a tale of two hearts

8 times around the sun

"When over the years someone has seen you at your worst, and knows you with all your strengths and flaws, yet commits him-or herself to you wholly, it is a consummate experience.  To be loved but not known is comforting but superficial. To be known and not loved is our greatest fear. 
But to be fully known and truly loved is, well a lot like being loved by God. 

It is what we need more than anything. It liberates us from pretense, humbles us out of our self-righteousness, and fortifies us from any difficulty life can throw at us"
The Meaning of Marriage, Timothy Keller

It's been a remarkable 8 years. Happy anniversary honey!

I've loved being your best friend and having you as mine. I'm so thankful for God's goodness and generosity in bringing us together. I'm a better person for having walked through life these last 13 years by your side.

You are a remarkable man and I'm honoured to be your wife.
