Listen to Our Hearts..

How do you explain,
How do you describe,
A love that goes from east to west,
And runs as deep as it is wide?

You know all our hopes
Lord, you know all our fears
And words cannot express the love we feel
But we long for You to hear

So listen to our hearts
 Hear our spirits sing 
 A song of praise that flows 
 From those You have redeemed 
 We will use the words we know
To tell You what an awesome God You are
But words are not enough
To tell You of our love
So listen to our hearts

If words could fall like rain
From these lips of mine
And if I had a thousand years
I would still run out of time
So if You listen to my heart
Every beat would say,
"Thank You for the Life,
 thank You for the Truth, 
thank You for the Way."

is not merely a feeling. It is a deep unity, maintained by the will and deliberately strengthened by habit; reinforced by (in Christian marriages) the grace which both partners ask, and receive, from God.

in Mere Christianity, C.S. Lewis

O amor não é meramente um sentimento. É uma unidade profunda, mantida pela vontade e deliberadamente fortalecida pelo hábito; reinforçada pela graça que ambos os companheiros pedem e recebem de Deus.

"this is my story, this is my song, praising my Saviour all the day long"!

"Em 1974, nós conheciamos pouco sobre Portugal. Mas tinhamos um nome e uma morada. Das 20 pessoas ali reunidas, eu era a única que possuia passaporte para viajar para Portugal"

And this is how the Saunders got into my family and all our lives!
