4

Today is Jonathan's and my fourth anniversary. I've set this to post. I'm on my way home from Texas today after having been with my parents for the past week. We've never been apart this long and no doubt (as I'm setting this to post a week in advance) it'll have been a horrifically long week apart.

As I'm coming home, I just want to say HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to the man I love most in this whole world. You know, I can work up words for the deep emotions I feel about books or movies but no words are coming that would adequately express how much I care for Jonathan. So we'll do it with music (because he loves music).

Happy anniversary to my ballroom dancing partner. (Yup. We ballroom dance. Our favorite dance is the waltz and although this particular song makes for a fast waltz, it's always been my favorite song to dance with Jonathan because the running phrase is true.) It IS you, Jonathan . . .



(The following is a picture of us doing a tango on the beach when we were engaged.)


I'm not a classical music fan (which I've stated before) and he is. This is as far as I go -- Andrea Bocelli. Basically what he's saying here is even when his love isn't with him, she really is. And wherever his love is and is going is where he wants to be. Yeah, same here.



If I were picking a musical to express my feelings, I'd have to go with Cathy Rigby's Peter Pan (which is a big hit in this house). Tiger Lily says to Peter Pan: "Peter Pan is the sun, the moon and the stars!" to which Peter replies, "Yes, I know."

Jonathan . . . you are my sun and my moon and my stars. Well, you come right after God which is pretty good in the pecking order. ;)

And speaking of musicals (of which we both typically tend to be a fan) - here's one from one of the first YOU introduced me to - Dr. Jekyle & Mr. Hyde.



(I think someone like you + someone like me makes a pretty dynamic duo. And nothing WILL ever be the same.)

And then here's the song we had sung at our wedding.



Not unto us, o Lord, not unto us, but to Your name give glory
Psalm 115:1.


And I know we both still mean that.

Happy 4th Anniversary!
Loved your post...choice of songs.
How fun that you guys ballroom dance.

I have to say... I love the song "It is You" and "Con Te Partiro" is one of my favorite Andrea Bocelli Songs.

Hey, do I get to comment on this one? :-)

Happy 4th anniversary to you, too. Proverbs 12:4 says, "A wife of noble character is her husband's crown." I run out of words trying to describe the way you have been an incredible blessing and the way our marriage has transformed and created amazing things.

I know that "A prudent wife is from the LORD," and I thank Him every day for you. I love you!

Congratulations and happy anniversary!! I love that you shared all the videos and interwove your thoughts with the songs, etc. I'm jealous that you guys ballroom dance. I don't think Steady Eddie would go for that here. ; ) May God grant you many, many, many more years together!!!

A belated Happy Anniversary to you!

Lovely collection of songs here! That Andrea Bocelli song is one of my all-time favorites. I'd not ever heard of the Jekylle and Hyde musical, but that song is lovely.

LOVE that picture of the tango on the beach!
