Love Does Everything

Last night I watched the film, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason. Although I've seen it twice before, I saw something I haven't seen before.

In the first instalment called Bridget Jones's Diary, Bridget is looking for love which she finds in Mark Darcy. In "The Edge of Reason" after Bridget and Mark have been going out for only a short while they start having problems and they split up. Bridget ends up working with her ex-boyfriend Daniel and they are both sent to Thailand to cover a story. Although things really heat up between them, they don't sleep together.

While packing to go home, Bridget's friend Shazzer, who has accompanied her to Thailand, asks her to carry a statue that a friend has given her in her suitcase. The statue turns out to have drugs inside. Bridget is arrested for drug trafficking and is told that unless they find the man who gave Shazzer the statue, she will be in jail for a long time.

In prison, Bridget gets a visit from Mark Darcy who has a photo of a young man whom Bridget identifies as the man who had given Shazzer the statue. Mark tells her she will be released shortly. Mark is very aloof towards Bridget and tells Bridget he's only the messenger and doing what he's been asked to do. Bridget believes Mark no longer loves her.

When Bridget returns home, her friends tell her how hard Mark has been working to get her released. He had in fact done everything: gone to Thailand to investigate and catch the real drug trafficker, communicated with the government and other agencies to catch the criminal and arranged for Bridget to be released. Bridget realises that Mark must really love her if he's done all that for her. Bridget and Mark are reunited in love.

Mark represents Divine Love that does the work of caring, creating, freeing, healing, inspiring, protecting, providing, sustaining, revealing and so much more. All I need to do is acknowledge Love's presence in all things, trust in Love and let Love do whatever is necessary.

I trust in Love.
