51 Years of Delight

“As an apple tree among the trees of the forest,
so is my beloved among the young men.
With great delight I sat in his shadow,
and his fruit was sweet to my taste.”

Song of Solomon 2:3

Sweetness in Unity

My Beloved, my Darling, my delight is in you.
Throughout our 51 years, you have given me rest in the shade of your presence.
You took my hand, and we danced through numerous
adventures and the unknown.
You bid me to close my eyes to the world and
taste the sweet fruit of your selfless labor.
I am captivated by your love.
You have abundantly blessed me

I love you from the depth of my very being.

47 Years of Delight

Celebrating my Beloved on our 47th Anniversary

My beloved is radiant and respected, distinguished among myriads. His head overflows with the wisdom of the ancients. His eyes shine as the sun’s rays over Jerusalem at dawn. His cheeks are like jasmine tea leaves and mounds of fragrant herbs found at Siem Reap. His lips are sweet, dripping honey and cinnamon from Vietnam. His arms are muscular and strong, ready to protect in the jungles of Cambodia. His body is lean and masculine, rising in Ha Long Bay, majestic and peaceful. My beloved’s legs are columns of marble found in the Taroko Gorge, tried and strong. His appearance is like the Dolomite Mountains, bold and magnificent. His mouth speaks words of kindness, and he is altogether desirable.

This is my beloved, and this is my friend.

I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine.

How lovely you are, my beloved,
And so delightful! Song of Songs 1:6

My beloved, you continue to surprise and delight me, even after 46 years!
Every moment with you is an adventure in joy and love. I could not have imagined the height, depth, breadth, or intensity of your love for me. You were created for me,
and I was created for you. What love the Father has for us!
He gave you to me wrapped in love to lead me on life’s journey.

I cherish you!
