…for love is strong as death

The fragrance of the wedding lilies and the echoes of the bridal pearls flood my senses. This day. Fifteen years in covenant.

My Love,

Yesterday I looked through my twine-wrapped bundle of daily letters sent from you and your shoebox of letters from me. I read how two souls longed to be poured out and lovingly received. I had visions of when our story began – We spent every minute we could together, then so soon we vowed. Our covenant words still clear: “I will do you good and not harm all of the days of your life.”

These golden fifteen years have transformed us together through the delight of God, and He has bountifully blessed us by the gifts of seven-fold.

Your hand and heart give out blessings to us and others, and you never cease to minister comfort, joy, help, healing, strength, and safety. We are satisfied in your unselfish kindness.

The verse still etched inside my ring:

“Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm,

for love is strong as death.” – Song of Solomon 8:6

with unending love. Damaris
