To My Wonderful Husband

I am so glad that God doesn’t make us travel this journey of life by ourselves and I am even more grateful for the man who chose to travel it with me.  I never thought that I was necessarily the best catch, in fact, I am all too aware of my shortcomings and failures but I always hoped that despite the fact that I am not the perfect woman that there would be someone somewhere who would love me anyway and be willing to be there with me and for me through the good and the bad.

21 years ago I found just that person.  I made one of the best decisions of my life when I married Kim Robinson.  Although both of us have changed over the years my feelings about him have not, they have grown but not really changed I still feel like it was one of the best decisions of my life to marry him.  Today I just feel deeply grateful that he is the one I get to share my life and all of Eternity with.

There is a song by Blake Shelton called “God Gave Me you”.  I love this song because it describes exactly what I feel about my husband.  I thank God regularly for sending him to me to share my life with.  Without him I’m a mess and he sticks around through it all.  I am so grateful for him.  So here’s to my wonderful Husband:

 

“God Gave Me You”couple

I’ve been a walking heartache
I’ve made a mess of me
The person that I’ve been lately
Ain’t who I wanna beBut you stay here right beside me
And watch as the storm blows through
And I need youCause God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt
And for when I think I lost my way
There are no words here left to say, it’s true
God gave me you
Gave me youThere’s more here than what we’re seeing
A divine conspiracy
That you, an angel lovely
Could somehow fall for me
You’ll always be love’s great martyr
And I’ll be the flattered fool
And I need you
Yeah!God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt
And for when I think I lost my way
There are no words here left to say, it’s true
God gave me you

On my own I’m only
Half of what I could be
I can’t do without you
We are stitched together
And what love has tethered
I pray we never undo

Cause God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt
God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt
And for when I think I lost my way
There are no words here left to say, it’s true
God gave me you, gave me you
He gave me you

    Keith Urban – “Thank You”
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-QsS4k26QIQ

    There were nights where I was sure I wouldn’t see the mornin’ sun
    And there were days that seemed so dark
    I couldn’t wait for night to come
    I couldn’t stand to think about how my life used to be
    And how without a single warnin’ it all slipped away from me

    Like a fool I thought that I could fight the shadows on my own
    To the dark I was no stranger, this was stronger than I’d known.
    By the time I knew that I was in too deep I’d gone too far
    And the light that used to guide me had faded from my heart

    And I found myself in places I thought I’d never go
    Surrounded by strangers I was so far from home
    And I don’t know how you found me
    All I know is I owe everything to you, yes I do

    And I thank you for my heart, I thank you for my life
    And I thank God for grace and mercy and that you became my wife
    I’m seein’ for the first time the stars, the sun and moon
    But they’ve got nothin’ on the power of this love I have for you
    And I thank you, I thank you

    People say they’ll stand beside you, swear they’ll never leave
    When the rain started fallin’ you know it only fell on me
    It was hard to keep believin’ in myself when all I felt was so much pain and guilt and shame
    I couldn’t even ask for help

    I don’t know if I believe in other lives but when you came
    There was somethin’ so familiar about the way you said my name
    And the whole world started turnin’
    And I swear that I’d been born again brand new
    And it’s all because of you

    And so I thank you for my heart, I thank you for my life
    And I thank God for grace and mercy and that you became my wife
    I’m seein’ for the first time the stars, the sun and moon
    But they’ve got nothin’ on the power of this love I have for you
    And I thank you

    And I’ve seen so many things that I just can’t explain
    But the miracle of miracles is how with your love I was saved
    And I thank you

    I thank you for my life
    I thank God for grace and mercy and that you became my wife
    And I’m seein’ for the first time the stars the sun and moon
    But they’ve got nothin’ on the power of all this love I give to you

    And I thank you for my heart, I thank you for my life
    I thank God for grace and mercy and that you became my wife
    The day I started breathing was the day you took my hand
    And ’til the day I die baby I’ll forever be your man
    And I thank you, I thank you

    Yes, I do
    Don’t you know I thank you?
