You don't love someone because...

“I told you. You don't love someone because of their looks or their clothes or their car. You love them because they sing a song only your heart can understand.” ― L.J. Smith

Another archive painting from early 2010. Seems like I did a lot of backwash on the canvas and dripping of paint before it because so popular. I have learned so much since then and limit how often I do this and HOW I do it.

I truly love the quote again today. Heck I love most of them.  But having your heart sing a song when you are in love and with the person you love is amazing.  I am blessed to be married to my high school sweetheart and  "Cherish" was our song way back when.  Right now I sit feeding our 11 month old grandson and singing away "Good morning God, this is your day, Noah's your child, please show him the way."  Right there with me in harmony is Terry, my love.  We launch off into "My God is so Big" song and then we sing our breakfast prayer "God is great and God is good."

Singing is a heartbeat to who I am.  Terry knows this and sings right along with me. 

"Sing to the LORD a new song; sing to the LORD, all the earth." Psalm 96:1
