Friends, I will be dedicating the next 3 blogs to the 3 weeks leading up to our first Marriage Retreat. I got a little carried away when putting together a playlist to set the mood for love. But the lyrics say it all, so I thought why not “Share the love songs”? Read the words and grow. But then go and download the song to hear the inspiration again and again. Then you can hum along to the tune of a stronger marriage.

“When I say I Do” – Matthew West

There must be a God, I believe it’s true.
‘Cause I can see His love, when I look at you.
And he must have a plan for this crazy life.
Because He brought you here and placed you by my side.
Chorus: And I have never been so sure of anything before
Like I am in this moment here with you

Now for better or for worse
Are so much more than only Words
And I pray everyday will be the proof

That I mean what I say when I say ‘I do’
Yeah
I mean what I Say when I say ‘I do’


You see these hands you hold, will always hold you up

When the strength you have just ‘aint strong enough

And what tomorrow brings, only time will tell

But I will stand by you in sickness and in health


Cause I have never been so sure of anything before

Like I am in this moment here with you
And now ‘for better or for worse’
Are so much more than only words

And I pray every day will be the proof

That I mean what I say when I say ‘I do’

Yeah I mean what I say when I say


Take my hand and take this ring

And know that I will always love you through anything.
And as the years march on like a beating heart

I will live these words ’til death do us part’


Cause I have never been so sure of anything before

Like I am in this moment here with you

And now for better or for worse

Are so much more than only words

And I pray everyday will be the proof

That I mean what I say when I say ‘I do’

Yeah I mean what I say when I say ‘I do’

“I Will Be Here” – Steven Curtis Chapman

Tomorrow morning if you wake up 

And the sun does not appear, 

I, I will be here.
If in the dark we lose sight of love 

Hold my hand and have no fear, 

‘Cause I, I will be here.
I will be here

When you feel like being quiet, 

When you need to speak your mind I will listen, 

And I will be here, 

When the laughter turns to crying

Through the winnin’, losin’, and tryin’, 

We’ll be together, 

‘Cause, I will be here.


Tomorrow morning if you wake up 

And the future is unclear, 

I, I will be here.

As sure as seasons were made for change, 

Our lifetimes were made for years 

So, I, I will be here.


I will be here, 

So you can cry on my shoulder

When the mirror tells us we’re older I will hold you, 

And I will be here, 

To watch you grow in beauty
And tell you all the things you are to me, 

‘Cause, I will be here.


I will be true to the promise I have made 

To you and to the One Who gave you to me


And just as sure as seasons are made for change, 

Our lifetimes are made for these years, 

So I, I will be here, 

We’ll be together, 

‘Cause I will be here.
