Alternatively Titled: Just HOW MANY watermelons did Kara swallow???
Ten years. In my mind, that has always been a big deal.
I’ve put some thought into what to write for the Ten Year Anniversary Blog Post. Because, obviously, there has to be a blog post.
But, honestly, you have to know your limits. God has placed the most amazing man in my life, ever (‘sides Jesus,) and I don’t think any of my own words could adequately express how that feels, ten years in.
So I will borrow somebody else’s words. I don’t think she’ll mind; a lot of people have done it.
So get ready for not one, but TWO blasts from the past! One of them being a trip to your old high school British lit class. The other being a walk down Memory Lane, via a bunch o’ photos of Josh and Kara through the years.
It’s a lot to take in, I know. Just do your best!
How Do I Love Thee? (Sonnet 43)
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.
I love the to the level of every day’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right.
I love the purely, as they turn from praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints. I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, and tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.
~ Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Happy 10 Year Anniversary, My Love!!!
