Love grows love

One of my favorite Caedmon’s Call songs…it has just really hit a chord for me in this stage of life.  It rings true to me on so many levels.  Each time I hear it (whether randomly or seeking it out) I find myself being grateful for the love that God has given Donald and I for one another, the blessing and awesome responsibility of our precious daughter, and for the hope that He has put in our heart to love the world more purposefully and passionately.

you said to “put on a happy face”
on a high school stage
but I read what you really meant
in your handwriting on a Bible page
you waited like you told me
though we knew it right away,
it took eight and a half more years
to finally say

kissin!
I fell in love with you
and that love became something new
it keeps getting stronger
than we ever could have longed
love keeps growing more lovepage6


when we got the news
we had to call our families
and start painting the room
a nice, bright blue
our vows they started breathing
and they took on flesh and blood
and we held them in our arms
and tasted God was good

I fell in love with you
and that love became something new
it added a name and it added a smile
it keeps getting bigger every further mile
there on your bended knee
we sewed the seeds of our history
they’re coming up stronger
than we ever could have longed
love keeps growing more love

Honeymoon! 118
if love is an echo of the heart
the heart is a canyon
that stretches wild and free
without an end
and breaks through every wall
that holds us in

I’m on the other side of the world
to see what changed you so
my heart breaks with the broken
and it dances with the hope
you told me I would find here
but I could not understand
until I’m walking here beside you
hand in hand…
