No greater love

When I was growing up my parents watched a show called Hee Haw. The overall clad men would stand in the middle of a corn field with pitchforks and sing without expression.

I loathed this time we all were forced around the “boob tube” (I still think that is what it is today) and watch these hicks while my parents would roll in the floor with laughter. Then Tammy Wynette or Porter Wagner would come on with their rhinestone embellished suits and my parents were taken in. They told us to "hush up and be quite."

Today I was searching the web for particular sites and inspiration--don’t tell me you don’t do that, you know you do--when the song those men in overalls sang came to my mind. I don’t remember the name, but I do remember this line:

“I searched the world over and thought I found true love, you met another and poof you were gone.”

They would sink back down in the corn fields as the scene changed to Roy Clark who would be laughing and introducing the next guest.

Those days are long gone, and ironically I miss those time now--my parents have both passed on. Nonetheless, it got me to thinking about how we today are looking for true love. When we think we find it, poof, it’s gone. For some it could flee after 30 years, while others a much shorter time, and some have yet to find it.

There is no greater love than the love of the Father--Jesus Christ. He is all in all and everything we are searching for in one. On your search for love, why not take the time to introduce yourself to Jesus Christ; you will find He is waiting for you.

He will introduce Himself to you and you will experience the Love of God. His love is like no other, it is true love that will never fade away.



    That's my favorite Buck Owens song, performed for a 1969 episode of Hee Haw.

    Your post was quite a coincidence. Today I was thinking about Hee Haw, which was well into its syndicated run when I was a kid. I detested that show and The Lawrence Welk Show when I was a kid and I'd like revisit both as an adult.

    If you look back, it's amazing bow long Hee Haw lasted and how many truly great performers appeared--and that's coming from someone who isn't really much of a country music fan overall.

    Oh, and thanks to your post I have "Where oh where are you tonight? Why did you leave me here all alone?" running through my head. Archie Campbell's gag, I think.

  2. Thanks for sharing the video - it is a classic! You are so right about the great performers who visited that set. They left a mark in many of our lives forever.

    LOL about Archie Campbell and that song--I had forgotten it, until now. lala la lala la la la... ;->
