2 years ago....

Add up you and me
Equals eternity
We're the perfect equation
Like pieces of a puzzle
We know it'll be a struggle
But our love can solve anything

The door was open
You walked right on through
And my heart jumped when it saw you
We have a connection
That money can't buy
And we're on the same line

And I, I love you
And I, I need you

Words can't express
All the feelings I've suppressed
Within my heart

Through these words I'm conveying
Listen to what I'm saying
You're the love of my life

I've never felt a love so strong
We knew it all along

Happiness is what you bring
You mean so much to me
You're all I'll ever need

And when you have to go
Oh how I'll miss you so
Come back soon

I could write a million songs for you
But this one takes the cake
Come what may, sunshine or rain
Our love will never break

Today I make my vow
Right here and right now
To always stay by your side

You're my better part
You'll always have my heart
And the key

And I, I love you
And I, I need you

Two wonderful years have passed and we're still going strong! I love you more than you'll ever know Phil! Thanks for making me the happiest woman in the world! :)

One Day At A Time

I found this poem in some of my Grandma's stuff the other night and loved it, it has helped me so much! I hope it helps you...

"One day at a time, with its failures and fears.
With its hurts and mistakes, with its weakness and tears.
With its portion of pain and its burden of care;
One day at a time we must meet and must bear.

One day at a time to be patient and strong;
To be calm under trial and sweet under wrong;
Then its toiling shall pass and its sorrow shall cease;
It shall darken and die, and the night shall bring peace.

One day at a time-but the day is so long,
And the heart is not brave, and the soul is not strong,
O Thou pitiful Christ, be Thou near all the way;
Give courage and patience and strength for the day.

Swift cometh His answer, so clear and so sweet;
"Yea, I will be with thee, thy troubles to meet;
I will not forget thee, nor fail thee, nor grieve;
I will not forsake thee; I never will leave."

Not yesterday's load we are called on to bear,
Nor the morrow's uncertain and shadowy care;
Why should we look forward or back with dismay?
Our needs, as our mercies, are but for the day.

One day at a time, and the day is His day;
He hath numbered its hours, though they haste or delay.
His grace is sufficient; we walk not alone;
As the day, so the strength that he giveth His own.

We were chosen before we were born!

So last night I was reading the last chapter in the doctrine & covenants section 138 where President Joseph F. Smith recieved a vision about Christ's visit to the spirit world while he was still in the tomb and how he appointed his very elite to go down and preach to the people who had been unworthy to be in His presence. Anyway, verses 53-56 hit me really hard last night and gave me a great idea for a song! It talks about the choice spirits/the elite (all of us) being chosen before we were born to come down and that we were the noble & great ones to be rulers in the church of God and that we recieved our first lessons in the world of spirits and were prepared for our mission here on earth! Then it got me thinking & wondering about who was I before I came to earth? What was I like? How strong and willing was I to follow everything the Father said? So I thought what an amazing idea for a song! It's going to be about me trying to communicate and make a connection with my Spirit. To figure out who I was before I was born so that I can become one with my Spirit and by doing so, be able to fulfill my divine destiny here on earth! Anyway, I'm so excited to get started on this. I just hope that I will be able to find the words to convey this important message!
