About Timothy Paul Setser
It has been asked of me. Why do you say, I love you, so much? I say it to Family, Friends and my brothers and sisters in Christ.
Love is something I would never choose to live without. I have been a Christian since I was very young. The love of God flows through me keeping me warm and content. God’s love is so great it cannot be contained. It has to be shared or it will turn sour. So I gladly share my love with all who will accept it.
I know, as well as many people do, there are many kinds of love. God commands the love and respect I have for my parents. Even if we do not always feel we receive that respect back. It is still commanded of us to show the respect we would expect our children to show us.
The love and respect I have shown the woman in my life, was by choice. Although things did not always work out, I loved with a passion that could only be of God. Passion is a gift from God that should never be taken for granted. To love a woman, to be close to a woman, to give everything you are to a woman, is to feel alive. A woman is the only thing on earth that has ever allowed me to use all my senses at once.
The love for my children is a blessing. To hold a newborn. A little person that is part of you. A gift from God himself. A gift chosen before even I was born. A person that a woman risks her life bringing into this world, and I would give my life to protect them from it. I know one day I will be standing before God and he will ask. I gave you three children, what did you do with them? I feel I better have a good answer.
I was recently blessed with a grandson. The blessings just keep coming. I pray I have shown my kids so much love, that they are able to pass it on. They know God. Through his love they are truly blessed. Their children will be all right.
Family, ironically, can be the hardest for some to say I love you. I have a huge family. Nieces and nephews, aunts and uncles, cousins and in-laws. I consider myself fortunate to have been able to spend time with many of them. I love my family. I can’t always agree or even spend time with some of them, but I love them all.
To tell a friend, I love you, has never been strange to me. Friends in Christ, friends when I worked, fellow Marines, even friends on the computer, some of which I have never even met face to face. To know someone has my back, and I have theirs, no matter what. Friends have talked me through bad times and been there in the good times. They have lifted me up and brought me down to earth. I have no regrets telling a friend I love you.
So love with a glad and open heart. You will be a better person for it.

Who can take a sunrise, Sprinkle it with dew? Cover it in chocolate and a miracle or two The candyman, the candyman can, The candyman can 'cause he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good
Who can take a rainbow, Wrap it in a sigh? Soak it in the sun and make the stra'bry lemon pie The candyman? The candyman can The candyman can 'cause he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good
The Candyman makes everything he bakes Satisfying and delicious. Talk about your childhood wishes. You can even eat the dishes!
Who can take tomorrow, Dip it in a dream? Separate the sorrow and collect up all the cream, The candyman? The Candyman can, the candyman can The candyman can 'cause he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good And the world tastes good 'cause the candyman thinks it should
I remember, in the 70's, sitting with cousin Pam listening to this song. She is a very special person and this is our special song. Love you Pam
