Love Me, For Me...

Before I begin today's entry, I would like to say that had my parents been still alive, today would have been their wedding anniversary.  No point in wishing them Happy Anniversary, but it was on my mind.

If you read my day-before-yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, you'll know that I wrote about love, being a many splendored thing.  And, about how life can be lonely, when there is no love in your life.

But, as I mentioned at the end of that entry, the love that means the most to me, is God's love.

Of course, without it, there would be no love in my life.  Oh, I am not saying that family doesn't love me, for I am sure there is some love, there. 

However, the truth is, that many of us, go through life, experiencing trial after trial, with not much love, to balance out the celebration of life.

J.J. Heller, sings a song that describes what I am saying, called Who Will Love Me For Me:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uWKkdgyJ_NI

Who Will Love Me For Me (aka:  Love me)

Songwriters: DANIEL ASH, KEVIN HASKINS, DAVID J. HASKINS

He cries in the corner where nobody sees
He’s the kid with the story no one would believe
He prays every night, “Dear God won’t you please
Could you send someone here who will love me?”

Who will love me for me
Not for what I have done or what I will become
Who will love me for me
‘Cause nobody has shown me what love
What love really means

Her office is shrinking a little each day
She’s the woman whose husband has run away
She’ll go to the gym after working today
Maybe if she was thinner
Then he would’ve stayed
And she says…

Who will love me for me?
Not for what I have done or what I will become
Who will love me for me?
‘Cause nobody has shown me what love, what love really means

He’s waiting to die as he sits all alone
He’s a man in a cell who regrets what he’s done
He utters a cry from the depths of his soul
“Oh Lord, forgive me, I want to go home”

Then he heard a voice somewhere deep inside
And it said
“I know you’ve murdered and I know you’ve lied
I have watched you suffer all of your life
And now that you’ll listen, I’ll tell you that I...”

I will love you for you
Not for what you have done or what you will become
I will love you for you
I will give you the love
The love that you never knew;

...Love you for you
Not for what you have done or what you will become
I will love you for you
I will give you the love
The love that you never knew


You may have heard me mention this song in the past, but on Wednesday, I sang this, when I spoke and sang at my church's 50+ group luncheon.

As you might have guessed, there is still more for me to say.  So, I ask for your patience. 


Until next time...
