He was walking her home, holding her hand :)

Have I mentioned my favorite radio station in D.C. on this blog before? I think so. But, if not, it's a Contemporary Christian Station, WGTS 91.9. I like to call it my "gospel" station and I have truly fallen in love with it. Finally a radio station where I don't have to monitor the songs for the "little ears" I sometimes have in the car with me... or even my own ears! Yes, occasionally you get the preacher on there and I can sometimes listen to what he says... but mostly it's just uplifting, positive, family-friendly music! The make-you-feel-good kind of stuff!

Well, I was in the kitchen cooking this week and this song came on the radio. Normally, I don't really pay attention to the words and it's just background for me when doing chores in the house, but this song struck me and I had tears in my eyes by the end of it!

Here's the link on youtube
I highly recommend watching this on youtube
with the music and the pictures... adds to the effect!

(oh my gosh - I am crying again listening to it!)

He was walking HER HOME
by Mark Schultz

Looking back, he sees it all.
It was her first date the night he came to call
And her dad said "Son, have her home on time, and promise me you'll never leave her side."
He took her to a show in town,
And he was ten feet off the ground.
He was walking her home, holding her hand
Oh the way she smiled, it stole the breath right out of him
Down that old road, with the stars up above
He remembers where he was the night he fell in love
He was walking her home.
Ten more years, in a waiting room.
And half-past one, was when the doctor said
"Come in and meet your son."
And his knees went weak, when he saw his wife
She was smiling as she said "He's got your eyes."
And as she slept he held her tight
His mind went back to that first night.
And wandered through the best days of her life
Sixty year together and he never left her side.
A nursing home, at eighty-five
And the doctor said it could he her last night.
And the nurse said "Oh, should we tell him now? Or should he wait until the morning to find out...?"
But when they checked her room that night,
He was laying by her side.
He was walking her home, holding her hand,
Oh, the way she smiled when he said "This is not the end."
Just for a while, they were eighteen
And she was still more beautiful to him than anything.
He was walking her home. (x2)
Looking back, he sees it all.
It was her first date the night he came to call.

Now, that is one of my top goals in this life.
To have a marriage like that.
I have to keep the HOPE and FAITH
that this goal is still attainable!
