I've got a whole mind full of things to blog about, but not enough wits about me to put any of those thoughts together into meaningful sentences, let alone a whole blog post, so I'm going to keep it short and sweet tonight. Forgive me, for I've just spent the last almost hour and a half at the sink doing dishes. Seriously. That's what happens when I let my routines go by the wayside, and then I turn up sick on the day I plan to catch up. Things do not go well around here if I don't stick to my routines. Lesson learned.
I'd like to get back to my idea of sharing song lyrics that mean a lot to me, so I'm sliding this one in here on a Sunday instead of Saturday. Who really cares anyway? :) This is actually an entire chorus from a country song called "Love Like Crazy" by Lee Brice that's currently in heavy rotation. Bear with me here if you're not a country fan because this chorus is absolutely beautiful.
Here's a little background on what happens in the song before the chorus starts for those who haven't heard it. There's a couple who've been together for 58 years (I can only wish) and this chorus is the man's response to how they've managed to stay together that long. He says:
Be a best friend, tell the truth
And overuse I love you
Go to work, do your best
Don't outsmart your common sense
Never let your prayin' knees get lazy
And love like crazy
I am totally in love with this song. It reminds me every time I hear it to be sweet to my husband and always remind him how much I love him, even when I think he'll tire of hearing it. Because he won't. Ever. He'll never tire of hearing how I love and adore him any more than I'll ever tire of hearing how much he loves and adores me. That's what true love's all about. It's a magical codependency like I've never experienced, until I became a mom.
There I go getting all sappy on you. Sorry, but the emotion I feel when I hear this song is mostly why I LOVE music so much. It touches your heart and your soul, and when it's done well, it can make you a better person.
As a quick aside, while I am typing this, I can hear "Oh How I Love Jesus" softly emanating from my son's room. This is our hope and prayer for him. I pray that one day, when he's grown, he will love this song as much as I do and will sing it with pure conviction and a love of Jesus realized.
