Focus On the Family is having a love letter contest. I thought I would share the link with all of you and my letter.
No amount of words can truly describe how much I love you. A lifetime of your company is just barely enough time to know you fully. You are a blessing I have been given from God above and I will treasure you fully as our hair greys, our joints ache and our minds grow feeble. All these things I write and I mean them so but why do I want to grow old with you, my beloved? I can only say that you make me want to live until I die and dying will not be sorrowful because I lived life with you.
Our children will tell stories of our love and will in turn know how God intended a man and woman to live. They will tell how you adored me and I you. They will speak of sacrifice, hard work and laughter. But best of all, they will have learned how to love themselves. And we will rock in chairs upon our front porch and speak fondly of days gone by. And when I draw my last breath and you your's, Then I will know that the choice we made so many years before was the best choice we could have ever made. The rough journey of life was smoother because of you , my beloved. I will thank the Lord for the gift and enter heaven at peace in my soul.
Peace, love and God's will.
