Our Song...

9/16/2015

Bonjour mes amis!

I've been doing a lot of reflecting lately.  No rhyme or reason, just whatever pops into my head, whatever triggers a memory.  Today I've had the Christian TV Radio Station on all day while I worked on paperwork and began decorating a little for Fall.



As I walked by the TV to put something away earlier, an artist's name "Keaggy" came on the TV screen, and then it flashed off quickly, since it was the end of the song.  Suddenly, I recalled something sweet from my Engagement to my husband...

Our Song...



It was the song we wanted sung at our Wedding, but back in the days before the Internet, obtaining lyrics and musical scores was not an easy task, so we had to do without on our Wedding Day...


The lyrics to "Our Song" were perfect for us, so we included them in a little booklet we passed out at our Wedding, and I've never forgotten this.  Today, I decided to google the song, and lo and behold, was able to listen to the song by the original artist...

and then the tears started...


I hope you will click the link above and listen.  I know it's from the '80's, but the words are so sweet, and I still feel the same about my husband, 32 years later.  He always supports me and encourages me, and he loves me no matter what!  I am so blessed.


Song Lyrics
for
What a Wonder Your Are
by Phil Keaggy
*******
Love, you have truly won my heart today,

Love, I am by your side and here I'll stay.

As we leave our lives behind and enter anew
A place where we two can now rise,
Take hold of the morning.



Love and devotion walking hand in hand,

More than emotion this is in His plan.
I'm amazed at how He's placed you in my life.
There was a time when my eyes
Couldn't face the morning.



Honey, I'm thankful cause you loved me.

Darlin', I'm thankful cause you needed me.
Oh, what a wonder, oh, what a wonder you are,



Now we are under the everlasting arms.

The everlasting arms.


Love is a lady living for her man.

Love is a man who really understands.
As we leave our lives behind and enter anew
A place where we two can now rise,
Take hold of the morning.



Honey, I'm thankful cause you loved me.

Darlin', I'm thankful cause you needed me.
Oh, what a wonder, oh, what a wonder you are,
Now we are under the everlasting arms.
The everlasting arms.


My husband has asked me to write a book.  I asked him what I should write about.  If you've read any of my blog, you know I could write about living in France and never be bored.  BUT, he has asked me to write about my memories.  A book?  Frankly, I'm more comfortable with my blog, since then I can just do tidbits as I go, and then I don't have to worry about making it so cohesive overall, but we will see...it's a challenge for sure.  I have things to recall...



And it was especially sweet to recall this special time in my life today, because I have had quite a wonderful life with this man by my side...
