Twenty Amazing Years

I am celebrating today. My heart is filled with joy at the thought that I have been married to my beloved husband for twenty years! So, to celebrate, I am dedicating these songs to my Tender Warrior. This first tribute is especially fitting. I chuckled when I found this video. We have a bit of a love for "Little House on the Prairie" around here. I was searching for the most appropriate video for this song that I had already selected and this just makes me smile. So here's for the man who has been telling the funniest "Pa" stories to our children for years (ever since my Country Girls were small and first loved the "Little House" books and TV show). It's still a nightly ritual. So, enjoy the video, but it's truly the lyrics that speak to us as none other than Steven Curtis Chapman can do! (Even if we do have a soft spot for Charles and Caroline).

I wanted to add a song that is really "our song" over the past year. Unfortunately, there are no appropriate videos for it! There is only one and it is done to "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie scenes which COMPLETELY ruins it and does not do the song justice in the least! Oh well. Instead, I'll choose this one. It kind of dates us (it has been twenty years after all) but we are still Michael Card fans. Though we did not use this song at our wedding (I think it was released just after we were married), we had a few friends that did, and we did use some of the Scripture in our wedding. No video to watch here. Just lyrics to listen to.

Happy Anniversary to my best and dearest friend and love of my life! We have walked through so much life together and I pray the Lord will grant us a couple more "scores" of years together. I love you!. Thank you for indeed being my very Tender Warrior. Soli Deo Gloria!

"Welcome one another....for the glory of God." That is God's word for your marriage. Thank him for it; thank him for leading you thus far; ask him to establish your marriage, to confirm it, sanctify it, and preserve it. So your marriage will be "for the praise of his glory." Amen.
