Living life as if it's a musical

I often walk around the house singing…to God...to the dogs...to the walls…not that I "can" sing… but I just do. I know we are to make a joyful noise…well I have the noise part down. hahahaha
I had been doing this long before I found scriptures like theses…

Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord Ephesians 5:19

…singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. Colossians 3:16

Which then just made me feel like I had a license to live my life like a musical and I often break out into song while just doing the dishes....or any household chore.
However the last few months at home I have to say I had no songs, no words, I had nothing... just tears.
And I could feel the Lord just sitting and waiting…
patiently, compassionately, kindly… waiting.
Never pushing… just gently loving me till I could sing again.
Like a song bird with a broken wing he has lovingly been tending to me.
Today I found that old familiar well of life bubbling up in my soul after I heard someone singing on tv… and all of a sudden I found myself walking around the house singing the same words…over and over again…. HE LOVES ME… HE LOVES ME… HE LOVES ME… HE LOVES ME… HE LOVES ME… HE LOVES ME… HE LOVES ME…awwwww it felt so good to let if come forth.  The more I breathe these word out the more breath I felt come into me.   
Then my phone rang and it was this precious widow from our church and she said I just called to tell you …”You are fearfully and wonderfully made…and God loves you!”
Yes he does! HE LOVES ME!…and HE LOVES YOU!
May you know, that you know, that you know... that...
HE LOVES YOU!  

If we allow God he will use us to be his expression of love to the people around us. Like that sweet lady from my church who called… she was Gods expression of love to me today.
My husband was one of the greatest expressions of God’s love in my life.
And even though he is gone home now... I feel today God was showing me that the expression of his love for me has not lessened because Richard is not here …he is just sending it to me in other ways.
Ways that make my heart sing again!
HE LOVES MEEEEEEEEEE!
