Marriage. God has blessed me with beautiful marriage. Gene has literally shown me what it means to love someone more than yourself and to give with your whole heart and soul. It makes me want to be a better wife and to give to him as much as he gives to me. Not because I owe him for all that he does, but because I want to be that kind of servant in our marriage just as he is to me. Nothing I do for him compares to all that he does for me. There is a line in this song that says “I may never understand why you chose to love me, and I never saw what you saw in me", which I still struggle to understand today. But I do plan to keep the promises I made him, and to do my best to serve him as well as he has served me for 20 plus years. I thank God for Gene every day. I am blessed more than I deserve. And I am thankful. Hear the song "Promises" below.
We'll Always Remember 9/11
In memory of 9/11/01. I wrote this song in 2011 on the 10th Anniversary of 9/11. After listening to many documentaries about people who survived that fateful day, the one thing I heard over and over was, "We just don't want anyone to ever forget." I was so baffled by that statement. How could they think that we would ever forget? I will ALWAYS remember 9/11. The nation will always remember 9/11.
I heard another statement from another survivor who said "Those on the outside only saw the bad of 9/11. But those of us on the inside saw the good. People helping people."
We may never understand the evil that came on that day, but through the evil, there was good. Goodness shown through. Love was given. Kindness shared and heroes were born.
My heart and prayers are with all those who lived through that day, and for everyone who lost someone dear to them.
May God's everlasting Love and Comfort always be with you.
"We'll Always Remember ~ 9/11"
