God Gave Me You

“I’ve been a walking heartache
I’ve made a mess of me
The person that I’ve been lately
Ain’t who I wanna be

But you stay here right beside me
And watch as the storm blows through
And I need you

‘Cause God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt
And for when I think I lost my way
There are no words here left to say; it’s true
God gave me you

There’s more here than what we’re seeing
A divine conspiracy
That you, an angel lovely
Could somehow fall for me
You’ll always be love’s great martyr
And I’ll be the flattered fool
And I need you

God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt
And for when I think I lost my way
There are no words here left to say; it’s true
God gave me you

On my own I’m only
Half of what I could be
I can’t do without you
We are stitched together
And what love has tethered
I pray we never undo

‘Cause God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt
And for when I think I lost my way
There are no words here left to say; it’s true
God gave me you…
He gave me you.”

(Blake Shelton’s God Gave Me You)

I’m kinda glad I never imagined what my wedding was going to be like when I was little. My tastes and preferences way back when have changed so drastically from when I was little and now…I want our wedding to be something representative of what my fiance and I want now, not what we happened to like 15 years ago. Even 2 years ago, my tastes would’ve been different. How do I know this without a shadow of a doubt? I had a dress picked out about 2 years ago, never saw it in person, but I knew in my head exactly what I wanted it to look like based on a description from a book. Then, when I went dress shopping for the real thing after I became engaged, well, let’s just say, I can’t imagine ever wearing any other dress for the wedding, and yet it has very little (if any) similarities to the one in my head…
