Just A Thought

I like parts of this song.

I like it because it puts music to an idea that surfaces in my head/heart every once in a while.

When you love someone or something, that love never goes away.

It may be folded up and tied with a neat little bow to be stored on a heart shelf deep inside, but it never leaves completely. Once that spark has been kindled it never ceases to exist. It cannot. It is too pure to be snuffed out entirely. Although love may burn low with time and distance -- and this is often a very good thing -- it is still there. Everyone involved gets to keep some when they go.

Can you imagine how life would be if everyone you ever loved were still at the forefront of your mind with blinding intensity? How about when those people died or can't help but to be distant? It would be all consuming.

I wonder if this is why we cannot walk with God on this mortal plane of existance. The distance keeps us from burning in the glow of His pure love.

Just a thought.

I could be wrong.
