The message is a great one: say what you need to say … before it’s too late. Everyday, every moment, every encounter we have, let us not be afraid / ashamed / removed from saying what we need to say, especially to those we hold dear to our hearts.
Thanks for the reminder Pastor Pete.
With that said:
Emily, I love you more than words said and written. I love you … at the end of the day, at the beginning of the next morning, I love you. It is through CHRIST that our love endures, and it’s through our marriage that HE will be ever praised. Thanks for walking this journey with me. Not only are you the most beautiful woman in the world, and the best mother / wife a husband could ever ask for, but simply put: you’re my best friend. I love you Emily Marie … forever and ever. Amen.
May 27, 2001 … the greatest day of my life. Hands down.
