Today is the anniversary of the day when God blessed me with the most precious earthly gift He could give me. My wonderful, sweet, loving, good husband.
When I was in high school, we studied this poem by Anne Bradstreet, and it became the focus of what I wanted in a husband. I know I posted it last year, but I always return to it every anniversary and thank God that He answered my prayer.
To My Dear and Loving Husband
If ever two were one, then surely we.
If ever man were lov'd by wife, then thee.
If ever wife was happy in a man,
Compare with me, ye women, if you can.
I prize thy love more than whole mines of gold
Or all the riches that the East doth hold.
My love is such that Rivers cannot quench,
Nor ought but love from thee give recompence.
Thy love is such I can no way repay.
The heavens reward thee manifold, I pray.
Then while we live, in love let's so persever
That when we live no more, we may live ever.
I love you, Honey. Happy Anniversary.
