How beautiful is your love, my Beloved!
How much better is your love than wine,
and the fragrance of your oils than any spice!
Adapted from Song of Solomon 4:10
Beauty embraces your love.
Bouquets sweeten your lips.
Fragrance spices your kisses.
Incense follows your walk.
You are altogether lovely.
You are heaven’s fragrance
enfolding my very being.
How beautiful is your love.
The Fragrance of Love
is my Beloved!
Celebrating 50 Love-Filled Years with You!
“I have loved you with an everlasting love.” Jeremiah 31:3b
Through the rocky grounds and lush meadows
Together, we have traveled.
We sang, we danced, we crawled, and we pranced.
Together, you and I.
Mountains, valleys, and deserts we have traveled.
Rivers, seas, and skies we have crossed.
Earthquakes, typhoons, monsoons, fires, and winds,
we have endured.
Through it all, we saw the colors of the rainbow in our love.
We chose love, and that has made all the difference.
I love you from the very depths of my being.
I celebrate you on our 50th Wedding Anniversary!
