an open letter

To my found treasure(s)

Although we’re merely an idea in my mind right now, one day we will all be together.  I think about you, the family that we will be and long to discover and watch what is sure to be our clever uniqueness unfold.  I can’t wait to share your passions and dreams, goals and ambitions and teach you and encourage and build your imaginations.

Every year I take this day to write a letter to my noble pursuit, my one day wife to be, but this year I want to include all of you, my future son(s) and or daughter(s).  I long for the day when it’s only you guys that mean this whole world to me, and nothing more.

to my noble pursuit

Sometimes you have to be apart from the people you love, but that doesn’t make you love them any less. Sometimes you love them more, much more than you could have ever known and wouldn’t have known otherwise…

If tonight could have been shared with you, a rose would be the last thing I’d give you; instead I would have adorned you with a white carnation because it represents pure love, fascination and distinction.  It wouldn’t be clipped but in a pot filled with dirt, because although the top is extravagant, stunning, even alluring, the flower has deep roots that stretch far under the surface and support the structure, holding it up and together, making it what it is.  The roots feed the flower making it stay beautiful and they’re exactly what’s needed, every one of them a sacrificial pillar of unconditional unity, where qualities balance each other out.  The roots are the humble commitment, the integrity, admiration, patience, keeping no records of wrongs. For us, I want there to always be newness, freshness and strangeness, a delightful pursuit even after matrimony. For us, there will always be that element of pursuing, even when we’re extremely old and still have each other, best of friends.  Let’s never be fully assured in our love, but have a healthy fear of loss so we will always, constantly be treasuring each other, never taking for granted what we’ll be so blessed to have.  Our noble pursuit will always be there, now, after we meet, well into our marriage, even after our deaths.  Continue reading “to my noble pursuit” »

the noble vision that’s promised to come

Jesus,

I want to be molded into the man you want me to be for my future wife.  I want to be worthy of her waiting and affection.  I want my relationship with You to draw her toward me, and our relationship draw from and point toward You.  Jesus, something has come over me, and I know it’s going to be hard but it’s time to wipe the slate clean today, to rise up out of this griminess that’s been holding me down and take hold of all You have for me.  Today is the day that I start believing that everything I ever wanted is on its way, maybe not, surely not in the way I expect, but definitely on it’s way.  You have already set these plans into motion, today The Vision is renewed, better than ever before.
