"Love me tender, love me true"

"Love me tender, love me sweet, never let me go.
You have made my life complete and I love you so."


Maundy Thursday. From the Latin: commandment. And that commandment is,
Love each other. That's all, That's it, That's enough. That is everything:
Love each other.

"Love me tender, love me true, all my dreams fulfilled.
For my darlin' I love you and I always will."


Love. And imagine this. Sing this softly and imagine the Spirit of Life,
the Love of the Universe, G-D, Life itself, singing this to you:

"Love me tender, love me long, take me to your heart.
For it's there that I belong, and we'll never part."


You. At the center of God's heart. At the heart of God's love. Hear
the lullaby, drift off knowing that the One who is all is all about you.

"Love me tender, love me dear, Tell me you are mine.
I'll be yours through all the years, 'til the end of time."



Not sure Elvis ever had this quite in mind, nor Vera Matson as she wrote the text, but it works, it carries the message we all need.

"Love me tender, love me true, all my dreams fulfilled.
For my darlin' I love you and I always will."



May you know deep in your bones the lovely sense of being loved, of being the one who fulfills God's dreams, makes God's life complete.
