We have so enjoyed watching Season 1 and now we are in the middle of Season 2 of Little House on the Prairie. I think I pretty much cry through every episode. I love the relationships, the simple living (as in uncluttered because it certainly isn't easy!), the morals, the realness. It's just wholesome viewing for our family. It's so hard to find shows or movies that we can all watch together, and this is definitely one of them. All of my kids love it and my husband and I smile, wink, and get teary as we watch Ma and Pa weather the joys and the storms of raising a family.
And Michael Landon Jr. is the director for these wonderful movies based on the book series by Janette Oke. I read these when I was in high school and loved them so much. To now watch them on DVD is a treasure and is just wonderful and heart-warming. My husband and I put the whole series in our Netflix queue and he and I spent the early part of this summer watching each one in the evening after the children were in bed...we will definitely be buying these. Check them out!
Thank you Lord for even using things like movies or TV shows to tap into our hearts and show us greater realities about You. You speak in creative and powerful ways...help me to look and listen for You in all that I watch and view.
