Hi, it’s me again!

Those of you who know me well, know that 1) I ask a lot of questions and 2) I am not too proud to ask for help.

I am asking my WordPress family (and especially, my friends at The Ultimate Betty) to drop me some comments regarding love songs that could be adapted to be sung in a church wedding ceremony.  Include on this list Christian suggestions like “There is Love” , and secular love songs like “Faithfully“…  whatever you think would be nice or what you would like to hear sung at a wedding.   Guys, I would like your opinions too!  Oh, and what is that classical wordless song that is played at Christmas time?  Is it called “Joy”?  That probably would be wonderful and fit right in with the Christmas trees, poinsettias and candles…

You’re wondering what my taste in music is?  I love ANY kind of music EXCEPT country and rap.

2012 has gone by so fast that now it’s time to pick out a wedding song or two.  My pastor and his wife used to be a singing couple at coffee houses and restaurants, and Pastor to this day plays in the worship band – guitar, mandolin, etc.  A very talented couple.  Jennifer has agreed to sing for us, she sounds like a folksinger angel, and I think it’s only fair we give her some lead time so she can practice.  Or, if necessary, write a song like we like but have a few different words from the original…

Okay folks, warm up those typing fingers and contact me soon, please – or write me at  If you know my phone number, please use it.  All ideas will be considered.  Also, we are flexible people so are quite open to many ideas.  You don’t have to know me well to put forth a pitch for your favorite wedding song.  🙂

OR…you could send me lyrics that you write (we all are, after all, writers) and Mary could probably whip up something good to go with them.  Don’t be shy now…upon sending me ideas, you will have my loyal thanks and devotion for a lifetime!  🙂 But actually I will reward the best idea if we use it…


Love you all,

I am an optimistic, positive person who is a seven year cancer survivor. Since that time I have learned that getting a cancer diagnosis does not always mean an automatic death sentence. I like to share my hope with others and continue to encourage them - no matter who they are or what they need encouragement for. I write poems, prayers, articles, and stories. Recently the premiere issue of my online magazine, launched. Thank you for visiting!

  2. I found another song for you: Plain White T’s – 1, 2, 3, 4 – here is the video: – it’s a simple kinda fun song – Plain White T’s is the name of the band

  3. Reblogged this on Poetry Weekly and commented:

    Sorry, I know this is a poetry blog, but I wanted to put a little commercial in for help with my wedding on December 12, 2012. Thanks for reading and participating!
