This beautiful song carries such a strong message, which is probably why it's so popular at weddings. This takes "for better and for worse" to a whole new level. Most of it is self-explanatory, but don't you just love the comparison between changing seasons and the changing years of life--both are intentional, both are part of the beauty of life. And as age takes away what the world considers "beauty," Chapman describes it as growing in beauty--faithfulness, devotion, deep beauty that sometimes only love can see. It brings tears to my eyes! Beautiful!
