Bless the Broken Road . . .

Today our friend Brent was married to Beth. It is a day he has looked forward to for so many years as he waited on God's grander plan for finding his true love.


The bride's brother-in-law sang "Bless the Broken Road" by Rascal Flatts during the wedding. It was a perfect song for them. Brent has a beautiful voice -- and though he wasn't singing for the guests, he was singing the song to Beth. I could see him singing from my vantage point and was touched by the song ... and his singing it to her (quietly).

God Bless the Broken Road
I set out on a narrow way many years ago
Hoping I would find true love along the broken road
But I got lost a time or two
Wiped my brow and kept pushing through
I couldn't see how every sign pointed straight to you
Every long lost dream lead me to where you are
Others who broke my heart they were like northern stars
Pointing me on my way into your loving arms
This much I know is true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you

I think about the years I spent just passing through
I'd like to have the time I lost and give it back to you
But you just smile and take my hand
You've been there you understand
It's all part of a grander plan that is coming true

Every long lost dream lead me to where you are
Others who broke my heart they were like northern stars
Pointing me on my way into your loving arms
This much I know is true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you




Congratulations Brent & Beth!

love,
