God gave me You for the ups and downs

Besides nature, one of my favourite things to capture in photos are couple shots. There is something beautiful about taking pictures of two people who belong together.

Young couples who think that they along exist in the world, or old couples who still love each other.

Relationships can be gifts from God. When we seek God's will in finding our significant other, we will find that Two are better than One. As I view the couples in my new church family, I can see how God can draw upon the strengths of both people to further their personal growth and further God's kingdom. On the other hand, I know how long these relationships will last on earth. While some naturally dissolve, others are faced with physical separate due to distance or death. Let us treasure those who are around us while they are still here. They are a gift from God, let us know demand to get our needs met but really try to love the other person and meet their needs and help them grow.

I don't know if my other half is out there somewhere, but for now, I am thankful that I can see love around me. And I hope that I can be a strength for other single people out there, and pick them up when they are down.

Finally, Happy birthday daddy. Always treasured, never forgotten.


Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

New International Version (NIV)
Two are better than one,
    because they have a good return for their labor:
10 If either of them falls down,
    one can help the other up.
But pity anyone who falls
    and has no one to help them up.
11 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.
    But how can one keep warm alone?
12 Though one may be overpowered,
    two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

There's more here than what were seeing,

A divine conspiracy,

That you, an angel lovely
C#m*          B*
Could somehow fall for me.

Bridge:

On my own I'm only
                         E
Half of what I could be--I

Can't do without you.
                           Aadd9
We are stitched together,
                            E
And what love has tethered--I
                B*
Pray we never undo.
