"One of Two"


Gary Chapman - Shelter - One of Two
(by Gary Chapman & Amy Grant)

"Jill, so in love
She can't think, think enough of him
She's in love with Jim
Jim, he's the same
Just the thought of her name brings a thrill
He's in love with Jill

Chorus:
And though the road of life is sometimes hard
It begins and ends in their front yard
They're just glad to have the others face in their view
And with God adding it all up
One and one is more than just enough
'cause in love He does something only God can do
He makes one of two
He makes one of two

Early on, we are taught
One and one is not a lot, that's true
But it's more than two
Less and greater than, they reverse in God's hand, they do
One is more than two

And though the road of life can seem so long
It moves fast if you just move along
And it's better if you've got someone next to you
And with God adding it all up
One and one is more than just enough
'cause in love He does something only God can do
He makes one of two
He makes one of two

As long as God's adding all up
One and one is more than just enough
'cause in love He does something only God can do
He makes one of two
I want to be one of two
Amy, we are one of two"

For once, I don't really have a lot to say! Can you believe it?! In 1997, Christopher graduated from CFNI, and we moved into Alumni housing (on our 1st anniversary~how romantic!), where we only had to pay $400 a month for rent. {Crazy cheap, huh?! In hindsight, maybe we should have stayed there longer to save up some money!} That summer was great. We took the youth on a mission trip to Mexico, and our worship band got to travel for a week to Kansas, Iowa & Wisconsin. Chris was still working as the youth pastor at our church in Midlothian, but he also had to get a “real” job, too. He became a collector (yikes) at a company that was eventually bought out by Citicorp. It was nice, because I didn't have to be the one to “bring home the bacon” anymore, and we could start planning for a baby. That may seem quick, but being a mom was the only thing I ever wanted to be when I grew up (besides a princess!), so I was ready! Stay tuned for the next installment as soon as I get a chance...



[Update 7/20/09: For those of you who are here from MM&M, I don't mean to bore you by having already completed the story of our meeting/dating/wedding! But, next Monday is our anniversary, & I wanted to still be participating at that time! I'll be doing a final MM&M post with the links to posts of our whole story that I did last Fall. Thanks so much for stopping by!]
