Love, Love, Love
If not for love, I have long went down the hill. Not the “fun down the hill we roll” kind but more of the “down the hill cause I lost it” kind.
Heaven poured out many blessings and one of the most precious one is love. We can gain all the riches of the world but without love, we will always feel empty. That void will never be filled by glitter and limelight. At the end of the day, when we are all alone and day turns to night, that emptiness sounds like a gong that keeps us restless.
I was at the park a few days ago while my wife was at a salon. I had the perfect me time. A time to think, reflect, appreciate what’s around me and within me. I got to listen to my Pandora’s 2012 Top Christian Radio and truly hear the words. It felt really good. For a moment, time was irrelevant.
As I listened to Holly Starr’s Don’t Have love, I am reminded of what’s important in my life. The song goes something like this, “You can have money and cool friends but it’s never enough if you don’t have love. You can have fast cars, a mansion and everyone’s attention but it’s never enough if you don’t have love.” The words hit straight to my heart. From personal events in my past, I couldn’t agree more.
Love comes in many forms, expressed in different ways and comes from various sources. Mines comes from three basic sources: God, family and friends. From the day I was born till today, love was and is the fuel of it all. I know that even at end of this lifetime, love will and alway be the pure thing I will remember and be remembered.
So yes, all we need is love. It’s not just an inspiration of the many songs and poetry. It is real. It is life pulsating to every beat of our heart. It is what keeps us feeling alive. Really alive!
