So I recently posted my email address on the video, to see if perhaps people would contact us to let us know if they were, in fact, using the song at their wedding. Sure enough, we started receiving emails from people who were using "A Wedding Prayer" as their first dance, last dance, mother/son dance and father/daughter dance. People were using the song to create their own wedding montage videos, and one couple even told us they lobbied the elders of their church for permission to play the song and dance to it following their wedding ceremony. Needless to say, the overwhelming sense of joy these connections bring us far outweighs the 99 cent price tag of the song.
When we hear from these people we've never met, we can't help but feel, at least in a small way, a part of their lives. It may only be a few moments in their lives, but what a special few moments! Moments that they will remember and treasure for the rest of their lives, and we get to be a part of it, forever.
We don't have children, and our dog will (hopefully) not outlive us, but together, Amy and I have created something that will. And we hope and pray that long after we're gone, "A Wedding Prayer" keeps going, unobstructed in it's course through cyberspace, eternally available and ready to serve as the incidental music behind the joining of two lives as one. It's truly amazing how rich you can feel after selling a song for 99 cents.
