Love Never Fails

I just wanted to share something sweet with you guys tonight.

At our wedding, my Aunt Lisa played the guitar and sang Brandon Heath's "Love Never Fails". I think it was while we were lighting the Unity Candle. She did such a beautiful job. Out of all of the songs we chose for our special day, this one was my favorite. I loved it from the moment I first heard it, and knew all along that I wanted this to be played during the ceremony. My Aunt Lisa is the most amazing singer in the world and she also plays a mean accoustic guitar... so when I ran across the guitar tabs online while looking for the lyrics to the song, I knew it was going to be perfect. I hardly even remember listening to her play it during the wedding because I was so overwhelmed with everything going on, especially not lighting the church on fire with the unity candle tapers.. but when we watched the video a few weeks later I cried the whole time.

Tonight, Brandon {we're obviously on a first name basis} was playing a show at a local church here in town. I think that one of the best things about Christian artists is that even when they become super popular, they play smaller shows and don't charge an arm and a leg for tickets! My sister-in-law went to the concert with a friend and got to meet him! She brought this home for us:



It says, "Kurt and Betsy, Love never fails". How cool! I think it was sweet of Jordynn to mention us to him when she met him, and also super sweet of him to take the time to care. I am so excited to add this to our wedding scrapbook as soon as I show it to Kurt when he gets home tonight {we went bowling and then he dropped me off to go have a MUCH needed guys night out, which he hasn't had in months and months... we even had joint bachelor/bachelorette parties!}. How many people can say that they have something like this in their wedding album? :)

If you've never heard the song, here it is!

ps: PLEASE don't make the mistake of searching for the song on YouTube and clicking on the one that says "Kathy Lee Gifford - Love Never Fails". I panicked for a second and thought maybe she sang it first. I did a little research and confirmed my belief that Brandon Heath wrote it... but still felt like I needed to watch the KLG video. YUUUUCK.  oh my god. bad.bad.bad. Seriously the worst song and video ever.

That was so beautiful! I hadn't heard of him or this song until now. Thanks for sharing such an amazing song.

That was so nice of your sister-in-law to bring home an autographed picture :)

Hello! I just read your comment about my mini hand-held sewing machine from singer. Oh.my.word! I used it today for the first time and it was AMAZING! I will be posting a how-to on my blog on Tuesday but it's definitely something that I am soo happy I broke down and bought!!! If you get one make sure you let me know how you like it!

Have a wonderful week!
