Everything I Do

We were married in August of 1992, so the song I’m about to quote wasn’t nerdy back then.

“(Everything I Do) I Do It For You”

Look into my eyes – you will see
What you mean to me.
Search your heart, search your soul
And when you find me there you’ll search no more.

Don’t tell me it’s not worth tryin’ for.
You can’t tell me it’s not worth dyin’ for.
You know it’s true:
Everything I do, I do it for you.

Look into your heart – you will find
There’s nothin’ there to hide.
Take me as I am, take my life.
I would give it all, I would sacrifice.

Don’t tell me it’s not worth fightin’ for
I can’t help it, there’s nothin’ I want more
You know it’s true:
Everything I do, I do it for you, oh, yeah.

There’s no love like your love
And no other could give more love.
There’s nowhere unless you’re there
All the time, all the way, yeah.

Look into your heart, baby…

Oh, you can’t tell me it’s not worth tryin’ for.
I can’t help it, there’s nothin’ I want more.

Yeah, I would fight for you, I’d lie for you,
Walk the wire for you, yeah, I’d die for you.

You know it’s true:
Everything I do, oh, I do it for you.

Everything I do, darling.
You will see it’s true.
You will see it’s true.
Yeah!
Search your heart and your soul
You can’t tell it’s not worth dying for
I’ll be there
I’d walk the fire for you
I’d die for you
Oh, yeah.
I’m going all the time, all the way.

I remember before the wedding my reaction to My Bride choosing the song. Seriously? That song is lame. Yeah, I had dickish tendencies back then too.

Looking back, all these years later, I see what a tremendous choice she had made. Those lyrics didn’t describe OUR marriage, however. It described her level of participation.

That song has been playing in my mind over the past 3 days. Today it has been playing loudly. Here’s another example of God speaking to me. “Learn the lessons, stay focused and partner with me” is what He keeps saying.

The recovery community speaks frequently of triggers. My experience with triggers has been astonishingly negative. The experiences of My Bride have been worse. Today I learned there are positive triggers as well.

There are NO mysteries here.
Learn the lessons
Stay focused
Partner with God
