I Will Be Here

Sorry for the outage of my posting.  That always seems to happen when I claim to try to make it a daily occurrence...  My absence can be explained by my divulgence into the The Hunger Games trilogy.  It was an excellent set of books--right up my alley with the perfect mixture of suspense, a bit of mystery, and of course a little love.  I began reading them Wednesday night, and just finished the third one about thirty minutes ago.  My house is more of a mess than I would like, and I probably haven't spent as much time in conversation with others as I should have...but if I had a moment to spare, I was reading!  I always do this when I get into any book that I really enjoy--but it's especially bad in a series.  It's like the book is a magnet, and I can't escape it's grip until I finish reading...all of them!  Hunter just laughs at me, thank goodness.

My song for today is "I Will Be Here", sung and written by Steven Curtis Chapman.  It became special to me when my sister used it in her wedding.  Her groom actually recorded himself singing it for her, making it one they will always cherish even more.  The words are so defining for a marriage, and I truly just love that.  I also read his wife, Mary Beth Chapman's book, Choosing to See,  a few years ago.  Another incredible read.  The explanation of why he wrote this song for her and the tenderness they allow you to glimpse through it is just heart touching.  And now, on the tail of reading that ever so popular trilogy, The Hunger Games, I'm even sensing my brain make a connection between it and this song.  The promise of being there for someone, always. 

Hunter is my always.  And I choose to be where he is, always.

Tomorrow morning if you wake up
and the sun does not appear

I will be here
If in the dark, we lose sight of love
Hold my hand, and have no fear
'Cause 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 cryin'
Through the winning, losing and trying
We'll be together
I will be here

Tomorrow morning, if you wake up
And the future is unclear
I will be here
Just as sure as seasons were made for change
Our lifetimes were made for these years
So I will be here

I will be here
And 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
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

Tomorrow morning, if you wake up
And the sun does not appear
I will be here
Oh, I will be here.
