This Friday is very different. Today I should have been soaking up some beautiful rays on an amazing beach holding hands with the love of my life. That was the plan anyway. John and I so very much wanted to take a second honeymoon to some tropical location to celebrate our 10 Year Wedding Anniversary.
Apparently God had different plans. I still cannot believe we're not holding hands today. Many days I look down at my empty hands and wonder... "What do I do with them as I'm walking into a store.... as I walk into church.."
Here's what I do know though.... I know God is holding me. I know He never gives up on me - even though many times in the last 17 months I've wanted to do just that.
Today - to celebrate a beautiful relationship - even though we must live in different locations - I thought it was only fitting to share one of my favorites of John's songs.
The Way. Some of my favorite lines...
I love the way You take me by the hand - lead me on.
Love the way You hold me to Your heart to love me Lord.
I love the way You lead me to Your teachings for my life,
I love the way You don't give up, though I give up on the fight.
The way You love me through it all, the way You died to save my soul,
I stand in awe of You.
(if you listen all the way through - you'll hear him talk)
Enjoy your Friday!
