IT is When A Man Loves A Woman

Or maybe I should post When A Woman Loves A Man...

But then, this loving, sexy song wouldn't quite fit the bill, would it?

I've known all sorts of love in my life. Aside from my family, my first two loves were a dog and a horse. I had both by the time I was born. And yes, both dogs and horses are still two of my favorite loves in life.

Following these first sweet loves, life presented innocent loves and deeper loves.

And then IT found me.

Real, true, honest, devoted, love with all your southern heart, knock your socks off, a Christian husband kind of love. I don't know of a better way to describe IT.

IT keeps your life Christ centered, even when everything else is out of balance.

IT (for me), came with the complete package - 2 great kids (now both married, soon to have our first grandchild), precious in-laws and nieces.

IT makes you want to fall asleep on his shoulder, listening to his heartbeat. And wake up in the same spot.

IT encourages you to experience his loves, and a privilege to be his partner.

IT gives you the confidence to just be who you are, no approval is needed.

IT brings warm and fuzzy an entirely new meaning.

IT gives best friend a different definition.

I hope if you haven't had IT, or have never known IT, that God will deliver IT to you. Take my word, even a great life is so much sweeter with IT.

I am so grateful IT found me. What if I had missed IT?

Funny, for the first time in my life, I have no fear of losing IT. I know IT was the love He had planned for me all along (patience had never been my virtue).

For John, my love...from the Bible and our wedding:

Love...bears all things,
believes all things,
hopes all things,
endures all things.
Love never fails.
I Corinthians 13:4, 7-8

I love you with every inch of my soul. May we have IT for eternity.

My life is beautiful with you, in black & white and full of color. IT is my perfect place.
