JJ Heller - What Love Really Means (Official Music Video)
This is my favorite song right now. Why is it so hard to love some people? I am a very guarded person and I do distance myself from people who continually hurt me, but I still try to love them.
This past week, we having been dealing with a stolen cell phone. It was stolen at school, during gym class. I talked to Rogers and got all the numbers that were called on it after it was stolen and I called those numbers, trying to figure out who took it. I found out very quickly. I do not know this boy, but my heart has been aching for him and for his mother. I told the school and they tried to deal with it and got now where and they encouraged me to call the police. The police took it very seriously and were there within the hour. I talked to this boys father, and last night, his mother called me. I could tell how upset she was, she didn't want the law involved. But when I spoke to the police officer, he was very encouraging. It is all about prevention.
But how do I know how my act has affected this boy? He is young, he has been in some trouble before... is this something that will help him or hinder him? I have been praying for him and his parents, particularly his mother. I guess that is all I can do.
This song also makes me think of all the orphans without homes... they just need love, and as much as we like our safe, little comfort zones, can there ever be enough done to help these children?
Anyway... words to dwell on and live by.
