Power of Two

Four years ago today, I walked down the aisle and found the love of my life waiting for me. Of course, I did already know he was going to be there.

In honor of our fourth wedding anniversary (Thursday), while I waited for Luke to get home, I decided to update the look around here. Unfortunately, I didn't like how it was going, so I'm back to how it was. But - hopefully there will be some changes around here soon.

And by changes, I do mean some posting. There have been graduations, ordinations, new jobs, all kinds of fun stuff. But now its late, and time for bed.

Power of Two - by the Indigo Girls
Now the parking lot is empty
Everyones gone someplace
I pick you up and in the trunk Ive packed
A cooler and a 2-day suitcase
Cause theres a place we like to drive
Way out in the country
Five miles out of the city limit were singing
And your hands upon my knee

So were okay
Were fine
Baby Im here to stop your crying
Chase all the ghosts from your head
Im stronger than the monster beneath your bed
Smarter than the tricks played on your heart
Well look at them together then well take them apart
Adding up the total of a love thats true
Multiply life by the power of two

You know the things that I am afraid of
Im not afraid to tell
And if we ever leave a legacy
Its that we loved each other well
Cause Ive seen the shadows of so many people
Trying on the treasures of youth
But a road that fancy and fast
Ends in a fatal crash
And Im glad we got off
To tell you the truth

Cause were okay
Were fine
Baby Im here to stop your crying
Chase all the ghosts from your head
Im stronger than the monster beneath your bed
Smarter than the tricks played on your heart
Well look at them together then well take them apart
Adding up the total of a love thats true
Multiply life by the power of two

All the shiny little trinkets of temptation
(make new friends)
Something new instead of something old
(but keep the old)
All you gotta do is scratch beneath the surface
(but remember what is gold)
And its fools gold
(what is gold)


Now were talking about a difficult thing
And your eyes are getting wet
I took us for better and I took us for worse
Dont you ever forget it
Now the steel bars between me and a promise
Suddenly bend with ease
The closer Im bound in love to you
The closer I am to free

So were okay
Were fine
Baby Im here to stop your crying
Chase all the ghosts from your head
Im stronger than the monster beneath your bed
Smarter than the tricks played on your heart
Well look at them together then well take them apart
Adding up the total of a love thats true
Multiply life by the power of two

After nearly thirteen, I still remember vividly what it was like to be at the front of the church and see my bride enter from the back. Whew.

Happy Fourth!

Congrats to the two of you, both very deserving of each other. Defnitely my nomination for power couple of 2002.

The lyrics to that song describe a marriage of 40 years which ended too soon, when he died six months ago. Thank you for reminding me of that goodness and faithful love!
