One Kiss...

In yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I discussed The Beatles!  And, how memories came to mind.

This may be one (1) reason I've been reflecting upon my life.  Looking back.

Or, it may be partially due to the fact that I have had a song on my mind over the past few days. 

It's called One Kiss; here is a  LINK to hear it on a Youtube link.  It's a song from an operetta entitled, The New Moon; here's a LINK to read about it.  Below are the lyrics.

One Kiss
(Jeanette MacDonald sings prior to the beginning of the song)

One kiss, one man to save it for
One love for him alone
One word, one vow, and nothing more
To tell him I'm his own
One magic night within his arms
With passion's flower unfurled
And all my life I'll love only one man
And no other man in the world

One kiss, one man to save it for
One love for him alone
One word, one vow, and nothing more
To tell him I'm his own
One magic night within his arms
With passion's flower unfurled
And all my life I'll love only one man
And no other man in the world


You see, many years ago, when I was young, I had planned to sing one season with the Etobicoke Light Opera group, in the Toronto, Ontario area.  And, the song One Kiss, was one of the songs that a soloist was singing.

Please know that I was not the soloist singing the song. 

As I've mentioned in the past, I had terrible stage fright.  Whenever I sang when I thought I was alone, and found out someone was listening, I would stop singing.  I would just freeze up.

After participating on a regular basis with the group to be able to be on stage, I thought I'd be ready to do so.  But, it didn't work out that way.

I got sick with a respiratory infection, and wasn't able to sing during the performances that had been planned.  Sigh...

In any case, I always loved that song.

Thinking about it, and while singing it at home, my mind thought about Jesus.  About how much I love Him.

And, about how He wants us to love others.

Just as He told us in John 13:34, "A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another."

Wow!  It amazes me how many people haven't even a clue about this verse.  Or if they do, ignore it.

Unfortunately, we're living in a world where people do not always have love towards one another.  Even some people who consider themselves to be Christians.

No matter what, the fact remains.  We need to show love to others.


Until next time...
