I am ever so grateful for mine.
Overall family-siblings and extended family is a great love too. Some may drive us crazy at times, but overall-we have someone in relation that just makes us grin from ear to ear. Impacts our lives somewhere.
Some have not as close personal love for animals-but it is still self gratifying. Fills an emptiness with happiness. Still very good for our souls.
We have the very beautiful type of love-our loves for life, companion, best friend forever, good times and bad-God gave us the gifts of spouses. The beauty of a man, tough to defend yet intimate to love, be one with. The love of a woman, intimate, romantic and reliant upon their husbands. That is the most beautiful type of love He created our hearts and minds and bodies to be able to accomplish here on the earth. How so many of us make it thru life, and some thru day to day. I am ever so grateful to Jesus for guiding me to my love today. I always say, "There is no one like you, Christian!" I am even, thru all the hardship and abuse, grateful for my 1st husband-or I never would have had this beautiful young lady, yesterday my baby girl- Tory. I will always be gracious from afar, but in my heart.
Taking it to another level-- people who we don't even know, and they don't know us-yet the way they touched our lives, in a billion different ways- we love them for their impact. Example; My husband and I LOVE the band Lifehouse with Jason Wade as lead vocalist. His life story is gripping, and his words when applied right, can drench you full of tears. He hits the tender parts of the heart, and builds the strong. He, and the band had a HUGE impact on my life while searching for Jesus-even while in overdosing mode. Deeper I listened to sermons-the more his music made sense- lit up God in my heart. And now I have a bond with what they did for me in my life--wed down the aisle to his song "YOU and Me" ... and Everything. That changed my life-I am ever so grateful. Such a connection thru their music and my husband and I.
Here is the most amazing love. The leader of it all. The Creator of US ALL. Jesus Christ. He has had ultimate plans for each of us. Some we alter, take astray for our own free will choices. But He is always guiding us back to His road to get to the right place. So many can love bands-famous people that had some impact on them. But they never meet them. Unfortunate part is there are so many who will almost worship a band way before Jesus even though they don't know them, but they can physically see them. But in reality-the Bible carries way more of what was to come with Jesus in the Old Testament, and amazing endless words from our Lord in the New Testament. More words about and from Jesus, than I ever get to read from Jason. Something that was written so long ago-and is still selling forever copies and changing lives. To trust we have to use that heart we gave to everyone and everything all life-and if you haven't yet--give Jesus your whole heart-positively trusting Him--even for a month as you seek a Bible study-and try not to admit the One who Created you, also changed your heart as you seek Him daily. He is always there to listen, thru all times-does not take vacation. He is Everlasting.
I am grateful to Him for my family, friends, my cat, health I have left, my heart alive, and of course for the Band I saw tonight-Lifehouse. They did have a great impact on my life in music-and bonding love between Christian and I. But I thank Jesus for them--He had these souls planned to make a difference in lives--as He has you as well! When will we start allowing Him to mold us and reach someones life? No time better than now!
I thank Him for you all.... each of you impact my life as well...forever grateful.
In His Love,
Where I Come From- Lifehouse
