Happy 10th Anniversary, Dave & Tara!

10-amazing years.  Praising God!  Smiling big!  :)

A sweet, really sweet wedding, so joyous, so full of love.

dave and tara weddingA wedding I will always recall with great joy.  I shared a little about it last week, but my favorite part was when the bride and groom served communion to all their guests.  I had never seen that done before or since.  The song was, “I Pour My Love on You.” It was amazing.

Like oil upon your feet ~ Like wine for you to drink

Like water from my heart ~ I pour my love on you

If praise is like perfume ~ I’ll lavish mine on you

Till every drop is gone ~ I’ll pour my love on you

I think the fact that you not only speak on dating at youth conferences, but also still {actually date} is a really good thing.dave and tara dating

And now your love is displayed in and through your sons.

And oh, how I love those boys, a double scoop of wonder and delight, with kisses sprinkled freely!  You’re not only good friends and lovers, but amazing parents, too.

To My Valentine


Happy Valentine’s Day, David Allen Rhoades, the love of my life!

You have been a wonderful friend and lover and husband and now an incredible grandfather, too.  I sang you a song for Valentine’s Day (click the link below).  In retrospect, I should’ve picked something a little easier, perhaps with more like a 3-note range?…  I am definately not “up to” a Broadway tune, but it is done now – for all to know:

I will never leave you.  I know you too well (through all of life’s stages) to let you go.  My head and heart are full of our memories, our life – things no one else can ever share.  I love you, Dave.

Be mine forever! Jeanie
