Valentines day is Monday. There are those moments when a different kind of knock sounds our heart’s door. Once such knock for me occurred four years ago. Sitting on a roadside somewhere near Georgia next to my car, there was nothing.
With my marriage secretly over for a month, the now empty sun shining on my head, and the fear of an uncertain time ahead, I did what we are told to never do. It was there on a rock amongst the red dirt I looked at the sky with the most angry tears I have ever felt. . “ARE YOU HERE?!?!?! DON’T YOU CARE?” The windows on the car were down, and within a nanosecond of my blasphemous act....this song began playing on the radio I had left on inside the car. In shock, all I could offer up was a hoarse laugh and the words “Okay, then; needed to know.”
I got up and grabbed a paper towel from the back and wiped my face off and got back in the car. I don’t remember much else from that drive. This is the first time I have ever spoke of it. This is why I chose this song as the #1 Valentines Day salute to love. Love Lives, people. You may not see it or feel it in your life right now...but trust me, LOVE LIVES..HE LIVES...So, Happy Valentines Day!
