Re: For Robert and the rest of the world....A piece of Heaven
for what it's worth, anyway!
I went through a phase, and it's ok to still be there...but I got into the cure way before I got into a church, (I asked Jesus into my heart when i was a kid, and believe he came in and started watching over me) but I didn't know anything about the Bible or the commandments. Fast forward to the age of 17 when I first heard the Cure. Fell in love with their sound, got exposed to Faith and 17 Seconds (Happily Ever After, actually) and still listen to those works now and love it to death, still. Fast forward to the year 1991, when I did a self-imposed fast from secular (non Christian) music that lasted over a decade. one night my beautiful husband and I watched Trilogy, and the love affair with their music rekindled. I felt like I could actually breathe again, I was watching the video and taking deep breaths, and it felt like something inside me was being allowed to breathe again. It was absolutely wonderful, to be free enough in the Lord to be able to enjoy music that wasn't only about God, but about Him and so much else. About me. : ) I can listen to praise music and listen to music that talks of other things. There is some music that wants to awaken parts of me that I want to keep silent, and am so glad that I get to listen to most of The Cure's music. I hope to be able to learn to play some songs of theirs, as I'm learning the guitar (WAY more complicated than it looks!). : )
