Nothing to Hide


Loving a person just the way they are,
It's no small thing;
It takes some time to see things through.
Sometimes things change,
Sometimes we're waiting -
We need grace either way.

Hold on to me,
And I'll hold on to you,
Let's find out the beauty of seeing things through.

There's a lot of pain and
Reaching out and trying -
It's a vulnerable place to be.
Love and pride can occupy
The same spaces, baby,
But only one makes you free.

Hold on to me,
And I'll hold on to you,
Let's find out the beauty of seeing things through.

If we go looking for offense,
We're gonna find it.
If we go looking for real love,
We're gonna find it.

Hold on to me,
And I'll hold on to you,
Let's find out the beauty of seeing things through.

Loving a person just the way they are
That's no small thing -
That's the whole thing.
Loving me just the way I am
It's no small thing -
It takes some time
It takes some time
It takes some time
It takes some time...

- Sara Groves, "Loving a Person"

Lara, I was hoping you would publish this picture at some point. I have been admiring it in the header.

Nice lyrics to go with it too. It is always best to be yourself and for those around you to realize they are not going to change you. Likewise you are not going to change them either.

Take care and have a good weekend.
