My Favourite Guy

IMG_9554

Over 30 years ago,

This man,

This amazing man,

Promised to love me

Like Christ loved the church,

Selflessly,

Completely,

Eternally.

It was a beautiful sentiment,

But how could he make such a promise?

After all,

Who knew what our tomorrows would bring?

Well,

Because of the strength and love

That God provided

Year after year,

Decade after decade,

Dave loved me

Faithfully,

Diligently,

Undeservedly.

To be honest,

It took me much longer

To begin to love him

As he deserves.

But still,

He did not withdraw his love from me,

Not even a little.

So what stage of love am I in?

That wondrous, glorious, amazing stage

That only gets better

With each passing day.

May he and I share many, many more such days.

“Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.” 

Ephesians 5:25 ESV
