As I have been trying to decide how to end this series of 14 Days of Valentines, I thought of this song.  I have heard it sung at several different weddings.  As far as I know neither Lonnie or I have ever sung it, and actually it is not the style of music that we even listen to, but I have always loved the lyrics to this song.  It seems to sum up the other 13 posts and what I want my Valentine to know on this Valentines Day, February 14, 2012  If you were listening to the actual song with the music, you might be crying as you read this.  I don't want you to cry!  Even though, I'm a little weepy myself since the subject of these posts is away in a meeting today.  So, I will insert some pictures in here and there.......some of them never seen before, just for fun ones!

Cherish the Treasure

I cherish the treasure
The treasure of you

Lifelong companion
I give myself to you

God has enabled me
To walk with you faithfully

And cherish the treasure
The treasure of you

As I obey the Spirit's voice
And seek to do His will
I then can see the wisdom of His plan

For as He works His will in me
I then can love you selflessly
And by His grace, can pledge my love to you

This sacred vow I make to you
Does not contain an "if"

Though I'm aware that trials lie ahead
I will love you and pray with you
And through it all, I will stay with you

Our home will be a refuge of
Unconditional love

Cherish the treasure
The treasure of you
