Two weeks after my husband and I started dating, we were sitting in his old white Chevy pick-up
truck, looking out at a beautiful blue lake surrounded by red sandstone rock, listening to some Country music. The George Strait song, “I cross my heart” came through the speakers. As I listened to that song, tears sprang to my eyes, and the feeling came into my heart, that this was the man I was going to marry. (Yes, we had only been dating two weeks, and yes that was a little frightening).
That song became “our song”. The movie “Pure Country” was also the first video we watched together. We have now been married almost 24 years and that movie and that song are still special to us.

About 10 years ago, I had the opportunity of getting some vinyl lettering to put on my walls. One of the phrases I chose to put on my wall was from the song, “I cross my heart”.
I placed it above the front door of my house in my living room. As I read it, I am reminded that through the difficult storms of life, my husband is there for me, to help me.
Most people would think of that phrase and think of two sweethearts who are pledging to be with each other and love each other through all the struggles and difficult storms of life.
One day, I was sitting on the couch, and I looked at that phrase and pondered a different meaning. On this particular day, I thought that this phrase could be from Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.
Maybe it was because I was going through a particularly difficult time and knew I needed to rely on them to help me through the trials I was going through.
Anyway, “if along the way we find a day, it starts to storm, we have the promise of THEIR LOVE to keep us warm.”
I want my children to look at that phrase as they walk out the door. I always want them to know, that no matter what, they will always have my love.
Also, they will always have the help, guidance, and comfort of a loving Heavenly Father and the promises of the Atonement of Jesus Christ.
