
    I’ve been looking for a happy ending for the last year and a half.
    Instead I seem to find more frustration than happy.
    You give food for thought.
