49 Years of Blessings

From the beginning of creation, “God made them male and female. Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh. So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.” Mark 10:6-9

Wave after wave of blessings have crested, crashed, and rippled into our lives. With each new wave, we come closer to each other, moving in greater strength and love as one. Your steadfast love and care in the good times and in the troubled times have made all the difference. God has truly joined us together, and no one can separate us.

You are my thundering wave of strength, my deep water wave of hope, my ever-swirling wave of joy, and my unceasingly surging wave of love.

Thank you for 49 years of bountiful blessings that have united us forever.

I love you from the depths of my being. I am yours for all eternity,
Your Beloved
