    Thanks so much for responding to my comment and my blog. Congratulations to you and your wife! Y’all got married just a month before my husband and I tied the knot.
    What a great and romantic idea! I’ll keep following and see how you’re doing.
    I would have to put Billy Joel’s “Honesty” and Randy Travis’s “Forever and Ever Amen” on our list.
    Great work!

      Thanks, Linda. Yes, I like those songs, too. So far my list is at more than 60, and it seems that I think of one or two more every day. I wondered if 100 was too many — now I’m thinking I may have to cut some. And congrats to you and your husband, as well.

      Linda, you may have noticed that your comment prompted me to add another page link above, titled “Your song(s).” If you’d like to comment there, and say why these particular songs (or another) have particular meaning for you, feel free to do so. Thanks.
