Because She’s My Valentine


I just have to say that there is no one on earth like my wife. 

Every day, I learn something new about her, something that provokes me to love, to listen, and to learn.  We’ve had our first child together, but she still gets more beautiful every day.  Our love grows every day and survives through every disagreement and fight that we have.  She’s patient with me, endures my quirks, and loves me in spite of everything that I am.  She’s wonderful and lovely in the sight of the Lord.  No one pushes me or makes me laugh like she does.  After Jesus, she’s the true love of my life.

To quote a bible verse I can’t find, “Many daughters have done well, you excell them all…”

I love you Christy

Happy Valentines Day
