Sacred Spaces 468– Back to Back

8 July 2015

Today, is a month till, I get married to my beautiful Catherine.
I’m so excited!
Now, I’m no expert on love, but I discovered lyrics of an artist whom I respect a lot; that captures love so well.  Thank you Dustin Kensrue:

When the call hasn’t come,
Let me sit with you and wait.
When the other kind does,
Let me help you bear the weight.
 
Let me gather wood, when the fires gone out.
Let me pray for you, when you’re filled with doubt.
Hold your white knuckled hands, when our daughters out too late.
 
Let me be the one, that’s walking with you through the night.
When the morning comes, with its brash and blinding light.
Let me be the one, that’s crawling with you through the thorns.
Back to back, we both were born to share this fight.
 
When you haven’t got no sleep,
Let me fix you a cup of Joe.
Let me soak your shirt in tears,
When the tumour starts to grow.
 
Let me rub your back when the children whine.
Let me push your cart through the five and dime.
Help you hobble down the hall with your IV line in tow.
 
Let me be the one, that’s walking with you through the night.
When the morning comes, with its brash and blinding light.
Let me be the one, that’s crawling with you through the thorns.
Back to back, we both were born to share this fight.
 
There’s no one I’d rather walk with,
Through the brier or the flame.
Let me hold you in the darkness,
In the fire, in the rain.
 
Let me be the one, that’s walking with you through the night.
When the morning comes, with its brash and blinding light.
Let me be the one, that’s crawling with you through the thorns.
Back to back, we both were born to share this fight.
Back to back, we both were born to share this fight.
Back to back, we both were born to share this fight.

Hmm, I wish I wrote those lyrics!  I’m still learning love, but the lesson is one worth pay attention:

Love is loyal
Love is faithful
Love fights for the other
Love rejoices

I’ve been on many adventures.
Seen many cool places.
But now I am super excited for the “adventure of love” (and, no, that’s not a cheesy statement at all!)

We have sights to see.  Chapters to fill.

But I can revel in lyrics.  I can revel in our great moments as a couple.
But if there is one thing we will always hold onto and rely on; it is this.

God’s love is the anchor.
God’s love is the foundation.
God’s love is the best example.
God’s love is relentless.

Jeremiah 31:3

“The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness.”

Love is, God’s idea.
Amen!

Quoted:

“There is no fear in love, but perfect love drives out fear.” 1 John 4: 18
