True Love

 Many times in our lives, we say "I love you." When I said "I love you" to her, I meant it. Through troubled times, in happy times, and even in the most devastating moments...I still loved her. Dedication and sacrifice...all things that the bible teaches us to do with the woman we love. Although I failed many times at both, my desire to better myself never died out. In fact, right now, in my lowest of moment, I still long to make myself even MORE sacrificial and dedicated to her. At night when I try to sleep, her face is the only thing I see; her angelic smile. Tears run down my face, and I cry out her name. My little miracle is missing. 

Other fish in the sea? That's what I hear in the back of my mind. I have always believed that when you have something worth living for, you don't work on looking any further. I am set. I will believe that till the day I die. Love is only true when you are willing to live and die for it. 

Ephesians 5:25-27 
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her 26 to make her holy,
cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, 27 and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. 

I live by this passage. I live for God. And I want to make her my wife.

References aside, Every little thing she does is like magic. No one else will do the things she did. Her pure heart, sincere spirit and tender soul are irreplaceable.

I wrote this for her...

 That One Flower

My bare Garden…That’s what I’m used to anyway.
Water has not been seen for months, the Garden is barren.
In the dry dirt, life seems to be impossible; the soil is dead.
All that remains is that one flower, the one that signifies hope.
She is graceful, beautiful and a perfect example of joy.
As the beacon of light, the flower stands in its roots.
Rooted in love, a flower is impossible to kill.
Standing tall, that one flower represents strength, virtue.
For as long as love remains,
it will always be the only flower in my bare garden.

You are all I need. I picture our lives together, and I see nothing but happiness. Nothing else in the world matters to me. Trivial things in this world last as long as material things last. They stay behind when we die, and people are going to eventually just throw it away or sell it. The love I have for you is concrete and pure, and it reaches beyond this material world. We do not know how much longer we have in this world...and we don't know many things for sure...but I do know this. I have never been more sure about ANYTHING in my entire life. Giving you a ring would be the happiest event of my life.

This post is dedicated to the girl who touched my soul...Thank you for everything.

The first picture I ever drew of her.
