13. FINAL WORDS – A JOURNEY TO 'CHRISTMAS LODGE'.
In this week's FINAL WORDS, I'd like to share a bit about a holiday movie that, for whatever reason, seems to have become one of my touching holiday favourites.
Perhaps part of its endearing charm is that it will likely never considered an 'award winner', and when I say this, I actually mean this as a compliment, because to be honest, I have not been particularly impressed with what are most likely cabal-inspired movies that win awards to further brainwash people.
It has what I have come to love and appreciate in a meaningful movie: simple and yet profoundly meaningful messages; a light touch of romance, some nature and natural beauty, an acknowledgment of Divine Creator as speaking to us through our planet and through the synchronicities of events that happen to us. It carries the message of gratitude and of celebration of all that is truly meaningful, without any commercialism. Yes, there are some occasional references of God in a religious context. If one is willing to read between the lines a bit with a few of the religious references, one may be able to interpret a higher message of Divine Creator, of Oneness and the importance of service to humanity and our planet and more that extend beyond the Christian interpretations.
This little gem is called 'Christmas Lodge' and was released in October of 2011.
It is a story of Mary Tobin, a nature-girl at heart who is working in the big city. Her job is to coordinate funding for projects so historical buildings can be preserved in the city. Although she is good at what she does, her heart longs to be in nature. She takes her city-loving boyfriend on a trip to the mountains, and the polarity of their characters is clearly evident as he has no desire to be in nature.
While hiking, they come across a young girl in distress and help her back to her place, where Mary discovers is an old lodge where she and her family used to spend so many Christmas holidays when she was young. The girls father, Jack Rand arrives home and Jack and Mary begin the journey of reminiscing about the lodge and the history of their families.
Jack explains to Mary that the lodge is so run down that it now out his control and he just cannot possibly restore it to its former lustre and glory.
Mary and her boyfriend return to the city, and they break up shortly after, as he realizes that they are just too different to stay together.
Another part of the story is the relation Mary has with her aging grandfather who is quite ill. She was one of the few grandchildren who actually took the time to listen to him, and she benefitted from the wisdom and love he shared with Mary about being in nature, the love they shared for nature together when she was alive, and experiencing the Divine Creator and his late wife in the forests around Christmas Lodge after his wife passed on.
Heartbroken and fearful of being alone, Mary decides to try to save Christmas Lodge, and is motivated by the strong hope that she can bring her grandfather to the Lodge one more time with the family, something her father says will never happen. Mary asks her father, who inherited the construction company started by her grandfather if he would survey the Lodge and come up with a cost estimate that she could present to her company to try to restore the Lodge.
The survey results in an estimate that is almost two million dollars. She applies for the grants but only gets about half. While talking to her father, her grandfather overhears her distress, and he coaxes his son to put off all his other jobs, and go and help the Rand family. One of the scenes that makes my eyes water up a bit is to see Mary's reaction when Grandfather Tobin says he will pay the difference to get the project done. In the words of Grandfather Tobin, Christmas Lodge had given so much to their family, that it was now time to give back, and it would become his legacy so Grandpa Tobin agrees to pay for the family construction team to go and restore the Lodge.
Over the months of work, Jack and Mary get closer, and Jack's daughter is pushing him to get closer as she has grown really fond of Mary.
Jack finally gets the courage to express his interest, and she resists because she is fearful of her history with men, but also of hurting Charlene, Jack's daughter. Jack's charm finally breaks her barrier and she finally admits she is tired being fearful.
Charlene is anxious to meet Grandfather Tobin, but his health takes a downturn with a stroke before the US Thanksgiving holiday. The Thanksgiving holiday sees Jack and Charlene coming to visit the Tobin family, and we see the bond that truly exists between these two families, but also the bond between Jack, Charlene and Mary.
As a result of her work on this project Mary's boss announces that the company is opening a branch office in the mountains to look after projects outside of the city, and Mary is offered the job to head up this office, which she jumps at to be closer to nature, to the mountains, but secretly to be close to Jack and Charlene whom she has begun to fall in love with, although she is not quite ready to admit that to herself.
The movie ends with the renovations being completed in time for Christmas and the two families are at the Lodge for the turning on of the lights. I won't reveal how the story ends..that is for you to discover. Maybe, just maybe the touching messages contained in this little gem will resonate with you and your family this holiday season.
Things in your life may not be working out the way you planned, but as you begin to listen to what your heart is telling you to do, or where it is guiding you to be, perhaps those doors begin to open up in ways that you never dreamed were possible! Sometimes it is the fear of the unknown, and sometimes it is the need to follow your truth, even when faced with challenge and opposition. In honouring one's own truth, the world begins to manifest in a different vibration, and Mary Tobin found her dreams manifesting
Next week's newscast will be coming from Uruguay, so next week will take me away from the traditions and customs I particularly love of this season in a northern climate. I'd like to close this week with two songs from this movie. The artist who played the role of Mary Tobin's sister Kathy, Victoria Banks is also the artist who sang these two songs. I contacted Victoria who has graciously and kindly given me permission to share these two songs. As you listen to this music, hold the focus of the energies of this holiday season, and all you want it to be, not only for yourselves but also for humanity and our planet. We are serving a larger family, not only a planetary family but also a galactic family and celestial family.
The first song is 'The Greatest Gift', and captures the essence of what Mary Tobin experiences at the end of the movie and what lies in the hearts of many who understand the deeper, heart-oriented meaning of this season.
The second song is 'You Believe In Angels', a song that I think will resonate with many who are courageously walking a path of truth and Light at this time.
I am now going to start posting the FINAL WORDS transcript in the show summaries. Links and the lyrics to the song will also appear.
Thank you again Victoria for your Light and your service! Thank you and blessings to the cast and crew of 'Christmas Lodge'. Here is Victoria Banks: The Greatest Gift and You Believe In Angels.
THE GREATEST GIFT – VICTORIA BANKS
I DON'T NEED THE MUSIC
I DON'T NEED THE LIGHTS
OR THE PRESENTS PILED UP UNDERNEATH THE TREE
ALL I NEED IS YOU HERE
AND I'LL BE SATISFIED
BABY THAT'S WHAT CHRISTMAS IS TO ME
'CAUSE THE GREATEST GIFT I KNOW
IT'S NOT WRAPPED IN PAPER, IT'S NOT TIED UP WITH A BOW
OF ALL MY DREAMS COME TRUE
THE GREATEST GIFT IS YOU
YOU DON'T HAVE TO BUY ME
THINGS THAT I DON'T NEED
YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE TO SPEND ONE DIME
WHEN YOU'RE HERE BESIDE ME
MY WHOLE LIFE'S COMPLETE
BABY ALL I ASK FOR IS YOUR SMILE
CHORUS (REPEAT 2X)
YOU BELIEVE IN ANGELS – VICTORIA BANKS
YOU DREAM IN TECHNICOLOUR
YOU DANCE TO A DIFFERENT DRUMMER
YOU ALWAYS HAVE, YOU ALWAYS WILL
THE WORLD DOESN'T UNDERSTAND YOU
BUT DON'T YOU LET THAT BEND YOU
DON'T LET IT CHANGE THE WAY YOU FEEL
CAUSE WHEN IT'S ALL BEEN SAID AND DONE
WHO'S TO SAY WHAT'S RIGHT OR WRONG
CAUSE YOU BELIEVE IN ANGELS
AND IN LISTENING TO YOUR HEART
AND THE POWER OF CONVICTION
AND IN BEING WHO YOU ARE
AND YOU BELIEVE IN MAKING WISHES
CAUSE WISHES DO COME TRUE
YOU BELIEVE IN ANGELS
AND I BELIEVE IN YOU
SOME PEOPLE COMPROMISE
AFRAID TO RISK THEIR PRIDE
THEY JUST PUT THEIR DREAMS AWAY
BUT YOU, YOU TAKE YOUR CHANCES
AND YOU SEARCH FOR ANSWERS
YOU CLOSE YOUR EYES AND GO ON FAITH
SOMETIMES YOU FALL, SOMETIMES YOU FLY
BUT YOU'RE NOT AFRAID TO TRY
