What makes us real.........

Love is all that I can give to you
Love is more than just a game for two
Two in love can make it
Take my heart and please don't break it
Love was made for me and you

I've been a bit wary of writing about films so far because it's so easy to spoil other people's enjoyment (and the plot!) - so if you're planning to watch 'Lars & the Real Girl' you might want to look away now!

Actually I'm going to tease - because this is a film you should watch. For me it was a story of love and acceptance - not in a mushy 'will she get her man' kind of way - but in a heartbreaking, soul searching, tough, questioning kind of way. The kind of love that doesn't have to be a transaction, but is simply offered - the kind of love that is part of our growing up. Love that doesn't judge or condemn, but simply accepts.

The rare kind of love that in the giving sometimes changes and heals the giver as much, if not more than the receiver. The kind of love that makes us real..............

O Love that wilt not let me go,
I rest my weary soul in thee;
I give thee back the life I owe,
That in thine ocean depths its flow
May richer, fuller be.

O Joy that seekest me through pain,
I cannot close my heart to thee;
I trace the rainbow through the rain,
And feel the promise is not vain,
That morn shall tearless be.

O Cross that liftest up my head,
I dare not ask to fly from thee;
I lay in dust life’s glory dead,
And from the ground there blossoms red
Life that shall endless be.
