God Gave Me You – This Friday’s Song

This Friday’s song is “God Gave Me You” by Dave Barnes. I chose to share this song this week for a very special reason. Fifteen years ago this week, I drove up to Kendall from the Keys to meet my wife Teresa for the very first time. We had our “first date” at Bahama Breeze. That night changed my life.

Blake Shelton released a version of “God Gave Me You” the year after it was first released by Barnes. While that version is a little “slicker” from a production perspective, I prefer the original by Barnes. It is much more from his heart.

My darling Teresa, I don’t think I can ever say it better than this…

‘Cause God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt
And for when I think I lost my way
There are no words here left to say, it’s true
God gave me you
Gave me you
