what's forever?

I love early morning workouts and honestly enjoy getting up before the sun.  I am to just get so much done everyday.  But I especially like waking up early because that means I can see Casey before he leaves for work & school.  And hearing him say "I love you forever!"  This morning I was thinking about the song "Marry Me" by Train.
"Forever could never be long enough for me.                                            To feel like I've had long enough with you."
It is a fairly popular song right now and I hear it often on the radio.  But today, Casey took the time to explain forever.  And now I think I like this song even more! :)

Forever is not dependent on the shortcomings of man but rather the perfections of God.  Forever can't fall and break (this would be in reference to my computer yesterday--fortunately, Casey fixed it!!!).  It doesn't require the right combination of mouse clicks.  Forever is not based on the amount of coupons you find or money saved.  It does not require dinner to come out of the oven perfect (last night we got impatient and ended up eating cold enchiladas--thank you microwave!!)

Forever is an accumulation of the little things (is it any wonder we are counseled to pray, read our scriptures, go to church, etc so often).  Forever is looking past those little things that drive you crazy.  It is learning how to communicate and realizing that somethings are better off not being said.  It is constant support through the good and the bad.  Forever is where I want to be with my best friend.

I am SOOOOO grateful that on our wedding day, we never heard the words "till death do you part" (or however that phrase goes) but rather "married for time and all eternity!"  I'm thankful for my faith.  I'm love that death is not the end of life but rather a new beginning.  My favorite part is knowing we really can be together forever because we were married in the right place with the right authority.  And the Lord has promised that by our worthiness, we will be sealed together forever!

That is just the sweetest thing ever! I am so glad that you reached the biggest dream and married the man that will walk you to the celestial kingdom, hand in hand. And that you can enjoy the purest of love and happiness while here on this earth.
