Jarvis's Ramblings

8-26-95

Today is my fifteenth wedding anniversary. It’s hard to believe that it has been fifteen fantastic years with Julie. Not that there haven’t been rough times…there have…but you hold on and grow through those times. If you fight FOR your marriage (instead of just fighting) you end up closer in the end. I am glad to have committed to spending the rest of my life with Julie…I’m looking forward to the next 50 years!

On our tenth anniversary I took a song by Steven Curtis Chapman, modified the lyrics and sang it to Julie as an anniversary present. The original song was titled “11-6-64” and was written by SCC for his wife’s birthday. That song was included on SCC’s “All About Love” album which was essentially 16 love songs…most of which he wrote for his wife. I am indebted to him for that album. Until now, only a few family members and friends have seen this song.

8-26-95

8-26-95 the sun shone a whole lot brighter

Than ever it had before, smiling down on me

Around 11 am both hands of time stopped turning

And you came waltzing in, to change my world for good

And you were all that I could see, and when you looked at me

Everything just faded

And I, I know I smiled and prayed

Harder on that day

Cause my whole world was changing on

8-26-95, we both said “I do”

And suddenly living life meant so much more

On the day that we were wed.

And I, I woke up with the dew; I was thinking of you

And all that was transpiring

Well, I, I know the sky was blue

And all the world looked new

Cause everything was changing on

8-26-95, we both said “I do”

And suddenly living life meant so much more

On the day that we were wed

8-26-95

Suddenly living life meant so much more

On the day that we were wed.
