The letters weren't the only thing being held hostage in this film, and no one demonstrated that better that Dudley Curly and Oliver O'Toole. Their literal and theoretical hostage situations remind us what happens when we let fear rule the day, and implore us to remember that at our core we are made of so much more.
Like most things in life, our gardens don't grow in our timing, and no one knows that better than Shane and Oliver, whose efforts to tend their relational garden haven't always come up rosie. Yet even through their struggles, Shane and Oliver have taught us the value of constantly tending to our relationships so that when the time comes, they're ready to bloom, too.
Sometimes cake isn't just cake, and that was never more obvious than when Oliver hesitated to take a bite of his. Cake doubles as a deep reflection on Oliver's disposition, drawing a connection between the sweet treat and the relationship Oliver longs to have with Shane, but can't get himself to try as a result of his own insecurities.
Much POstable Love,
