No matter how Christ-centered our relationships may or may not be, it’s always important to remember whothe Creator of Love is. It’s important to remember to love God above all things and above everyone, because He is Love. Never lose sight of who loved you first. He planned you in your mother’s womb and created a purpose for your life. If you are reading this right now, you are on earth for a reason! God knew your face, your heart, your whole being before He created the world. And I know it’s easy to get caught up in the butterflies and even the storms of a relationship, but the love Christ offers us every single day surpasses all those things. In the words of the wise and beautiful Crystalina Evert, "Your relationships should be a reflection of God’s love, not a replacement for it". Trust me, nothing is more beautiful than seeing God’s hands touch a relationship.. I see it in the beautiful and successful marriages and relationships of many of my loved ones. Put Christ in the center of your relationship and He’ll use it for His glory. I hope this song reminds you of how much God loves you and that He has infinitely BEAUTIFUL plans for you! =)
He could give me diamonds, but you’re the treasure that I seek
He could whisper sweet nothings, but you’re the voice in my dreams
He could sing me a song, but you’re the melody
He could give me a home, but you’re my safety
Nothing compares to you
No one compares to you
I have found a love that’s true
I belong to you
He could give me roses, but you’re the earth the rain the Son
He could kiss me softly, but you’re the maker of love
He could give me his heart, but you’re the beat within mine
He could lay down beside me, but you lay down your life
You are the heavens
You are eternity
Is it true that you wanna marry me?
Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision, you have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you could ever part. Because it is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being “in love” which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, and we had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossom had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two.
Does this look familiar? This is Harbor Blvd. prior to the Happiest Place on Earth. Today, California Adventure and Disneyland would be on the left, the road would be three lanes wider, and numerous hotels and restaurants would be on the right. It’s pretty cool to see the beginning of Walt’s dream :)

Lord you search me and you know me
When I sit and when I stand
You understand my thoughts from afar
Behind me and before me
Your hand is there to guide me
Too wonderful for me
This knowledge is beyond my reach
Before a word is on my tongue
You know it all before it has begun
I praise you God
That I am fearfully,
Where can I hide from your presence?
Where can I flee from your face?
If I climb to the heavens you are there
If I lie in the grave you are there
If I take the wings of the dawn
Or dwell at the sea’s furthest end
Even there your hand would guide me
Your right hand hold me fast
For you night is as the day
For you light and darkness are the same
I praise you God
That I am fearfully
As in the depths of the earth
You formed my inmost being
My very self you knew
My bones were not hidden from you
Knit me in my mother’s womb
I praise you God
That I am fearfully
…Just in case you weren’t informed of how precious you are in the eyes of God. =)
I will meet you at the table; I will meet you in His heart; in the company of angels; in the place where all things start. We receive each others presence, we are all made one in Him. Though I cannot see your face, I will see you in the Eucharist. Come and meet me at the table, come and meet me in His heart. We’ll be singing with the angels, each man playing his own part. In a symphony of praises, we will join our song with His. Though I cannot hear your voice, we’ll be speaking in the Eucharist. Do not be afraid, do not be afraid, do not be afraid. When we gather at the table, we are closer than our breath; even nearer than the angels when we touch His very flesh.Dwelling in each others presence, I will hold you close inside. Every soul in Heaven and earth now is present in the Body of Christ. Do not be afraid, do not be afraid, do not be afraid. We are pilgrims on the journey. We are headed for the throne. Carried on the wings of angels, oh, we do not walk alone. All our prayers we lay before Him and His grace will pave the way to lead us to our one true Home, where we’ll see each other face-to-face. Do not be afraid, do not be afraid, do not be afraid. I will meet you, I will hear you, I will hold you, I’ll receive you, I will see you in the Eucharist.
"Every long lost dream led me to where you are.
Others who broke my heart; they were like Northern stars pointing me on my way into your loving arms.
This much I know is true— that God blessed the broken road that led me straight to you.”
