To my loving husband on Valentines Day 2-14-2010
My Beloved was sent to me by Grace
after many years of loneliness
and questions and growing
my own life amongst the tears.
My Beloved gently mended a world-weary heart
and deepened its bond to the Holy One
thus creating a triangle of Love so strong
that nothing could interfere.
My Beloved quietly serves me
and allows me to serve him
praying together each morning for each other
so no harm can enter while we are apart.
My Beloved holds me in his arms
to warm me in a haven of security and peace
against a cold world of questions
and vicious uncertainty.
My Beloved vigilantly cares for me
in the days of work and striving
then gives me pleasant company
in moments of peace and joy.

For those of you who are alone on Valentine's Day, do not give up hope. There is One who loves you today, yesterday, and tomorrow.
For those of you who have that someone, there's a fave quote of mine:
"The grass is not greener on the other side of the fence; it's greener where you water it."
Love & Laughter,
"I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine, He who pastures his flock among the lilies."
Song of Solomon 6:3
