My Love Letter

Months ago, I said I would post this love letter from my dear husband, as soon as I found it. I finally found it tonight, while unpacking more boxes from our move four years ago. I received it in this pretty frame so I had it hanging on the wall in our old home. Every time I would feel insecure, I would stand and read this. This man has stood by my side through many things in our lives and he is still standing. As I type this letter into the computer, tears are streaming down my face, just as if it were the first time I read it years ago. I don't know what I did to deserve such a wonderful man but I know, I have been blessed.

The Love Letter from my Husband of 22 years

For my lovely wife, the jewel amongst all cut glass;

You are so beautiful my love! You are so beautiful. Your eyes draw me in and captivate my being. When I look into your gaze, my thoughts become fuzzy. They are clearer than the bluest water. You are as a lily among thorns when with other women!
Your voice is a tinkling stream on a hot dry, day. Its sweet melody brings peace and calm to my spirit. I long to hear you speak to me when I am away from you. Your lips are full and desirable! They beckon to me when I am near you. I love to go to the mountains of sweet perfume, to the hill of fragrance. Your tenderest places awaken the lion that sleeps within me. You stroke up a flame of desire within my bosom. To hold you is all that I want. To feel your tender caresses eases my soul. Turn your eyes from me because they overwhelm me. You are perfect, without blemish. There is no imperfection in your beauty. You are a true lady of God. Your spirit grows everyday. The Lord is your master and king and for this I am eternally grateful. You have come so far with Jesus, I am excited to see where you will be in years to come. You challenge my soul. Truly, God gave you to me as the one who makes me complete.

My love, I know that sometimes you wonder about my love for you. I regret that so very much. I have always loved you with all my heart and my love for you grows as the years pass. You can be as confident that I will always be there for you, as God rules, as you are that I am your brother in Christ! You are so precious to me. There is nothing I have that shines as even a distant light in comparison to you. I pray that our love grows, even as your beauty and spirit have already grown.

Your Beloved Forever

Mother,

I want a real list! You have two days or your getting an ugly hot sweater in the middle of our 90 degree weather. LOL

Jan and amel,

I will treasure this love note for the rest of my life.

I guess it is good to marry someone in printing.

Love,

Lori
