Wedded Bliss!

"He is the half part of a blessed man,
Left to be finished by such as she;
And she a fair divided excellence,
Whose fullness of perfection lies in him."
King John - Act. II Sc. 1 L. 437
Today is officially my 27th year of wedded bliss! I invite you to share in our celebration by a peek into the past. Oh my! We were such babies!
"God, the best maker of all marriages,
Combine your hearts in one."

Henry V. - Act 1. Sc. 2. L. 387

27 years ago today I began my journey as a bride,
Heart so full and starry eyed!
We began this journey of wedded bliss,
When pronounced husband and wife, sealed with a kiss. Together we stepped upon this path hand in hand,
An eternal journey symbolized by our golden bands. The path has not always been level and straight,
It has been hard work learning to be a mate.
We've shared many joys and sorrows as well,
We've made the choice to together dwell.

We've been blessed beyond our wildest dreams,
Our love it still flows like the freshest of streams,
Sweet to the taste, gentle to the touch,
Oh my sweet husband, I love you so much!

Upon arriving home, even after all these years,
Hearing your call, "Where is my beautiful bride?" brings me to tears.

My heart flutters and a smile lights my face,

As I rush into your warm embrace.

I wish for the end of the eve,

So we can slip away to our quiet reprieve.

There is one special space where we connect each day,
It is where we snuggle, laugh, slumber, dream, and play,

It is our marriage bed,

Where each night we sigh as we lay down our head, It is where we are alone with the world at bay,
It's where we share our hearts and pray.

It's where we drift off to sleep touching always,
It's where an "I love you" and a kiss seal our days.

Happy 27th Anniversary My Beloved!

This is poetry...
Your bed is so beautiful but even more beautiful is your love and marriage. WE just celebrated our 29th in August and I cannot imagine life without him.

Blessings to you both and, even though I am late, a very happy anniversary!
