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 didnâ€™t recognize the words. They were singing about â€œone-eyed loveâ€. I thought it sounded a little strange to have a song about â€œone-eyed loveâ€ but maybe they were having a program on people with disabilities or something. Who knows. I knew the melody so I started singing alongâ€¦
â€œBeautiful one-eyed love, beautiful one-eyed doorâ€¦..â€
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 canâ€™t believe how stupid I was. I half expected someone to lean in and say â€œhereâ€™s your sign!â€
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, â€œSo 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.â€ Jesus said to pay attention to what you hear. If you donâ€™t you could miss the â€œOne I loveâ€.
For those who havenâ€™t figured out the actual words to the song, it goes something like:
â€œBeautiful one I love, beautiful one I adore, beautiful one my soul does sing!â€
Does anyone have a Q-Tip?
