My Lover…

Love is love's reward. -John Dryden

Love is not to be trifled with.  -French Proverb

Love is a many splendored thing.  -Paul Francis Webster

Love makes the world go 'round.  -French song

Love doesn't make the world go 'round.  Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.  -Franklin P. Jones

Love is blind.  -Chaucer

Love is all you need.  -The Beatles


Love is my lover, my husband, my friend, my strength.  Love is my Dave.  And who am I to have had such love for 26 years?  I am blessed above all.  In these times, when we see all around us the ravages of life ripping to shreds families and lovers, long-time marriages and friends, when we understand that not much in life will support and nurture and cover safely precious, tender love and commitment, we are graced and blessed and must continue to declare with more conviction than ever – I am yours, you are mine, we are Christ's.  I love you and you love me and we are going to, by faith, finish even stronger than we started, and baby, that is STRONG!

Happy anniversary, Dave…Jeanie

NOTE TO DAVE:  Remember when we first got married and you were at DJ at KHRT radio in Minot?  And remember how I'd give you lists of songs to play when you went in and you'd play them and say, "This is for my sweet wife" and things like that over and over and you continuously regaled your listeners with stories about how I was making hundreds of homemade meatballs for dinner that night and that kind of stuff?  And remember how instructors at school would say, "If you talk about your wife one more time I think I will throw up-it's sickening!"?  Well, if you don't lighten up at your new blog, people are gonna start saying that again.
