A Reminder from a Friend

I am blessed with so many precious friendships. I am truly thankful to God for the relationships he has planted firmly in my life. I love getting that surprise message from a dear friend with an encouraging word and recently that encouragement came through a song (Thank you LT – you get me, I love this, & I love you). I’m sharing it here as I have already forwarded along to many other friends. The words are timely. They are for me. They are for you.

Always Remember

by Christy Nockles

Hey there beautiful one, you there shining with glory
Would you let your heart hear, if I sang about you
Did you know that every fairy tale you love
They have borrowed your story
Of a maiden so lovely, and her hero so true

It’s just that this world is hollow
And it wants to swallow
Any memory of who you really are

Always remember to never forget
When you look in the mirror, the answer is yes
Yes you are pure as gold, yes you are beautiful
So always remember to never forget
(Always remember to never forget)

Like a treasure in the deep, your heart is a diamond
And your hero will do what it takes to find it
So he can hold it tenderly, and become your defender
Even lay down his life, to make your heart his

It’s just that this world is broken
And it wants to hold back
Any evidence of, that kind of love

My darling your light, his favorite parade
On a bright sunny day, in the middle of the mossy
forest you’ll dance in your favorite dress
And oh he loves when you never forget

So always remember to never forget
So always remember to never, baby never forget.

I believe in the God of the Bible and that Jesus is His Son who died on the cross at Calvary for the sins of the world. This free gift is for you and for me, if we accept that fact by faith and strive daily to follow His Living Word that is the same today, yesterday, and forever. Also, for the record, I love my boyfriend whom I have been married to for going on 18 years. We have two boys that are both in high school, which is taught at home by yours truly. Cats, dogs, chickens, ducks, goats, turkeys, squirrels, chipmunks, peacocks, song birds, coyotes, raccoons, opossums, all call our yard home and I have a story about all of them. I am originally from Kentucky, with deep roots in Eastern Kentucky's Appalachian Mountains. I grew up in a working class suburb of Lexington, Kentucky. I am married to a quiet feller from Birmingham, Alabama. We met in Tampa, FL, married, had two kids and moved to California. From there we landed in Alabama for a few years and then by the providence of God we moved to our little piece of heaven in Georgia where we live in a white house, on a little hill, in the rocky foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. I have some things I think I might want to write that maybe someone might want to read... mostly stories and experiences of my own and a few I can relay from second hand knowledge but none with great confidence, pride, or true story telling ability, just overthought ramblings that I quickly need to capture before I forget.
