I love you

Every now and then I think of this song from my teenage years. It was sung by Larry Norman who was a singer and songwriter. He died in 2008. The day before he died, he knew he was close because he had many heart issues, anyway the day before he died, he wrote these words, "I feel like a prize in a box of Cracker Jacks with God's hand reaching down to pick me up. I have been under medical care for months. My wounds are getting bigger. I have trouble breathing. I am ready to fly home. I won't be here much longer. I can't do anything about it. My heart is too weak. I want to say goodbye to everyone...I want to say I love you. I'd like to push back the darkness with my bravest effort...Goodbye, farewell, we will meet again."

Anyway, he wrote a song that I have thought of often over the years. I might just sing it in church sometime. It can be about you and God or it can be about you and someone that you love. Mostly it can be about anyone, because we can and should love everyone. Here are the lyrics. To listen on youtube click this link:   I love you by Larry Norman

We can be together for now and forever,
I love you, I love you,
Hey can you hear me, I've got to have you near me,
I love you, I love.
I was lonely till you came along,
Now you've got me singing your love-song.
I love you, I love you, I love you.....

Life is a mystery, love is a dancer,
I love you, I love you,
I had a question, you brought the answer,
I love you, I love you,
Oh, but I need you so, I could never let you go.
I was lonely once but then you came along,

I love you, I love you,
And you gave me love so I wrote down this song,
I love you, I love you,
I want to spend my life with you like the angels on high,
I love you, I love you,
You're the Morning Star, You're the Son in My Sky,
I love you, I love you......

Donna Eaton, I love you.  Tim Cristenson, I love you.  Jennifer Dancy, I love you.  Steve Goodwin, I love you.  David Harris, I love you.  And to 10,000 other people, I love you.  I truly want to be a person that loves everyone. Even those that on first look, I'm not sure that I like. God is love and we all should aspire to love people.

I love you.

It's a beautiful day in God's world be sure to see the good.
