HAPPY 20TH ANNIVERARY!
HAPPY 20TH ANNIVERARY! Sheila you are my TRUE LOVE! True love is a sacred flame that burns eternally, and none can dim its special glow or change its destiny. True love speaks in tender tones and hears with a gentle ear. True love gives with open heart and true love conquers fear. True love makes neither harsh demands it neither rules nor binds and true love holds with gentle hands. True love, which only comes from God, has entwined our hearts.
Over the years we have been through a lot, but we are still standing strong. Over 20 years ago when I first asked you to marry me, you said, no. However, I knew it was destiny. Over the next few months I won your broken heart and you confirmed our TRUE LOVE that was to come and is now.
Realizing that my marriage to you included a union with two more and then came number three and I love them just as much as I love you. We have spent the last 20 years caring and providing for them—now I plan to spend the next 20 caring and providing for you in a special way.
For the last 20 years you have treated like a king. Your love for me and God’s love for me has kept me pure. Sheila, even when I didn’t know it; you where the breeze that made my sail glide.
I know it’s much easier to love someone when everything is going well and there’s plenty of money to spend on the things you want. We had those years and you love me through them. However, the elegance of your love came when I asked you to give it all up, because Jesus was telling me to follow Him. Even, when you didn’t understand it all and I couldn’t find words to explain it, you agreed to surrender it all.
I know it was hard to give up the money, cars and house; it was hard for me too. Nevertheless, what God has given us now; it was worth the sacrifice. Our love for God and each other, the time we spend together is priceless and a debt free approach to life. Thank you for sticking with me, even when I wouldn’t listen to you. You saw me being used, when I was blinded by people whom I put my trust. When my pastor told me that you didn’t love me, I thank God; He muted my ears to man and increased the volume to Him!
Through all the hurt, heartaches, lies and betrayal brought on by others, God used that to make us. You know what I always say, it was not until I learned the love of God, that I didn’t know what love was. God used you to show me unconditional love.
Thank you, my love! Every day I look forward to being with you, walking in the park, talking on the phone, going to the movies, dancing in the streets, laying on the beach and just hanging out.
Your husband, lover and best friend,
