Music has been a mainstay in our relationship since our dating days. We can walk through a store and hear a love song from the 80’s, and we are immediately transported to a walk on the beach, a ride on the Blue Ridge Parkway, or just an evening at home in our cozy trailer.
Music has travelled with us through all these years even to today. Recently while walking through Hobby Lobby on a mission for my wife, I spied a perpetual flip calendar on sale. Now, if you are like us, we needed another flip calendar like we needed another game request on Facebook. But this one sparked a musical interest as it has a portion of an old hymn for each day.
Last night as I was cleaning up the supper dishes, Denise began to sing the song for the day. “And He walks with me, and He talks with me . . . .” I took the lead and she harmonized. I struggled to complete it as tears came to my eyes. What a special moment it was. How wonderful to be walking together and talking together with the One Who makes marriage so grand. How blessed that we can sing the same stanzas together. How precious to sing and make music together on this journey of life toward Home.
