~ Wedding Song ~

… started this post a long time ago, but it’s a historical Royal Wedding day, so decided to finish/publish …

I’ve never been the girl that has her wedding planned or kept Brides magazines awaiting Mr. Right.  I’ve always thought the groom was a significant part of what the wedding will be, so until the groom is found, I haven’t planned the wedding.  I have had the privilege to stand beside multiple friends as they said their vows and have attended even more weddings, always loving the uniqueness of each couple.  I love details, so talking through the big, ie: vows/commitment and the small, ie: candy bar treats is fun conversation with prospective brides. 

I believe in marriage as designed by God with Christ and the church as the model in Scripture for marriage.  Further than not being a planner, I don’t have “a list” of requirements either.  Who doesn’t want someone they find attractive, humourous, genuine, trustworthy, kind, and on and on?!  Everyone has the same list!  I do have 2 requirements in a mate … one shallow, one deep.

I updated my iPod recently and found a song by duo Joey + Rory.  They are a married couple who sing country music together, songs that capture the life of a husband, wife and family ~ traditional and lyrics of truth.  One perfectly caputred my ideals of a mate …

Born to be Your Woman
Joey & Rory
You’re my man, and I’m your woman
Where you lead me, I will go
I will stand strong beside you,
No matter how hard the wind might blow
Our love will last forever, like this diamond on my hand
Cause I was born to be your woman, and you were made to be my man
You’re the breath in my body
You’re the blood that’s in my veins
You’re my strength when I grow weary
You’re my shelter when it rains
Our love will last forever, like this golden wedding band
Cause you were born to be my woman, and I was made to be your man
We are bound by God forever
We’re part of a bigger plan
Cause I was born to be your woman
And I was made to be your man

    So, I think this is the first time I've left two comments on the same blog post, but I thought you should know that I gave you the "Versatile Blogger Award!" You can check my blog for details. I'm hoping this will encourage more blogging out of you…but if not, just know that I think you are versatile;)
