Singing Sunday


Today is a special Singing Sunday edition for us. Today marks our 12th year wedding anniversary. To celebrate, we broke out our wedding video and are showing you the song that we sang to each other during our wedding.

After watching you will know why you shouldn't store your video tapes in the attic. That being said, the quality of the video is horrific but at least the sound is good. I really just wanted the sound anyway but because I couldn't figure out how to put my own song on the blog I had to do it this way.

Here are the lyrics...

WHAT A WONDER YOU 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.

We started the video with the love verses from 1 Corinthians 13:4-8. It is amazing what true love does. I have not arrived there yet. It doesn't seem possible for any human to attain this type of love, only Jesus can truly demonstrate this love. When you are up there getting married its a wonder that people don't turn and run because loving like that doesn't seem to be attainable.

While you go through your day today, ponder those verses. Do you REALLY love others?

Happy anniversary, you two. May the Lord pour out blessings, many more blessings upon you both and your wonderful children!!!

Love is a process and 1 Corinthians 13 is the guide. I think the way we progress in this type of love is to have the Father's love revealed to us.

Have a wonderful romantic lunch. :)
