True Love


The familiar sand squishes through my toes,

As the familiar sensation of your hand covers mine.

We walk along the same beach,

Where 15 years before we walked as newly weds.

Young… In love… Uncertain as to the events that lay ahead.

Babies… financial struggles… graduate school,

Laughter… quarrels… and undying devotion.

Through the joys, the sorrows, and the trials,

We walk together…

Hand & hand…

Heart to heart…

Soul to soul…

We love together.

Marital bliss… sometimes.

Marital discord… all too often.

Marital commitment… The glue that  holds us together.

Our commitment made to God…

The key to a successful marriage.

The vows we made before God, ourselves, each other, family, and friends…

The beginning of lifelong love.

Our love… 15 years later,





With each day that passes,

Praying together… living together…

Serving one another… encouraging one another…

Challenging the other… building up the other…

These are the ingredients to… A happy marriage.

A love built on undying commitment,

Hearts refusing to shrivel in bitterness,

Determination to continually forgive,

A love built on our devotion to serving … the One True God… TOGETHER!

This… my love… is “TRUE LOVE”!!!

I love God, my husband was my high school sweet heart, and still is today. I'm a proud mother of the four most wonderful, sweetest, and cutest kids in the world! In addition, I am a mental health counselor. I love to write! I write from the most honest places within my heart and pray my experiences are able to help and encourage others on their journey through life.
