Back in the day -- What Kind of Love is This?

I first heard Danniebelle Hall singing with Andrae' Crouch and the Disciples; her voice just grabs a hold of you and touches deep inside. On the song, Ordinary People you can hear the gentle sweetness of her voice letting you know, God looks for folk just like you and me. She faced health-related trials some of which included being an insulin dependent diabetic, surviving a mastectomy due to breast cancer and left leg amputation below the knee. I guess that's just a testimony to the life of an ordinary Christian, that she lived without a lot of fanfare. Danniebelle Hall went to be with the Lord on December 28, 2000.

I'm sure you'll enjoy this moving song that probes the love of God for us from 1 John 3:1-2.

What kind of love is this He has bestowed on me?
I am a child of God and I speak of a mystery.
I don't know how it is or how it shall be, (oh no)
But this one thing I know (yeah) that when His face I see,

I shall be like Him, for I shall know Him.
In all of His beauty and glory, I will behold Him,
And I'll trade this robe of flesh for immortality.
Then I can tell you, I'll tell you how this love can be.

Lyrics by Danniebelle Hall

I love that word "bestow" when thinking about the love of God...He bestowed, lavashed, His love on us. Praise His Holy name.
