Michael's Birthday - Together

Today we celebrate the anniversary of the birth of my dear husband.  What a treasure he is!  When I married him, I loved him with all of my heart and I knew I was blessed that he had chosen me for his bride.  But it really wasn't until our latter years that I have come to truly appreciate all that he is.  He is an anchor.

Though we are both very much in the throngs of grief, he is firm, resolute, unwavering...just like always.  We share memories.  We share hurts.  We cry together.  He prays over me and for me, recites Scripture, remembers God's faithfulness, has a heart of thankfulness, reminds me of what I know.

I have led a charmed life.  A blessed life.  It really never dawned on me that I would be facing the unimaginable.  But, oh, how thankful I am that God gave me the gift of this wonderful man to walk beside!  There is no greater earthly treasure.

Lyrics:

Here we stand, here we are
With all our wounds and battle scars
From all the storms and all the wars we’ve weathered together
We had no way of knowing when
We started way back there and then
How the road would twist and turn and bend
We just knew we belonged together

And if it wasn’t for God’s mercy and His grace
There’s no way we would be standing in this place
But because He has been faithful
Every step along the way
Here we are together

We’ve climbed up mountains higher than
Were ever in our hopes and plans
We’ve held onto each other’s hands
Watched miracles unfold together

And we’ve crawled on our hands and knees
Through valleys cold and dark and deep
Sometimes not even sure if we could make it out alive together

And if it wasn’t for God’s mercy and His grace
There’s no way we would be standing in this place
But because He has been faithful
Every step along the way
Here we are together, together

And if it wasn’t for God’s mercy and His grace
There’s no way we would be standing in this place
But because He has been faithful
Every step along the way
Here we are together, together
