The Difference Between Us

Marriage is a mystery. Why do two people choose to link themselves together for life when any thinking person can see that learning to intertwine your life with someone else’s requires an enormous amount of patience, forgiveness, and plain hard work?

Because most of the time, two are better than one. If you choose wisely, and continue to live out your relationship with wisdom and love, you can end up helping, supporting, and complementing one another in ways that are not immediately apparent.

Ephesians 5:31-33

For this reason, a man will leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife and the two will become one flesh. This is a profound mystery–but I am talking about Christ and the church

Song Notes

It was early evening. I was alone at home, and bored. And probably brainstorming story ideas in my head. Somehow I started thinking about marriages and how some couples have very different personalities and characteristics, yet with the right perspective, those differences can be quite complementary. And voila–this song:


The difference between us is like the sun and sky
Each needs the other, without it can’t get by
One to embrace as the other smiles bright, warming our entire lives

A bird in the tree and a fish in the lake
Cannot be together, or so people say,
One’s of the water, and one’s of the air
If they got together, they would live…where?

A tortoise that plods and the fast-moving hare
Each run at their own pace so how would they dare
To love one another much less live together
Unless somehow God helps them there?

We all need a foil to fill the holes we leave
Once they are found, we forever to them cleave,
You complement me, and we reach higher than
Each of us by ourselves can
