Mainly, because I don’t think I will ever be married, I don’t believe I will ever find anyone stupid enough to put up with my ways nor have I found chloroform that could work for longer than one night without killing them. Such is the unfortunate life of me.
Nevertheless all kidding aside, I would love to get married sometime in the future. Not presently perhaps am I actively looking for someone to be interested in. Infatuations come and go, none stay very long as they used to. I used to have some interest in some people perhaps, but I am continually brought back to how much more love I should have directed onto the Author of my salvation. Only when I achieve that, then I would dare to begin to look for someone.
My wedding day will be awesome. We’ll be playing Lanae Hale, if my bride to will let me:
“Let’s grow old together with my heart in your hands and your hands holding mine”
I love her voice, and I actually got her whole album for free back when it was released in 2009 – even more cause to be overjoyed with the love and grace that she shows in the song. Truly, this album was one of my favourite albums that year. I am easily enamoured by pop musicians with quirky vocalisations.
Anyway, one things I truly desire is for marriage to be something that lasts a lifetime, and I would spend a whole lifetime finding and searching for the heart to commit to that.
On the other side of the spectrum, from happiness to greater happiness – a song to be played at my funeral. I hope that people would be joyous in my funeral, not so much that I have departed this earth, but that I have gone onto higher and better things. I am reminded of Philippians where Peter says: “My desire is to depart and be with Christ, but to remain here is more important on your account.” I think there is a great amount left to be done on earth, and I hope that I am on this earth a many years left, but there is always a part of me that feels like I belong somewhere else.
I think one song that I would love is by Jars of Clay, All My Tears:
“It don't matter where you bury me, I'll be home and I'll be free.”
So, if anyone find this blog and I have been run over by a bus because I wasn’t looking both ways. I want that song ↑↑ among others.
It’s a wonderful joyful song in an otherwise somber album of pain and suffering. It’s upbeat in the midst of being beat down and struggling. Though we are shedding all these tears in this lifetime, and there are all this enemies fighting us - there is peace when we depart this earth and go on to further glory in Christ. There is a wonderful perspective that this song espouses, and relevant to a multitude of people.
In many ways that personifies life, and that is what I want to portray life as. Simple joys in the midst of ensuing busyness. "Good Monster", the album from which this song is from, is recommended from me, I do enjoy Jars of Clay quite a bit, especially in this album.
What song would you want playing at your funeral? What song would you want playing at your wedding? Do you take joy as you look forward to your funeral, or is that just me?
