“that is the only purpose grand enough for a human life. Not just to love but to persist in love.” – the Secret Life of Bees
It’s been eleven years. How do you speak of the things you live together in that time? I can’t give voice to letting down every defense and building walls so high you think there’s no way through. There are no words for a love so deep and true that death itself does not destroy it. No spelling out all the things you like and the bits that drive you crazy. How does any of that stand in the face of life tossed straight and hard at you, when you still walk hand in hand?
Our days and arms are filled with them, our little ones, our bodies the glue that fragile holds this all together. Our God, He holds us all together and we’ll hold out for summer, we’ll wait for the summer. Because there is a promised land and on the way there is beauty enough
I Love you SMUV
I started making videos for our anniversary last year. And I hope to make many more. Today also marks the one year anniversary of my incredible time with wonderful people at the Don’t Give Up Project .
