I took a pebble in my dream
and dropped it in water deep,
and watched the ripples going out,
teaching me a lesson to keep.
The widest ring came so quickly,
it was the very first one,
and after it came many more
and then they were all done.
It reminded me so of our sweet love
a gift that is ours to keep,
God dropped that pebble into our hearts,
knowing what a rich harvest it would reap.
The ripples formed inside our hearts,
the first one placed us both inside;
both encircled by His love,
you, forever groom, and me, forever bride.
Each ripple circle after that
were the rings marking off each day;
and widening out, they traveled far
touching others along the way.
At the center of all of these,
is our love so precious, ever new,
that God created just for us,
so every ring would say I LOVE YOU!
Just as each little ring is a circle,
that ends up where it starts,
I know that our love is like that too,
never-ending, too strong to come apart!
I thank God that all our ripples,
are contained in His ripple from above;
and I rejoice that He's made all my dreams
come true, especially our love!
I watch the ripples spreading out
each one holding wonders anew;
and my heart overflows with wonder and joy,
that it is so true - oh how much I LOVE YOU!!!
