The One With the Wednesday Wedding




This one goes out to Darrel and Janna on their wedding day...





{Note: I have been very disappointed with the mp3 quality of Hipcast, that hosts my mp3s. I am playing around with a couple of options. For now, listen to this song from the playlist at left. You will find the quality MUCH better.}

The Moments Between

In my life
Seems I’m always the one
Who is holding the line
And that’s perfectly fine
I can be the strong one.

But when
Eternity shows in the eyes
Of my children,
I realize there must be
Something more out there for me.

Grace
Can be measured in the moments.
A hundred—no, thousands
That flicker like fireflies
And light the dark.

But in between
Those moments
Are minutes
And hours, and days, even years
Of walking alone,
A single set of footprints
In the dust

Until I saw you
And I knew that you were the answer
Just you
The strong one for babes of your own
And I swear,
If it’s the last thing I do I’ll be brave
Find a way to be
Forever with you.
Because there in your eyes
In the touch of your hand
I see you’re the one who can share
All the moments
Between.

All the moments
Between.
I saw you;
Got caught up in the vision
And realized I knew you
From somewhere or sometime
We used to be.

You
No sound and no motion
Just looking inside of me
Reminding me I’d just been
Marking time

Until I saw you
You were the answer
Just you
The strong one for babes of your own
And I swear,
If it’s the last thing I do I’ll be brave,
Find a way to be
Forever with you.
Because there in your eyes
In the touch of your hand
In the way that you move
In the song of your voice
I see you’re the one who can share
All the moments
Between.

All the moments
Between.

All of the moments
Between.

I want a CD too. :) That is such a beautiful song. Who is it that you have singing it? V I'm so impressed with your talent! I just noticed your 'original songs' over there on your side bar, is that new? Gonna go listen to the ones I've missed.

Absolutely beautiful song for couples young and old. How splendid to be at the fresh beginning of the journey of marriage. I'm anxiously awaiting the CD. And who are the singers? Just perfect. Thank you V.

The singer is one of our favorite returned missionaries, Garry Pfile. Should have put that in the post. Oops! :)

I married into Shelley's family 4 years ago and this recording is only the second time I've ever heard her play the cello!

The song is beautiful. I listed to some other things too and really enjoyed them. Thanks for sharing all of it online!
