For me, Ched got a CD by a Christian artist named Chris Rice with a song on it, called "When Did You Fall in Love?" that could have literally been written FOR us. The opening line is "You're all smiles and silly conversation..." - that's ME!! The chorus says,
"When did you fall in love with me?
Was it out of the blue
'Cause I swear I never knew it
When did you let your heart run free?
Have you been waiting long?
When did you fall in love with me?
When did you fall in love?"
He has heard this song many many times, so much so that he knows all of the words. But since I rarely get listen to anything in the car but kids songs, I'd never heard it. It made my eyes tear up, it is so perfect. After 10 years of marriage, on our 10th anniversary, we finally "have a song"!
And I gotta tell you, anyone who says they don't believe in God is plumb crazy. Or, for that matter, anyone who believes that God doesn't care about the little things. We finished opening our presents and decided to go out for pizza for dinner. I intended to take the CD in the car so I could hear it again, but I forgot, and said as much to Ched. And then we sit down in the pizza place and what do you think we heard over the restaurant speakers? You've got it - our song!
So here's to 10 more years! And 20 more after that....and 20 more after that, too!
