We will skip all the baby songs, since honestly I do not remember being a baby~much less if here were song titles that named this period. I was only the baby of the family for three and a half years, before Mama's favorite came along. He was really a beautiful baby--beauty was important to Mama. The oldest was really brilliant--brains were really important to Mama. And then there was me---the song that comes to mind "Stuck in the middle".
Then there were all those middle years. The Beatles had a plethora of songs which described these years including "Here Comes the Sun" and "All You Need Is Love". Let's not forget The King and "Fools Rush In" and "All Shook Up".
One of my all time favorites is "I've buried the hatchet, but the handle is still sticking out." There is nothing to add to this lyric!
Here I am, somehow in the waning years---the final chapters. Toby Keith describes it perfectly, "Not As Good As I Once Was." And NO song is truer to real life than "I Can't Sleep"! Once again, The Beatles capture the spirit of what I am trying to say with "Yesterday" and "The Long and Winding Road." Let's face it The Beatles were great philosophers without realizing it.
WHERE am I going? What brought all this to mind is the song title that popped in my head for the Bible Study we are currently doing. The book Search for Significance was obviously written with me in mind. In the first chapter the song that hit me and keeps replaying is "Looking for Love in All The Wrong Places." There will be more on the book in future posts, but suffice it to say I have been convicted. My life long search for love has lead me down many a trail, when ALL the time God was right there by me--Loving Me!
