Once upon a time, a starry-eyed young girl put on a beautiful white dress and walked down the aisle where the man of her dreams waited. There, she promised God to love this man forever. They kissed and stepped onto the roller coaster of life. The years flew by. Today, she looked in the mirror at the lines around her eyes and wondered where the time has gone. Then she smiled. After all of the crying babies, utility bills, baseball practices, dentist appointments, piano lessons, runaway horses, carnival rides and basketball games, her heart still skips a beat when she sees him across the room. He has made her life a carousel of happiness.
~Happy Anniversary, Tom Head. I love you.
Place me like a seal over your heart,
like a seal on your arm;
for love is as strong as death,
its jealousy unyielding as the grave.
It burns like blazing fire,
like a mighty flame.
Many waters cannot quench love;
rivers cannot wash it away.
If one were to give
all the wealth of his house for love,
it would be utterly scorned.
Song of Solomon 8:6-7
