Marry Me... Reason #88

Because I will write you something like this...

I danced upon the stars last night
I bit into the moon
I ran the rings of Saturn
Then bounced over to Neptune

I soared into tomorrow
And drank of the milky way
I played a harp with an Angel
From night time until day

I knocked on the doors of heaven
I rang the Bells of Hell
I asked them both the meaning of life
But neither one would tell

I tried to tell the future
I almost forgot my past
I laughed in the face of adversity
Because I was with you at last

You make my life a dream
You wipe away reality
You take away my pain
When you are here with me.

I'd swim the sea of space
I'd travel a light year mile
I'd wrestle with God himself
Just to see you smile.

I'll always be there for you
You make my heart soar
You are the reason men fight battles
You are worth fighting for.

You are my reason
You are my hope
You are my everything
I love you, I want you
In this life, and for eternity...

Hope you have someone to love this Valentine's Day...

I've published this before, but I feel like have to publish it every Valentine's Day.

Friday, January 13, 2006

Marry Me... Reason #80

When I was at a Song of Solomon conference, Tom Nelson told a story of a widow who had just lost her husband. Her husband was a 4 star General in the Navy and she said when he died, "We were married for 60 years and during that entire time, not once did my husband ever hurt me."

I hope to be a husband like that. I know I am going to mess up, but I will do my best to never hurt you.

Marry Me... Reason #79

The Four Horseman of Marriage

There are "Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse" in the book of Revelation that bring terror and destruction into the world. As I've studied marriages, I believe there are "Four Horsemen" that threaten to trample the romance for every couple. The first is sin: romance dies when you and your spouse become so wounded or disillusioned that you become calloused - your soul mate becomes a roommate. The second is age: romance dies when you focus more on the outer beauty than on the inner beauty. The third horseman is laziness: romance dies when your daily routines push out or sap your strength. The final is forgetfulness: romance dies a sad death when you take your spouse for granted and forget that they are a precious gift from God. Finish Strong!

This is from Tom Nelson's Song of Solomon series.

I will always keep an eye out for the Four Horseman.

Marry Me... Reason #75

I am nothing special; just a common man with common thoughts, and I've led a
common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be
forgotten. But in one respect I have succeeded as gloriously as anyone who's
ever lived: I've loved another with all my heart and soul; and to me, this has
always been enough. - from The Notebook

I admit it - I'm a hopeless romantic and I want that all consuming love that keeps you awake at night, the kind that makes your heart race, the kind that if it was ever stripped away would leave you incomplete and crippled. I believe it is out there and I plan to find it.
