Our Love Story, 36 Years & Counting – The Love Song & Beautiful

 

Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Psalms 37:4 (RSV)

Marriage is an exercise in perseverance.  Endurance training in relationships is a key to successful marriages.  I am of the opinion that success in relationships in general is found by directing Phil 2:3 to your spouse selflessly:

Do nothing from selfishness or conceit, but in humility count others better than yourselves.

Phil 2:3 (RSV)

**********************************************************

I love you, the love of my life

I need you, our love is right.

I’ve found the one that my soul loves,

No other love means so much.

I prayed to my god for a heart to keep

He gave me the one, He knew my needs.

Over and over this love is sweet

I recognize the joy that makes our love complete

God gave you to me.

You’re the one I prayed for so long

Fearless trust I never thought I’d know

I’ve found the answer to my dreams

My eyes were opened to love’s mystery.

I prayed to my God for a heart to keep

He gave me the one, He knew my needs

Over and over this love is sweet

I recognize the joy that makes our love complete

God gave you to me

The love of my life…

I love you, the love of my life

I need you, our love is right

I’ve found the one that my soul loves

No other heart gives so much

God gave you to me

You’re the one I love

You are the love of my life

In 2001, Darla Day wrote and recorded this song for her own wedding, Love of My Life (The Wedding Song).”  Music and Karaoke CD/MP3′s can be found here:  http://www.darladay.net/Wedding_Song/WeddingSong-Main.html  I was searching for the perfect song to share with my wife on our anniversary and Valentines67 Day (her birthday) on youtube and found this one spoke particularly strong to me, as it fits our story so well.  I shared it with Robin last night and her tears answered the question perfectly well that she agreed.

Today, Robin and I celebrate 36 years of marriage, and plan if it is the will of God to celebrate a 72nd together.  This song is one of the best I have heard, and I am always looking for poetry and music that expresses how I feel about my wife and our life together, ones that illustrates the Covenant of marriage between two people.

 Another song I would like to dedicate to my wife today is this one:

From the Moment I saw you,
from the moment I looked into your eyes
there was something about you
I knew I knew
that you were once in a life time
a treasure near impossible to find
and I know how lucky I am to have you

Chorus:
Cause I’ve seen the rainbows that can take your breath away
the beauty of the setting sun that ends a perfect day
and when it comes to shooting stars, I’ve seen a few
but I’ve never seen anything…as beautiful as you

Holding you in my arms
no one else has fit so perfectly
I could dance forever with you, with you
and at the stroke of midnight
please forgive me if I can’t let go
cause I never dreamed I’d find a Cinderella of my own

I have spent my lifetime exploring the universe.  My eyes have beheld comets stretching across the sky; I saw the string of pearls comet, which then left impact scars in Jupiter’s violent atmosphere (Shoemaker Levy 9); I have seen galaxies colliding; I have seen quasars in the remote reaches of the universe; I have seen the central star of the Ring Nebula winking its dim light at me; I have searched the extents and filaments of the Veil Nebula; I saw the transit of Venus (with you by my side); I searched out the galaxies in the Big Dipper; I have watched in wonder as the sun arose and sat on craters on the moon; I have seen the marvelous and awesome wonders of the universe; but none of them compare to you, my love – my angel – my life.  One gaze into your eyes eclipses them all.

I don’t know how song writers speak so accurately to my experience in love and life, as these two have.  My wife is my soul-mate, the Love of My Life, and my Cinderella.  From the moment first saw her, from that first gaze into her eyes, I knew she was something special; she is my treasure.

She is my only hearts desire…and I will forever love her with all that I am.
