Another Man in My Life - Part 1 of our 10 Yr Anniv Series

Today we're going to begin a new series... it is the official one month countdown now until the day we've been married for TEN YEARS!!!!! {Can I get a wahwah?!?!}


~~~~~~

When we were courting {we didn't really date}, I made it clear to Tim that Jesus was my first love and that he would have to come after him. Tim totally got that and it wasn't an issue, and it was also true of him. But I knew it needed to be clear from moment one, that no guy was going to knock me off my path of being close to the Lord.

I think all of us Christians can attest to the fact that we struggle, and we don't always in every moment keep Jesus first in our lives even though we know we should. So while my goal is to always keep Jesus first, I don't always succeed at it. Nonetheless, it is what I strive for.

When we got married, I was in a stage where I loved sign language. I'd used it a little bit, just by teaching myself and learning from friends. A good childhood friend of mine knew sign language pretty well. I thought it would be beautiful to have her sign to this song on stage as part of our prelude during our wedding ceremony. And it was really beautiful. I'm so glad I had her do it and I wish I could share the video with you!

I couldn't find the lyrics online anywhere so I typed them myself. I apologize for any mistakes and for the one spot where I couldn't catch the words.

Another Man by Wes King
Album: Sticks and Stones
(c) 1993, Reunion Records

God I love her
Don’t need no lightning,
no thunder
Just always knew you’d let me
know when it was right

I know she cares for me
I’d have to be blind not to see
The love that strikes me blind
Is love that gives me sight

There’s another man in her life
Another’s love stronger than mine
There’s another love in her life
So complete, so benign
There’s another man in her life

He’s all she talks about
Her love for him is so devout
And when she hears his name
Her eyes reflect his light

There’s another man in her life
Another’s love stronger than mine
There’s another love in her life
So complete, so benign
There’s another man in her life

This love, this other man
He holds [something I couldn’t catch]
His care makes ours make sense
Cuz it’s Jesus, He’s the other man

Now there’s another love in our lives
So complete, so divine 
There’s another love in our lives
Stronger than hers, stronger than mine
There’s another man in our lives
So complete, so divine 
There’s another man in our lives

God I love her
Don’t need no lightning, no thunder


You can listen to it on Rhapsody. It's song #10 Another Man.
