Springtime Indiana.

Springtime Indiana, you are sleeping by my side

Here across the miles we ramble
Past where the road divides

I wish I could tell you...but I just can't find the words

I've never been good with my thoughts
And even worse with my words
But you read like familiar poetry
That I have never heard...

I wish I could tell you...but I just can't find the words

So let's move across the ocean
And pitch a tent stakes wide

You be the one to come after me
And I will be your bride...

I wish I could tell you...but I just can't find the words

I am all at once courageous
I am all at once afraid
It came over me like nightfall
Like a freight train

I can't seem to hold it in
But I can't seem to run away

You came in without notice
And settled all around my heart
Took up residence in all the places
That were vacant and dark...
I wish I could tell you...but I just can't find the words
Springtime Indiana
You are starting to wake
And I am laden with the thoughts
Of everything I mean to say










Even though this verse is inscribed on the inside of my wedding ring, you are far better at living it out than I seem to be.  



Thank you.  Thank you.  
Thank you for two years of rejoicing and praising and fighting and believing and trusting and obeying and sacrificing and laughing and crying and challenging and parenting and working and playing and dreaming and worshiping.

  
The way you have laid down your life to love my weak heart is worship to the King.  



He must be pleased.
