The concert was outstanding. The audience a mixture of multiple generations. Re-makes of songs older than the young singer, were enjoyed by all generations. The light shows astonishing and when the hearts fell from the ceiling, you just knew the whole point was to "fall in Love". He even stops at one point in the concert to remind you to think on "why you fell in love" in the first place. I think that is a very good word for most couples. Life can wring you out at times.
Love doesn't just sit there, like a stone, it has to be made, like bread: remade all the time, made new.
Ursula K. LeUgin

Little expressions of endearment
He moved to the second stage which was within feet of our wonderful seats. Here he went back to the 70's era for this tunes. (Sorry on pictures...phone pics.)
What's terrible is to pretend that second-rate is first-rate. To pretend that you don't need love when you do; or you like your work when you know quite well your's capable of better.
There are just seasons of marriage that you dig deep. You pull yourself from the pit that situations have put you in and you remind yourself that you want first-rate, not second-rate. You allow an evening of music, provided for by your adult children, to rekindle what the enemy so strongly wants to extinguish.
You take the lead of the singer, as he sings through some of your favorite romantic songs, and you remember why you fell in Love.
One advantage of marriage is that, when you fall out of love with him or he falls out of love with you, it keeps you together until you fall in again. ~Judith Viorst
