{wIlD HoRsEs}

If it were even possible, to tattoo "a song" to your skin, as a way of conveying personal meaning, purpose, or power to you......the song playing would be tattooed all over me.

Wild Horses.....I picture Macsen in paradise with them. Enjoying their company. Their distinct smell and presence. Soaking in their loveliness! An utterly perfect depiction of the place that he now lives.
I grew up on a Morgan horse ranch in Wyoming, so horses are an intricate, strong and beautiful memory in my childhood. One that I replay in my adult mind often. It brings me peace. Horses represent to me youth, beauty, gentleness, peace and freedom in a way that words could never fully convey.

But this song also very much speaks of my love for my Jesus. My love, that inspite of what darkness comes my way, inspite of what storms I am called to swim, inspite of what he gives or takes away from me in this life......Wild Horses could'nt drag me away from HIM.

Jesus,You ARE youth, beauty, gentleness, peace and freedom to me like nothing I have ever tasted before.

When people meet me, I pray that YOU being tattooed all over me, is all that they see!

(Turn the song up loud! It's best that way! Jesus is best that way too.....LOUD)

That was a nice post. I also want people to "see" Jesus in my life when they talk to me, and watch my daily living.

Jewel's version of this song is much better than the Rolling Stone's version! I'm not into tattoos, so I also pray that people see Jesus when they see me.
