✝Have a Blessed Easter Sunday! 🐇 Enjoy these Easter Movies and Specials on TV!

As Christians reflect this Easter, we acknowledge that God loved us so much that He sent His Son, Jesus, to be crucified, buried, and raised on the third day - so that when we repent, we can receive God's forgiveness, be saved from the penalty of our sins and experience eternal life with Him!

UP-TV will be celebrating Easter with religious films and more... including The Greatest Story Ever Told, from 1965, and The Passion of the Christ, which became an instant classic the moment it hit theaters in 2004. I remember watching the first showing at our local theater, in which every seat was filled. To this day, it is still one of the most powerful, impactful films I have ever seen of the life of Jesus! (Please note: due to violence, this movie is not suitable for young children.)

there will be an encore airing:
Wednesday April 24, 2019 at 5pm/4c.

Unfortunately, ABC will once again, NOT be showing the Peanuts Gang in "It's the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown". For those of us who love dear ole Charlie Brown, we'll have to pull out our DVDs again this year - or we can also watch via streaming - see here!

I pray we all take time this Easter - to enjoy family, Easter egg hunts, lovely spring colored dresses and suits (which I enjoy very much!), but much more importantly, in our hearts, may we fully realize and remember on Easter Sunday morning, when the stone that sealed the tomb was rolled away, Jesus was resurrected!

On that day, long ago, Jesus overcame death so that those of us who trust in Him could also overcome death and one day live with Him in Heaven for all eternity.

May the joy of that promise fill us up to overflowing and flow out of us this Easter!

I hope you and your family
have a Joyous, Blessed Easter! Net

Before Easter ~ let's Celebrate a little Christmas on Hallmark this Week with...

🎄It's Christmas Thursdays🎄
on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries

Storyline via Hallmark: Freelance photographer Sam grew up spending summers at her family’s vacation home on Cape Cod, where she and Mike, a local boy, became inseparable friends. The untimely death of Sam’s mother brought those summers to an end for Sam, who couldn’t bear the thought of returning. Thirteen years later, they meet again when she returns to Cape Cod for her father’s Christmas Eve wedding. Their feelings for one another are still strong but their stars may not align: Sam is close to landing a staff position at a Boston newspaper and Mike is on track for a new job in London.

Storyline via Hallmark: As Christmas approaches; a New York event planner is sent to a small town to organize a holiday festival. When she arrives, she finds a high-profile billionaire — who lacks holiday spirit — in the process of selling the charming estate she hoped to use as a venue. Before long, the unlikely pair begins falling for each other. But when complications arise, the couple parts ways and the billionaire moves forward with his plans to sell the estate. On the night before Christmas, the young event planner wishes for a Christmas miracle to save the estate and rekindle her holiday romance.

With Christmas movies airing twice a week - every week - on the Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, it's truly a wonderful feeling - and something I know many of us look forward each week to seeing! And, this week... it's a nice time to re-watch (or see for the first time!) two movies that premiered in 2018!

"Christmas at Pemberley Manor" was the FIRST All NEW Original Christmas Movie to premiere for the 2018 Christmas season in October on the Hallmark Channel AND "Christmas Bells are Ringing" was actually the very LAST All NEW Original Christmas Movie to premiere in December for the 2018 Christmas season on Hallmark Movies & Movies!

Therefore, since "Christmas at Pemberley Manor" was the first, there was a lot more opportunities for viewers to catch an encore airing of this movie during the Christmas season! I found both films to be family friendly and very enjoyable in their own ways.

In "Christmas at Pemberley Manor," it was very nice to see a sweet, simple holiday story, and I loved hearing Jessica Lowndes ("Yes, I Do") sing. Plus, it was cute how they used the Jane Austen Pride & Prejudice theme. In "Christmas Bells are Ringing," I liked the dramatic, intensity of the story and watching Emilie Ullerup ("Chesapeake Shores") find her true passion - and possibly love too!

Wishing You All the Joy of Christmas!
Happy (almost) Easter, too!
(By the way, my Easter post is coming - so stay tuned!)

Blessings! Net

Beginning with 'Love Takes Flight,' the movies will be transitioning on the Hallmark Channel to a 9pm/8c. start time! With the days getting longer and brighter - it's probably a whole lot easier for people to come indoors as it gets dark and watch at that time, especially for those in the central time zone where the premieres begin an hour earlier!

I agree with those who commented under the Love Takes Flight press release - here! I, too, wish the time could remain the same all year, but I know it works best for summertime - to have the movies premiere later. Please share your thoughts in comments below!

Also, for even more previews of 'Countdown to Summer' movies, be sure to watch Jen Lilley and Chris McNally host the preview special this Saturday night at 10pm/9c., following the premiere of 'Easter Under Wraps!'
