Do you listen to certain songs JUST because you love the lyrics? Those lyrics mean something to you personally and you can personally relate on every level? I do. And I love finding those songs.
When we had our wedding I chose ALL of the important songs. Before I came out to walk down the aisle I chose "Mama's Song" By Carrie Underwood to play for my mom (who walked me down the aisle). Our first dance was a song by Keith Urban. Matt's song with his mom was "My Wish" by Rascal Flatts. I LOVE this song. It was SO perfect for Matt. He has been through so much.
Sometimes I tell Matt that I don't like that he was married 2 times, and has a child with either ex wife. But then, as soon as it spills from my lips I realize that without him going through those times, him and I probably would not have met. Remember that song by Garth? Thank God for UNanswered prayers? That's an awesome thing to think about. There are SO many things that I thank God for NOT answering. He really knows whats best, and when and where to place people/things in your life.
The one song I think about when I think about Matt's past "life" is "Bless the Broken Road" By Rascal Flatts. Matt and I both have been on broken roads our entire life. This should have been our first dance song, but no one would have "got" it.
I am so grateful to God for giving me this broken road, and for not answering some of my prayers.
God blessed the broken road that led me straight to you... LOVE!
