Have you ever done something soooo stupid that it makes you laugh everytime you think about it? Well, I had one of those moments Monday afternoon.
I was listening to KLOVE on the way home from work Monday night and I heard a familar song. The only problem was that I didn’t recognize the words. They were singing about “one-eyed love”. I thought it sounded a little strange to have a song about “one-eyed love” but maybe they were having a program on people with disabilities or something. Who knows. I knew the melody so I started singing along…
“Beautiful one-eyed love, beautiful one-eyed door…..”
Then it hit me. I busted out laughing right there in my car. If anyone was beside me, they would have thought that I was crazy. I can’t believe how stupid I was. I half expected someone to lean in and say “here’s your sign!”
I still chuckle at the stupidity even now when I am typing it.
I suppose there is a lesson in this. In Luke 8:18, Jesus says, “So be sure to pay attention to what you hear. To those who are open to my teaching, more understanding will be given. But to those who are not listening, even what they think they have will be taken away from them.” Jesus said to pay attention to what you hear. If you don’t you could miss the “One I love”.
For those who haven’t figured out the actual words to the song, it goes something like:
“Beautiful one I love, beautiful one I adore, beautiful one my soul does sing!”
Does anyone have a Q-Tip?
Hey Son, you didn’t get your good hearing from me…
