Free Love ~ Read, Listen, Feel, Embrace and SHARE!

On November 18th I posted a YouTube link to the video/song  LOVE by Jaeson Ma. I accidentally downloaded this song onto my phone while looking for some Bruno Mars tunes. Among my many neurotic issues, I’m like, the world’s worst passenger in a vehicle. My anxieties are somewhat paralyzing, where a simple 20-25 minute drive to Wal-Mart has had me in tears feeling like my heart is being crushed in a vice and the pain is so maddening my hysterical sobs are the only thing holding back the shriek about to burst from my lungs. I’m sure many of you know exactly what I’m talking about, while others are perhaps just realizing how crippling Anxiety Disorders can actually be. They suck! So in the car I put headphones on, close my eyes and tune out my actual surroundings which are replaced by my “Safe Zone” so-to-speak until we get to where ever we are going. This way I don’t freak out and/or distract the driver, usually my poor husband Clint, with my paranoid behavior. 😉

The song, when I happened to hear it the first time, brought tears to my eyes. Someone else saw and felt what I did. This time of year last year I fell into a deep depression that I am still struggling with over a year later. Clint gets frustrated, like any loving mate would, because they have me on all these antidepressants and anti-anxiety meds and yet I’m still depressed. And I really do understand his frustration; imagine mine. But, life was still going on, and more bad things were going on and obviously it was more than the meds alone could manage too. This time of year is missing that special something that always made it so magical when I was little. And it’s not the whole Santa Claus thing; if you’ve read ‘My Theory of Christmas‘ then you know I believe. But this, I’ve felt it fading for several years now and thought it was simply Faith. Nope, it’s LOVE.  

So this time, I’m posting the lyrics along with the video in the hopes that the powerful words will touch others as they have me and “…put a little love in your heart!”

Now Hollywood wants to make you think they know what love is.
But I’m a tell you what true love is.
Love is not what you see in the movies.
It’s not the ecstasy, it’s not what you see in that scene
you know what I mean? I’m telling you right now, true love is sacrifice.
Love is thinking about others before you think about yourself
Love is selfless not selfish. Love is God and God is love.
Love is when you lay down your life for another
Whether for your brother, your mother, your father or your sister
Its even laying down your life for your enemies,
That’s unthinkable, but think about that
Love is true
Think.

Chorus
I’ll put you in front of me
So everybody can see
My love, this is my love
I know that I’ll be alright
As long as you are my guide
My love, this is my love

Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast
It is not proud. Love is not rude, it is not self-seeking
It is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs
You see love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, it always perseveres
Love never fails. Love is everlasting
Its eternal, it goes on and on, it goes beyond time
Love is the only thing that will last when you die
But ask the question why? Do you have love?

Chorus
I’ll put you in front of me
So everybody can see
My love, this is my love
I know that I’ll be alright
As long as you are my guide
My love, this is my love

There is no greater love than this than he
who lays down his life for his friends
Now are you willing to lay down your life for your friends?
You’re probably willing to lay down your life for your mother
your father, or your best friends
But are you willing to lay down your life for even those that hate you?
I’m going to tell you who did that
The definition of love is Jesus Christ. He is love
The nails in his hands, the thorns in his brow
Hanging on a cross for your sin my sins
That is love he died for you and me while we still hated him
That is love
God is true love, and if you don’t know this love
Now is the time to know, perfect love

Chorus
I’ll put you in front of me
So everybody can see
My love, this is my love
I know that I’ll be alright
As long as you are my guide
My love, this is my love
(repeat)
