The Love Of My Life, by Jolene Riley

Artist

riley
Currently residing in South Orange County, CA with her two sons, this single mom revels in the simple fact that she is never alone. Her eyes and heart are set on the strength that she finds with Jesus Christ. As a result, Jolene Riley has a new found pace in her walk in life. She is on a mission to find those who are in need and then become an advocate standing for them. Her self-formed ministry entitled “door to open hope” is one that Jolene Riley states is close to her heart. Ministering to broken hearts in broken homes with hope and joy in her hands, Jolene Riley visits single moms and brings the reality of hope for tomorrow. She assures them they are not alone. There are people who care and who are there for them. Her message delivers a visual and heart-filled awareness of a picture of peace that they were not able to grasp prior to discovering the door of hope in their lives. Surviving some rough journeys in her life, Jolene Riley speaks and sings with compelling sensitivity. Jolene does not call herself a hero, but an advocate who shares the love and compassion that she found in her Savior.

Her new website is www.jolenerileymusic.com. Her new cd is available through cdbaby.com/cd/rileyjolene2.

Jolene Riley’s Single Mom Ministry

Jolene says:
“I’m currently working on a new organization called S.M.A.R.T. It stands for Single Moms: Accepted, Redeemed, Transformed. You may view the blog at http://smart4moms.wordpress.com/. It is my hope that single moms will connect through this blog and reach out from the disappointments and trails. Nobody intends to get a divorce. Nobody wants to go through the pain of losing a mate and other relationships. Many times, a single mom finds herself feeling isolated and alone. Just knowing that there are people out there who care can make a difference in your day.

A few months ago, I felt a desire to minister to single moms by making deliveries on Valentine’s Day. Valentine’s Day is typically a very “couple-centered” holiday. An idea came to me while walking my dog one day that I should deliver roses to single moms. Well, one thing led to another, and I found myself delivering roses, chocolates, a love letter from God (love scriptures) and a new song I recorded called “The Love of My Life” to 15 single moms. I heard back from many of my friends who said that the single moms who received the love packages were in tears, overjoyed, etc. from the deliveries.

So, on Mother’s Day, I felt like I should do it all over again. This time the deliveries went out to over thirty single moms. There will be more in the future. God gave me the idea, He provided the resources and I know that He is there for those single moms. He is listening to their cries for help, catching their tears and holding them near to Him… even when it doesn’t feel like it. He is there. Single moms need to know that they have a Husband in the Lord. They are accepted, redeemed, and transformed through His love.”

The Love Of My Life

You bring a love song
You bring to me
You bring rejoicing
Over me

You give a love song
You give to me
You give rejoicing
Over me

Chorus: You are the love of my life
You are my all
You are the love of my life
You are my Lord
The most beautiful love song is You
The most beautiful love song is You

You play a love song
You play for me
You play rejoicing
Over me

You sing a love song
You sing to me
You sing rejoicing
Over me

You are the love of my life
You are my all
You are the love of my life
You are my Lord
The most beautiful love song is You
The most beautiful love song is You

Everlasting, everlasting love
So great a love is this
You died to show me that You love me.
You love me.. Love of my life.
