My Beloved

hand heart

You who are greatly loved.
And most dear to my heart.
It’s you I have loved from the very start.

Young though we were …
Our love was most true.
For a long time now, it’s been me and you.

You give meaning to my days.
Security to my nights.
You inspire me to not give up, to stand firm, to sit tight.

To cling to what’s good.
To let go of what’s not.
To press on through tears when it’s blessings I’ve sought.

You encourage. You support.
You gently lead the way.
Through difficulties, through hardship. I know your love remains.

And so, here we are –
Day in and day out.
Committed to one another: what marriage is about.

Good habits and bad.
Laughter and fear.
Growing and stretching: keeping God’s word near.

Loving you, my beloved.
And you loving me.
Spending life with you; no other place I’d rather be.



I'm a wife, a mom, and a mia (my own special word for grandma). You may or may not be these things, and that’s okay. Chances are we're still a lot alike. I’m certain we share some of the same struggles and ponder many of the same questions. We're busy and we're tired -can I get an amen? Yet, here we are, trying to live meaningful lives, positively impact those around us, and add a little sunshine wherever we go. But it’s not easy, is it? We mess up. Life gets tough. We find ourselves in need of a friend. Someone to encourage us, stand by us, and speak truth into us. To remind us we are not alone. That, sweet sister, is where I hope to come in - not with all the answers (I’m still searching for some myself), but with a genuine concern for you and a desire to walk alongside you on this incredible -and oftentimes arduous- journey called life.
