To Make You Feel My Love

Great weekend with great friends! It does my heart such good.

Now here I sit and try to catch up on lesson plans and grading and laundry. It has poured since we came home, so we haven't even unpacked the car! Can't say I am looking forward to that :)

This song came on Pandora and it always relaxes me. Where would we be without music to calm our nerves and cut right to our souls.

To Make You Feel My Love - Mick Mcauley & Winifred Horan Version

When the rain is blowing in your face
And the whole world is on your case
I could offer you a warm embrace
To make you feel my love.

When the evening shadows and the stars appear
There is no one there to dry your tears
I could hold you for a million years
To make you feel my love.

I know you haven't made your mind up yet
But I wouldn't do you wrong
I knew it from the moment that we met
No doubt in my mind where you belong.

I'd go hungry, I'd go black and blue
I'd go crawling down the avenue
You know there's nothing that I wouldn't do
To make you feel my love.

The storms are raging on the rolling sea
And on the highway of regret
The winds of change are blowing wild and free
You ain't seen nothing like me yet

I could make you happy, make your dreams come true
Oh, there's nothing that I wouldn't do
Go to the ends of the earth for you
To make you feel my love

The lyrics work for a couple in love, but they also apply to our group of friends. We do have those friends who would go to the end of the earth for us, and we for them. There's often nothing that they wouldn't do. We are thankful for those who could come this weekend and those who couldn't. We are thankful for their compassion and joy.
