we still do

celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary today

I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine
Song of Solomon 6:3
(click play at bottom of post to listen to this song)
I remember well the day we wed
I can see that picture in my head
I still believe the words we said
Forever will ring true 
Love is certain, love is kind
Love is yours and love is mine
But it isn't something that we find
It's something that we do
It's holding tight, lettin' go
It's flying high and laying low
Let your strongest feelings show
And your weakness, too
It's a little and a lot to ask
An endless and a welcome task
 Love isn't something that we have
It's something that we do
We help to make each other all that we can be
Though we can find our strength and inspiration independently
The way we work together is what sets our love apart
So closely that we can't tell where I end and where you start
 It gives me heart remembering how
We started with a simple vow
There's so much to look back on now
Still it feels brand-new
We're on a road that has no end
And each day we begin again
Love's not just something that we're in
It's something that we do

We help to make each other all that we can be
We can find our strength and inspiration independently
The way we work together is what sets our love apart
So closely that we can't tell where I end and where you start
 Love is wide, love is long
Love is deep and love is strong
Love is why I love this song
And I hope you love it too
 I remember well the day we wed
I can see that picture in my head
 Love isn't just those words we said
It's something that we do
 There's no request too big or small
We give ourselves, we give our all
 Love isn't someplace that we fall
It's something that we do
Something that we do
Songwriters  Donald Ewing II / Clint Black

Photo Credits for all anniversary photos to very sweet, very talented Karis @ AriRaePhotography
who captured so much more than I hoped for of our 40th wedding anniversary.
Thank you dear, Karis

Above all, giving thanks to God, who brought us to faith in Christ, is forever faithful to us, forgives us when we sin, loves us when we aren't so lovable, encourages us when it's hard, remembers us when we forget him, leads when we're lost and guides us through the sunshine and storms.

I am SO far behind but I'm trying to catch up. I missed the chance to wish you a happy anniversary - but the wishes are the same. Congratulations on forty years together. We are about to celebrate forty-four so I know the joy you *still* have. I'll be catching up to read more about your wonderful trip and everything else you've shared since I've been busy with life. I've recently shared a couple of things on my blog and have more to share. I'll be back often to visit, sweet friend.
