To: My dear rose

rose I love you

Karen, you are the second greatest joy of my life

Next to knowing my Lord

Been with me through times of strife

Seen beyond the disabilities in me

Shown me in trusting God who I can be

I am not these eyes that have times of trouble seeing

I am not the fellow who has trouble walking

I am not merely a person who has trouble keyboarding

I am not the man who forgets so many things

I am not defined by my rare auto immune condition systemic mastocytosis
That is the way many worldly eyes see me

I am not weak because in Christ am I made strong

I am a man who loves you with all of my heart next to God

You have loved me through so many times when I came close to death

Laid your weary head at the bottom of my bed

Cried as tears soaked a hospital pillow

Sat in hard ER chairs

Prayed for me through nine intubations

Prayed for my healing through your doubts and fears

Why do I share these thoughts with the world?

Because I pray they will see the wonderful gift God gave me

When He brought you into my life to see

What a joy it is to know God

To feel His life beat in your heart

To know He loves you

Cares for you deeply

Wants only the best for you

Desires you to worship Him

To give back some of the love He gives you

To trust that no matter what hardship comes God will be with you

That He’ll give you the strength to pull you through

I pray, my darling, God would see

What a beautiful gift you are to me

That I will love Him and you now into eternity
