Everyone dreams about falling in love
Visions of rainbows and sunshine above
But when my rainbows have faded and sunshine is gone
I was still searching for a love of my own.
The words are from a song titled, "Love Of My Own."
With the love month starting today some are thinking about what to get for their love, whoever that might be. After being married 59 years when my husband ask me what I want and I usually tell him nothing. I am one of those hard to buy for women. I don't want flowers because they just die slowly. I don't want candy because I am over weight. I have no needs to be met and through the years I have found those things you can hold in my hands do not make me feel loved. Give me a man who loves God and depends on Him to love me and I am a content women of God.
Rest of song.
Then one day a stranger came, and He called out my name.
And ever since His gentle touch, I have not been the same
He replaced all the dreams and chasing rainbows.
With His joy on my heart and a love or my own
And since I met Jesus, I know what love really is
And since I met Jesus there been no feeling like this
With His joy in my heart and a love of my own.
I am in constant learning how to live this earthly life while walking with a love of my own. This love that has captured me and won my heart makes it possible to love others better, to show grace when needed. It's not a frail love that resides in my heart, it never quits, never disappoint me. That love keeps me in love with my valentine, my husband and loving myself and others.
This love is for everyone, and it cost us nothing. It's better than chocolate for it never melts or spoils. It never dies like flowers. It can help an earthy love be at peace.
"For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." (NIV)
