Song of Solomon 1:2

Kiss me and kiss me again,
for your love is sweeter than wine.

This Sunday is our 17th wedding anniversary and I continue to love him more and more. Who would have thought 17 years ago, all of this LIFE would have passed between us. All the experiences, good and bad. All the ups and downs, ins and outs….and the children. All 4 of them. Yes 4, we just have 3 on earth with us.

verse 15&16
How beautiful you are, my darling,
how beautiful! Your eyes are like doves.

You are so handsome, my love,
pleasing beyond words!

I love his sense of humor and how he makes me laugh. I love his responsibility he feels towards his family. I love that he is trustworthy and honest, even if it hurts at times. I love his devotion to his children and the joy he has with them!


16 My lover is mine, and I am his.

In 17 years, I am amazed at how much we have grown together, I love him so much! I love that he is not one of those men who dabble in pornagraphy, and he’s never been unfaithful to me. He is a man of God!

His mouth is sweetness itself;
he is desirable in every way.
Such, O women of Jerusalem,
is my lover, my friend.

He is my best friend. My grumpy days, my good days, my exciting news, my grief, he is always there. Some days he may not like it 😉 but he is always there. The years have not always been kind to us, but he is always faithful. I love him.

I would still choose my dove, my perfect one—
the favorite of her mother,
dearly loved by the one who bore her.

I am honored to call him my husband. I am proud of him. The sight of him still excites. I enjoy his company. I still find him to be the most handsome man alive. He is my soul-mate, and he is my friend.

Lord, I thank You for Michael. I am blessed in every way to have him as my husband. Please, give us 50 more years at least together. Keep him safe. Give him favor. Guard his heart, guard his mind, and guard his eyes. Keep him healthy. Give us joy and bless our marriage, please. I am so grateful for this man You have given me. In Jesus mighty name….
