To my Beloved...



Marc, this is for you. I love you so much that I worked on this in my spare time. :) Thank you for showing me Christ for the last four years, may we have many many more.

After four years, the words of our wedding song still ring true. Perhaps even more so now. I appreciate this song so much because the song is not just about our love, but the love of those around us. And that is how real love is! It causes you to turn outward and want to share with others the joy you have found.

I know that for both of us, this season of being separated from family has been long and hard, but thank you for giving me every moment. I love you more than words can express.



Every Minute
By Sara Groves

I am long on staying
I am slow to leave
Especially when it comes to you my friend
You have taught me to slow down
And to prop up my feet
It's the fine art of being who I am

And I can't figure out
Why you want me around
I'm not the smartest person I have ever met
But somehow that doesn't matter
No it never really mattered to you at all

And at the risk of wearing out my welcome
At the risk of self-discovery
I'll take every moment
And every minute that you'll give me

And I can think of time when families all lived together
Four generations in one house
And the table was full of good food
And friends and neighbors
That's not how we like it now

Cause if you sit at home you're a loser
Couldn't you find anything better to do
Well no I couldn't think of one thing
I would rather waste my time on than sitting here with you

And at the risk of wearing out my welcome
At the risk of self-discovery
I'll take every moment
And every minute that you'll give me

And I wish all the people I love the most
Could gather in one place
And know each other and love each other well

And I wish we could all go camping
And lay beneath the stars
And have nothing to do and stories to tell
We'd sit around the campfire
And we'd make each other laugh remembering when
You're the first one I'm inviting
Always know that you're invited, my friend

And at the risk of wearing out my welcome
At the risk of self-discovery
I'll take every moment
And every minute that you'll give me
Every moment and every minute that you'll give me
Every moment and every minute that you'll give me
Every minute

This is such a precious tribute. God has given you a very special love for one another. When you are united in Christ each year gets better and better. Congratulations on four years and counting.
Love, Mom and Dad :-)
