Love Has A Name

“I really would want to know what true love really looks like Mummy,” she squeals in delight as she playfully tugs at my hair. My heart does flip-flops within me as I stare into her beautiful eyes, wondering where, how and why she came up with that question. “Well, my love,” I finally speak as I mentally prepare myself to answer her question. “I would love to tell you true love is placing your personal needs last and the needs of others first. I would love to tell you true love is what I feel for you and is shown in how much I take care of you and discipline you even when you do not like how I often punish you sometimes.”

 

I watch my daughter raise an eyebrow at me with a sparkle in both eyes because she knows something else is coming. “There is a big ‘BUT’ coming right?” I chuckle in response to her question. “Yes, my love. Love is more than all of these things. Love is a person. “Really???” She questions with wide eyes. “Yes!” I reply. “Just gimme a second. There is a song I want you to listen to. It is going to explain to you what true love really looks like.” I catch her smile really large as I begin to scroll through my playlist, searching for that song I have always loved from way back. I know she loves music as much as I do.

 

“Found it!!” I yell. She laughs gleefully at me and with me and says, “Mom, you forgot to place the song on loudspeaker.” I sigh deeply as I shrug my shoulders and make funny faces so she giggles harder. It works. She makes me think about how easy it is to make ten year olds laugh with almost zero sense of humour. So, I place the song on loudspeaker and we both listen to the beautiful voice of Kim Walker sing “Love Has A Name….

PS: This is a scene from the future…

 

 

LYRICS OF LOVE HAS A NAME BY KIM WALKER

[Verse 1]
There's a space in every beating heart
There's a longing that reaches past the stars
There's an answer to every question mark
There's a name

[Verse 2]
There's a hope flowing through these veins
There's a voice that echoes through the pain
There's an ember ready for the flame
There's a name

[Pre-Chorus]
We will fix our eyes on the One who overcame
We will stand in awe of the One who breaks the chains

[Chorus]
Love has a name
Love has a name
Jesus
Love has a name
Love has a name
Jesus

[Verse 3]
There's a joy that triumphs over fear
There's a laughter that wipes away all tears
There's a presence that changes atmospheres
There's a name

[Verse 3]
There's a joy that triumphs over fear
There's a laughter that wipes away all tears
There's a presence that changes atmospheres
There's a name

[Bridge]
We will fix our eyes on the One who overcame
Set our eyes on You, Jesus
We will stand in awe of the One who breaks the chains
We stand in You
We will fix our eyes on the One who overcame
Ohh, we fix our eyes
We will stand in awe of the One who breaks the chains
We declare it
We will fix our eyes on the One who overcame
We will stand in awe of the One who breaks the chains! Ohh
