‘A Christmas Tree Miracle’ ~ CFDb Movie Review
For the George family – accustomed to the luxuries of a privileged suburban life – Christmas has become a season of taking rather than giving. With dad preoccupied with work, mom on edge and self-involved teens, Nick and Natalie, fixated on their ever-growing wish lists, the youngest is the only one with any true Christmas spirit.
When their dad loses his job just before the holidays, the family ignores the severity of the situation and continues to live above their means. When the consequences catch up with them, they are left with nothing and nowhere to turn. Taken in by an eccentric Christmas tree farmer, the family learns that miracles can come true… if you believe! A warm-hearted tale reminding us that the best gifts are the simple ones… all year long.
I’m sure that a LOT of people can relate to this statement “Christmas should be a time of giving – I have nothing left to give.” That is really what this movie is all about. Loss and Struggles and Blessings. Here are some things that spoke to me from this film:
- Our distractions really affect the children. One scene in particular really portrays this. (Imagine how God must feel when we are distracted in church) Heartbreaking!
- How many opportunities have we missed because we’ve been distracted?
- If you’ve lost a job, what are you doing to find one? Are you still living beyond you means? Are you searching for only jobs that you WANT?
- Some great practical advice from his dad, even though it was unwanted. A gift won’t really help, what’s needed is a lifestyle change.
- How a little thoughtful moment led to a real blessing when it was really needed…3 times. Twice for the dad and once for the son.
There were some surprises in this film and the little girl was just fantastic and really made the film for me.
