I'd Do It All Over Again

A few years ago, Scot was asked to speak at a Valentine Banquet and I was asked to sing. They wanted a "love" song. I am not morbid, but I handle funeral songs much better than wedding songs. They are just easier songs to sing. I get literally sick when I sing at weddings. I've pretty much sworn off from singing at weddings. Back to my story.... I searched and searched for a song to sing at the banquet, and about 2 days before the event, I sat down and decided just to write my own song. And it goes like this:


I'd do it all over again. I'd do it all over again.
I'd be your bride, I'd stand by your side.
Yes, I'd do it all over again.

1. We've been together for many years.
We've had our joys and we've shed some tears.
Knowing now all I didn't know then.
I'd still do it all over again.

2. I sang to you on our wedding day.
Whither thou goest, that's where I'd stay.
Not even knowing where our steps would end.
I'd do it all over again.

3. When our time down here shall come to pass.
Already it's gone by seems too fast.
No matter what comes our way til then,
I'd do it all over again.

4. I thank God for the good times,
I thank Him for the bad.
I thank Him for all the precious years we've had.
And when we get to heaven, I know I'll say,
No regrets!
I'd do it again.

Ruth 1:16-17
And Ruth said, Entreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God: Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried: the Lord do so to me, and more also, if aught but
death part thee and me.

I have a smile on my face...just reading your blog. So great to come across another pw and someone who enjoys "black coffee"! When you go into Starbucks, do they repeat back to you, " sugar?" That's right just coffee...that's all I want! hahah

What a beautiful song you have written, you were given a gift from our creative God!

So, I wanted to thank you for your sweet compliments of my heart pin on Becky's blog...she is a doll!

God bless and continue to encourage others and lift up His Name!

So glad to "meet" you,
Blessings, Lilly
