From Loving You

If you received this post by email, click the URL to hear this song.

I wrote this song when I was 17, after breaking up with my first boyfriend. Years later, after a marriage and divorce and soon to re-marry, I realize the profound truth in this song. Just because a relationship ends, doesn’t mean it was a failure, or that it was all bad. Good things can come out of the very worst circumstances and the most difficult times, just like the Phoenix rising from the ashes or the beautiful lotus blossom growing in the mud.

I pray that you, too, have learned from previous relationships, and that you carry those positive things into your next one!

For spiritual support with this or anything else, send me a confidential
prayer request.

From Loving You – Lyrics

1. I loved you once and thought you were the one,
But time proved otherwise, you see.
And when we parted, I thought I was done.
And yet I came away with things.
And
Refrain:

2. From you I learned to always think of things
Before I go and make mistakes.
You taught me patience and what true love is,
And that is why I’m here to say
That
Refrain: (2x)

Oh I am grateful for our time of love.

Refrain:
With the things I learned from loving you,
I can make another’s dream come true.
With the things I learned from loving you,
I know I’ll be better off.
With the things I learned from loving you,
I can make another’s dream come true.
And so I’m grateful for our time of love.
