There are a lot of songs that I really love a lot but…this has to be one of my favorite of all time songs. Every time I hear it, I have to pause because it gives me goose bumps. The song is by Lionel Richie & The Commodores and it is called “Jesus is Love”. It is a very uplifting song and it says so much. I’ll also leave you with the bible verse of the day that I got in my inbox:
2 Corinthians 1:3-4
New International Version
[ Praise to the God of All Comfort ] Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.
Check out this poignant video. I hope you will watch it all of the way through. It’s amazing that everything you see, isn’t necessarily what you see. Too often we focus on the wrong thing. You’ll have to watch the video for yourself because that is all I’m giving you on this one.
Many years ago I was in the process of writing a poem for my mom for Mother’s Day and I messed around and heard this song. The song said everything that I really wanted to say without me writing a word. As much as I continued to try to write my poem, these words continued to bounce around in my heart and my head. Truthfully I got mad at first because I could not create the poem that I wanted to write. Then, I decided to embrace the beauty of this song and today I’m dedicating this song to my mom and to all of the wonderful mothers out there (including my 2 sisters who sometimes think that they are my mom… lol). As much as I love the words in this song, there are so many more words that can be said about the love that my mom has administered… over the years. Her particular brand of love need to be packaged and shipped around the world (yes, she’s that AWESOME). I guess that’s why God gave her to me!!!
