Love Lifted Me! :)

I am participating in two different things this month.  National Blog Post Month, which is posting every day in November and Blogging101 which gives me prompts each day to expand on.  Today: Is titled “By Heart” You’re asked to recite a poem (or song lyrics) from memory — what’s the first one that comes to mind? Does it have a special meaning, or is there another reason it has stayed, intact, in your mind?

It is funny (Coincidence or God’s Leading?) that they would ask us to do this, because I was just thinking a couple of days ago that I would work this song in to my post.  I was thinking on a Sunday (God’s day), I have just moved it up a couple days! 🙂  I think of this song often because it was my Mom’s favorite song.  Another link  to this task (God’s Leading) is I was reading this morning, before I knew what our assignment was for today.  It was another’s blog who wrote a letter to her mom that had passed. “Dear Mom”  It really touched my heart and made me again think of my mom.  Now this assignment…..

This blog post from me will be my song lyrics “By Heart”,  from “My Heart!” and Heaven! 🙂

My Mom was the Best Mom anyone could ever ask for.  I am not sure how she taught us respect because we just respected her!  No beatings, no yelling, no stand in the corner, no sit on the couch.  We just knew in our hearts that we HAD Better toe the mark! Ha Ha  Mom suffered from liver cancer for 5 years and went to be with our Lord and Saviour in Heaven at the early age of 63.  That was 26 years ago this past September.  I think of her every day, she left me and my siblings with wonderful memories, we loved her very much.  In fact, she was so much a part of our life, that I feel God took her away from us a little at a time. Stopped bowling with us, but was still there.  Stopped going everywhere with us, but she was still there. At the end, He gave us all new jobs that took our focus and attention so she could slip into eternity peacefully and know that we were all OK.  Makes me cry even all these years later.  Anyway, to her song, and now my song

“Love Lifted Me”

Verse 1: I was sinking deep in sin, far from the peaceful shore.  Very deeply Stained within, sinking to rise no more.  But the Master of the sea, heard my despairing cry.  From the waters lifted me, now SAFE am I!  Love Lifted Me!

Refrain: Love Lifted Me!  Love Lifted Me! When nothing else could help, Love Lifted Me!

Verse 2: All my heart to Him I give, ever to Him I’ll Cling. In His Blessed presence live, ever His praises sing.  Love so mighty and so true, merits my soul’s best songs, Faithful, loving service too, to Him belongs.

Refrain: Love Lifted Me!  Love Lifted Me! When nothing else could help, Love Lifted Me!

Souls in danger look above, Jesus completely saves.  He will lift you by His love, out of the angry waves.  He’s the Master of the sea, billows His will obey, He your Savior wants to be, be saved today!

Refrain: Love Lifted Me!  Love Lifted Me! When nothing else could help, Love Lifted Me!

As I think of this song and the types of Love that Lift us, I think of God’s Love for us, For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, That whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16  I think of Jesus’ Love for us,  But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.  Romans 5:8  I think of my husband’s love, I think of my parents Love for us and Love of offspring 🙂  Each type of Love is Special and unique and Lifts me in different ways.

When we are working a vending booth or at a party, we have Mothers and Grandmothers mention their wish to buy self defense products for their kids and grandkids. I say Please think of yourself as well.  Remember, you are important to your kids and grandkids. I am sure they want you protected as much as you want to protect them.

Be Safe, Love Much, and Be Stunningly Protected,

Janie 🙂
