There’s no mercy in a live wire
No rest at all in freedom
Choices we are givin
It’s no choice at all
The proof is in the fire
You touch before it moves away – yeah
But you must always know
How long to stay and when to go
Must be I’m channeling Bradley Allen because I’ve got a song stuck in my head this morning. I woke up with the lyrics playing in my silly blonde brain. It’s a sad one about letting go. Don’t read into it too much. It’s just a good song. It makes this tender heart hurt whenever I hear it. Natalie Maines sure can cry a good lyric. It’s such an easy song to sing, but the words cut to the bone.
Watch the video, think of lost love, or love that hurts and then let it fly away. Where it can’t hurt you anymore. Look at your life too and realize how truly wonderful it is. How you get to wake up in the morning in a warm bed, go to a job that may suck but at least you’re working. See the person laying next to you and know they’re the one. That you have never, ever been loved more thoroughly and you never will be loved so well again. Smile at the thought of your children flourishing. Sigh and know that the Lord has truly blessed your life.
If you’re not with the right one, then change it somehow. I talked two friends into setting up profiles on dating websites, because you know I’m so well versed in 21st century dating techniques. I think they’ve both found the right ones, finally. I’ve the feeling I’ll be going to a wedding for one of them next summer. She has found the “one”. He speaks the right love language. Gives her words. What she craves. But he also gives her love, unconditionally. Something she has been needing for so long.
Enjoy this beautiful day. Revel in it. It’s raining here in West Virginia, but as you know rain is one of my favorites. Maybe I’ll go out and play in a puddle..
I’m going to let him fly…..Yeah.
