A sweet, sweet old love song wafted through my car radio this afternoon… melody and words breezing don’t be afraid, I’ve got it covered peace across my worries and fears.
Calling up misty-eyed memories of my Grandma and Papa, Mom’s parents, because…this was their song, Mom always said.
Whispering of a charming old 1940’s movie about the romance and life of baseball great, Lou Gehrig….where this Irving Berlin treasure lilted through every scene between Gary Cooper and Teresa Wright.
But today…even more… the words, sung by Paul McCartney, of all people... paint a message of God’s everlasting Heart in me. Because the Love Song is His favorite way of speaking…and no matter how old…never goes out of style.
Maybe, on this still Saturday… you need to hear this one too…
Days may not be fair
That’s when Ill be there
Not for just an hour
Not for just a day
Not for just a year
Ill be loving you,
With a love that’s true
When the things you’ve planned
Need a helping hand
I will understand
~ Irving Berlin

I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.”
