Love: It's Something That We DO


  1 Jn 3:18 Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.
Here is a favorite song of mine. It emphasizes the fact that love is a commitment to act, not just a word or an emotion. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

SOMETHING THAT WE DO – Clint Black
I remember well the day we wed,
I can see that picture in my head.
I still believe the words we said.
Forever will ring true.
Love is certain, love is kind.
Love is yours, and love is mine.
But it isn’t something that we find.
It’s something that we do.

It’s holding tight and letting go.
It’s flying high and laying low.
Let your strongest feelings show,
And your weakness, too.
It’s a little and a lot to ask
An endless and a welcome task.
Love isn’t something that we have.
It’s something that we do.

We help to make each other
All that we can be.
Though we can find our strength and inspiration
Independently.
The way we work together
Is what sets our love apart.
So closely that we can’t tell
Where I end and where you start.

It gives me heart remembering how
We started with a simple vow.
There’s so much to look back on now.
Still it feels brand new.
We’re on a road that has no end.
And each day we begin again.
Love’s not just something that we’re in.
It’s something that we do.

We help to make each other all that we can be.
We can find our strength and inspiration
Independently.
The way we work together
Is what sets our love apart.
So closely that we can’t tell
Where I end and where you start.

Love is wide, love is long,
Love is deep, and love is strong.
Love is why I love this song.
I hope you love it, too.

I remember well the day we wed,
I can see that picture in my head.
Love isn’t just those words we said.
It’s something that we do.

There is no request
Too big or small.
We give ourselves.
We give our all.
Love isn’t someplace that we fall.
It’s something that we do.
