Musings From A Musical Mind

I Will Remember You

Downtown Jeannette, Pennsylvania, looking down...

25 years ago Greg and I were youth pastors in a few different places.  One of them was Jeannette, PA.  The picture to the right is the downtown of Jeannette.  We were blessed with sweet memories – a crazy, fun small group of teenagers that were like our very own kids – even though we weren’t much older than they were!

Lately I’ve been blessed to find my ‘lost boys’ and connect with them again on Facebook.  One even found me because of my blog!  I’m so glad for these means of finding people today in our world.  Still looking for the girls!

I also had coffee this morning with my dear friend, Deanna.  She is the kind of friend who just loves me – doesn’t judge me or lecture – just loves.  It is powerful to have these kind of friends in our lives.  She is an example of God‘s richest blessings.

I was thinking about finding the ‘lost boys’ of my past – and today having  rich friendships – and it made me wonder if heaven will be a little bit like this.  Reunions of the heart and mind with people who are dear to us – that have been removed for a time.  What a day that will be – to ‘connect’ with all of them again!  Some who have gone on before – or some that for a number of reasons – are not ‘connected’ with me right now.  In heaven – there will be no more tears, sadness or separation.  We will be able to hold those we love – in a warm embrace.  It will complete our lost and empty feeling that we feel in relationships gone wrong here on earth.  And the Bible says, “He will wipe away all our tears” – and I believe it.

I’ve had a ‘little’ taste of heaven down here – with my wonderful friends – and with my blessing of finding something that was once lost – and now is found.

I will be walking one day
Down a street far away
And see a face in the crowd and smile
Knowing how you made me laugh
Hearing sweet echoes of you from the past
I will remember you

Look in my eyes while you’re near
Tell me what’s happening here
See that I don’t want to say goodbye
Our love is frozen in time
I’ll be your champion and you will be mine
I will remember
I will remember you

Later on
When this fire is an ember
Later on
When the night’s not so tender
Given time
Though it’s hard to remember darlin’
I will be holding
I’ll still be holding to you
I will remember you

So many years come and gone
And yet the memory is strong
One word we never could learn
True love is frozen in time
I’ll be your champion and you will be mine
I will remember you
So please remember
I will remember you
I will remember you
I will remember you
I will remember you

  1. Oh, I so hope you are right, Cindy, and heaven will be just like that! There’s a lot of folks I need to meet up with there. 🙂 I know Facebook has allowed me to reconnect with a whole bunch of my nieces and nephews that we lost track of. Some of them I haven’t seen since they were in kindergarten and now they are all grown up and eager to get the relationships started again. Wonderful age we live in, eh? Oh, and I love that song, too!

    • I guess that’s why I’m so determined to do everything in my power to ‘reconcile’ with other Christian brothers and sisters who still have an ‘issue’ with connecting and being a part of my world in friendship – because we are all going to be in heaven someday and will be forced to reconcile and actually ‘talk’ and ‘be in relationship’ – what a concept! I’m so thankful that things will be just right there – no hidden agenda – no hurts and pain – just love, forgiveness and being together. Yes – I’m looking forward to heaven. ♥

  2. Yes, coffee today was a taste of Heaven today! 🙂 I’m excited that you guys found the “lost boys”. Sounds like this group represents a very special time of life. It is so wonderful when we reconnect with old friends! Thank you again for being a blessing in my life as well.
