You know how I do.

let the struggle and the joy begin

Written By: Colleen - Apr• 29•11

There used to be nothing in common
There used to be nothing to share
It used to be ‘sit by the window
and stare at what used to be there’

It used to be lonely in numbers
Impossibly weak on my feet
When the game starts and one person’s left out
It used to be me…

Oh, but that was then and (he) is now
I once was lost with (him) am found
On that early April morning
Water falling from the sky
The sun is breaking, fills my eyes
Life has changed without a warning…

I trust my love, I trust myself, I trust the love of someone else
I trust that I will get what I’ve been hoping, waiting for
The prison walls are crashing down

As winter dies without a sound
On this early April Morning
Let the struggle end, the joy begin
It’s true it’s love I’m falling in…

-Brendan James, “Early April Morning”

I just cannot believe the day is finally here.  I pray that God will guide Jay and me through our marriage during good times and bad times and will continue to lead us down the right path in our lives, just as He did when He led us to each other.

Next time I update this site, I will be Mrs. Colleen Glatfelter!
