Two years ago...


It was like a fairy-tale, and she was the princess 
Her bright red hair, her pure white dress-- 
She was smiling as she looked into his eyes




His face lit up as he soaked it in
It was the day that he had dreamed of
Happily ever after was just about to begin




You wove their lives together
What was two had now become one
Love was all around them, a new journey just begun




And I saw You there
In the midst of all the joy it was so clear
Your love was all around
I saw You there

--------------------------------

A dark suit replaced the white one
His smile turned to tears
But in spite of all the pain--something stayed the same




The nights felt like forever
The sun seemed hid from view
And though life was changing, Your promises remained




There was a Rock that never moved
Arms that were so strong, 
Wings that covered me--with a love that knew no bounds



And I saw You there
In midst of all the pain You were so clear
Your love was all around
I saw You there

-------------


"Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in Whom I trust."
Psalm 91:1-2

Thinking of you and remembering it when it happened... God has a plan for everything even though it might be hard to see at first...
