The other thing he did was to play a song that we both used to like - "Right Here Waiting for You" by Richard Marx. Tim and I met in the Philippines and we got engaged before he came back to the US. After that we wrote to each other every day and we talked on the phone once a month. This is a time when an hour of phone call to the Philippines would cost him two hundred dollars. There were no such things as cell phones, emails, internet, Facebook, etc. We wrote and we sent tapes to each other. This song was one of our favorites because it described our relationship to the point. J
Anniversaries are milestones. They reflect the distance we've traveled together. It is a time to reflect on the past year or decade of life together. Tim and I made it this far through God's grace. We can say that we face a future that is not like the past as no two years are ever the same. We will have a child in college. Life will be really different. The children in the house will be reduced to two and probably our finances will be interesting. :) We will have to brace ourselves to the One who does not change - God. He is our only hope; he will renew our strength. With His grace we will soar on wings like eagles; we will run and not grow weary; we will walk and not be faint.
