The lord works in mysterious ways. In the new straight-to-DVD movie, Christmas Miracle, audiences see just how mysterious the good lord’s ways are. In this heartfelt holiday drama, a group of people are brought together in an old church thanks to a snowstorm. The catch with the group being brought together is that save for one person, everyone else that was brought together was either married or on the verge of a divorce. The one lone individual who was single admits a painful secret late in the movie as to why he is alone. Each couple at the church is at a different stage of its marriage. As a result of this, each couple learns some very valuable lessons about the importance of marriage, and how to make marriages work. This isn’t like those movies from Sherwood Studios. It’s nowhere near as preachy as those movies. Rather it sends those very important messages while being entertaining at the same time.
The story in Christmas Miracle is touching and heartwarming. Being that it’s a straight-to-DVD release, it’s a good story for any family, especially during the holidays. Despite the old song, the holidays aren’t exactly the most wonderful time of the year. The holidays are the most stressful time of the year. Keeping that in mind, what this movie does is it serves as a reminder to families to remember what is most important, especially at this time of year. What’s most important is family. This movie does a very good job of reminding its audiences of this and in an original fashion, too. Because of its Christian overtones, it’s equally fitting for any church group to view during the holidays.
Viewers will especially appreciate the movie after watching the movie’s bonus making of featurette. The cast and director explain in more depth that not only is there one message of family, but a message that it’s never too late for second chances. Each couple learns this lesson, as does the former reverend. Not only does this message bring new life to each couple’s life but to that of the reverend, and even the old abandoned church. It all comes together for an original holiday movie that the whole family will appreciate. It can be picked up in store or even ordered online now for anyone starting to plan their holiday celebrations.
