Finally

Sunday, November 2 David and I will celebrate 17 years of marriage. 17 YEARS! It seems unbelievable. After some really bad relationships, I FINALLY let myself believe that David was for real. I feel more thankful than ever that our marriage has lasted this long and that we are still in love. Not only are we in love but I like him too! I have never seen a man work so hard for his family, never complain, and still help around the house. He keeps going when I would just fall apart. He is a man of God and I am so proud to be his wife. I stumbled on this song by Fergie while watching Regis and Kelly one day. Thank you sweetie for making my Cinderella dream come true. Can't wait for Stoney River on Sunday!

"Like an apple tree among the trees of the forest, so is my beloved among the young men. In his shade I took great delight and sat down, and his fruit was sweet to my taste. He has brought me to his banquet hall and his banner over me is love." Song of Solomon 2.3-4



Finally

Ever since I was a baby girl I had a dream
Cinderella theme, crazy as it seems
Always knew that deep inside that there would come a day
When I would have to way, make so many mistakes

I couldn't comprehend as I watched it unfold
This classic story told I left it in the cold
Walking through an open door that led me back to you
Each one unlocking more of the truth


I finally stopped tripping on my youth
I finally got lost inside of you
I finally know that I needed to grow
And finally my maze has been solved


Finally
Now my destiny can begin
Though it will have a different set
Something strange and new is happening


Finally
Now my life doesn't seem so bad
It's the best that I've ever had
Give my love to him finally


I remember the beginning you already knew
I acted like a fool, just trying to be cool
Fronting like it didn't matter, I just ran away
On another face, was lost in my own space


Found what it's like to hurt selfishly
Scared to give of me, afraid to just believe
I was in a jealous, insecure, pathetic place
Stumbled through the nets that I had made


Finally got out of my own way
I've finally started living for today
I finally know, I needed to grow
And finally know that it must be so


Finally
Now my destiny can begin
Though we will have a different set
Something strange and new is happening


Finally
Now my life doesn't seem so bad
It's the best that I've ever had
Gave my love to him finally


Finally, finally


Finally
Now my destiny can begin
Though it will have a different set
Something beautiful is happening, is happening


Finally
Now my life doesn't seem so bad
It's the best that I've ever had
Give my love to him finally


Oh, finally, finally, finally
