That's All...

Every now and then, I let you know here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), that a song is on my heart and mind.

Usually, the music resonates throughout me, over and over.  Normally, it is playing inside me, when I wake up.

Recently, I found it seemed to work differently, within me.

One evening, I was so exhausted I could hardly stay awake.  In fact, I was so tired, that I drifted off to sleep over and over.  And, never got up and out of my recliner chair in my living room, to go to bed.

It was about midnight, when I managed to do so.

While laying in bed, I prayed.  Afterwards, I relaxed and thought I would drift off to sleep.  But, didn't.

Instead, music began inside me.

It was a song recorded by Frank Sinatra entitled, That's All.  Here is a link to the song, so you can listen and/or sing along:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SINfqtCq0lY.  The lyrics are below.

That's All

I can only give you love that lasts forever
And the promise to be near each time you call
And the only heart I own, for you and you alone,
That's all, that's all.

 I can only give you country walks in Springtime
And a hand to hold when leaves begin to fall
And a love whose burning light will warm the winter night,
That's all, that's all.

There are those I am sure who have told you
They would give you the world for a toy.
All I have are these arms to enfold you and a love time can never destroy.

If you're wond'ring what I'm asking in return, dear,
You'll be glad to know that my demands are small.
Say it's me that you'll adore for now and ever more,
That's all, that's all.

Why this song was resonating inside me, I have no idea.  But, it was.

In fact, I could not get to sleep, because it seemed to play over and over, inside me.

Eventually, I got up.  I came to the computer, and began writing this LwL entry.

Looking at the lyrics, and thinking about them, made me think of God, once again.

I thought about the love He has for me.  And, for you.

God is not a genie in a bottle.

He will not give to us everything we desire.  But, He promised to supply all our needs.

Like what the lyrics say near the end of this song, He doesn't ask much from us, in return for the love He shows us.

He wants us to adore Him, much like the lyrics say.  Of course, adoration is important.  Our love for Him, is of greatest importance in our lives.

Much like we read, in Luke 10:27, "And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself."

Our greatest love in our lives, needs to be of God.  For He has provided everything, for us.

For this, I will always praise Him... and adore/love Him.

Until next time...
