Happy 8 Years!
Happy 8 years to my lover
the one who has been the face of Christ to me more than any other,
the greatest gift God's ever given to me.
Thanks for asking for my hand 8+ years ago high up on the mountaintop
for not just staying with me when I've dragged you through some deep, dark valleys--
but loving me in and through them.
We've had some unexpected, amazing summit views
as well as stony, narrow, dark valleys to walk through.
Fewer for us have been the plateaus where we've just had to plod on,
but I've been grateful for those times, too--
when you've simply held my hand and enjoyed the trek.
I pray for many more years of journeying home with you by my side.
I love you and am grateful to God for you more than my words can express.
