P.S. I Love You

I'm still in the midst of watching the movie P.S. I Love You but I had to open my laptop and write a quick blog. I'm amazed that the last time I blogged was back in June, but I won't lament about that now otherwise it would lead me down a rabbit trail that I didn't intend to follow.

Teighlor watched this movie a couple days ago and told me that it was cheesy, so my intent was to return it to Blockbuster before I watched it myself. I'm glad I didn't. The movie isn't some Oscar winner with a script destined for a place in history, but it struck something inside me as I watched it... the theme that God has been teaching me this week - the theme that began Sunday in church - "live for each today".

I miss my husband. He's been gone for a day and night in Wisconsin, which isn't so long in the grand scheme of time, but this movie has made me realize that every today includes him; not that I didn't think that it did before but it reminded me that too many times I take today for granted. I take so many of the little moments - the touches, the glances, the smiles - for granted and I shouldn't.

A cheesy movie somehow strikes a chord in me that reminds me - as God has been impressing - that I am to live my "each today" as abundantly as He imagined it.

Tonight I emailed my Groom the lyrics to a song from this movie. It was such a sweet song that I wanted to include those lyrics here to remember.

I just want to see you
When you're all alone
I just want to catch you if I can
I just want to be there
When the morning light explodes
On your face it radiates
I can't escape
I love you till the end

I just want to tell you nothing
You don't want to hear
All I want is for you to say
Why don't you just take me
Where I've never been before
I know you want to hear me
Catch my breath
I love you till the end

I just want to be there
When we're caught in the rain
I just want to see you laugh, not cry
I just want to feel you
When the night puts on its cloak
I'm lost for words don't tell me
All I can say
I love you till the end

P.S. My Groom, I love You Till the End...
