Hundred More Years

Days ago, I discovered this amazing song by one of my fav musicians – Francesca Battistelli. Peculiar anointing she’s got. Her songs minister peace and confidence to me. Here goes;

Diamond ring and twelve red roses
Everything she ever wanted
All those dreams and now they’re finally here
She’s so young and he’s so perfect
They waited for love and it was worth it
she wants to feel like this for a hundred years
All this life still yet to live and they can hardly wait.

They can laugh, they can cry
The future looks so beautiful and bright
They can dance under the moonlight
‘Cos God is smiling down on them tonight
And she wants to stay right here
Make it last for a hundred more years.

She’s got blue just like her mother
Three years old, he’s crazy for her
He wants to freeze this day before it disappears
She’s spinning like a little princess
Making sure he’s gonna notice
He could watch her twirl for a hundred years
She’ll grow and she’ll leave home but until that day

They can laugh, they can cry
The future looks so beautiful and bright
They can dance under the moonlight
‘Cos God is smiling down on them tonight
And he wants to stay right there
make it last for a hundred more years.

And its only time but if flies right by
And today its sweeter than we know

Beautiful lyrics and I tell you, her voice is even more beautiful. Her song depicts a scenario of a husband and wife in love who waited on God for each other. Their future is beautiful and bright because they waited. You can tell they are contented, filled with joy and they totally adored each other. She got everything she ever wanted. He saw his wife in his little girl. Most important, they had God smiling down on them. Ahhh! I’m totally digging this kinda life. They must have done the right things. Her song just tells me it pays to wait on God. How amazing it is to wait. It ain’t easy but its totally worth it. So if you ever have dreams of a happily ever after, wait for His choice for you. If a dude comes along and you get a red light from God, stop! Don’t go any further! Just trust God and go back to waiting. Meanwhile, enjoy you. Enjoy life. Enjoy God. Get life started and explore your world. Don’t hinder yourself. Do not pressure yourself with thoughts either if ‘he’ hasn’t come. If you find it increasingly difficult to wait, just get on your knees and ask God for strength. You very well know he will supply right? Serve God in love and with all of you while you are single. God has got you covered. Do you believe that? I hope you do.
Its important to wait for the right kind of love. Like my mama says, God gives excellent gifts to His children. That I know. So, are you one of them? Then expect lots and lots of wonders from Him! Those who wait on God no dey carry last abeg. So if you are single like me and willing to explore, hold my hands. . . Let’s GO!

Thanks Sam for the song
God bless you virtuous women of God!
