Haiku Start: He Loves You

Amen amen, He loves you,

Because you have loved me,

Love begets more, amen.

This choppy phrasing, a glimpse into reflection on A passage from the Book of John, 16 by chapter: “…For the Father himself loves you, because you have loved me…”

In the most fundamental way I think this says, if you love others in the way He taught us, then too it follows that we are living God’s love.

I guess it’s all about that, it’s all about love. I recall a license plate frame on a car I’d see at church frequently. It read “God is Love.”

Yes, I think that’s true. That’s why He came. YES.

Lyrics Post: “Nothing Else Matters”, Metallica

“Nothing Else Matters” ,brought to you by Metallica.

An epic expression of a simple, rooted perspective, the lyric and music at a high level. It moves me every time I hear it.

“So close no matter how far
Couldn’t be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters

Never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don’t just say
And nothing else matters

Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know

So close no matter how far
Couldn’t be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know

I never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don’t just say
And nothing else matters

Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they say
Never cared for games they play
Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
And I know

So close no matter how far
Couldn’t be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
No nothing else matters”
