Truest Love In a Thank You Note

Love is more than blissful images from a brides magazine.

Love is more than a diamond that sings.

Love is more than a thirsty first look into your newborn's eyes.

It's more than the wedding dress.

It's not all honeymoon.

It's more than ebb and flow.

And yes, we signed up for it with words like "richer or poorer" and "better or worse".

Love is more than going grey and growing comfortable.

It's more than love letters.

And I find it today in a thank you note.

Dear Prayer Group,

I would like to thank you for all the many prayers that have been made on my wife's behalf. She has a dreaded disease (Alzheimer's) which has advanced into the last stages according to her doctor, but I know the Almighty has the final say, and I do believe in the power of prayer.

I have been so very blessed to have her here at home rather than in a nursing home. We have had a very special life of almost fifty-two years together, and I do still love her very much. I even enjoy the days we are having now.

Again, thank you so much for your many prayers.
Chuck*

Love is happily ever after ... no matter what.
Because love — truest love — never fails.

  2. This reminds me of Robertson McQuilken. He was the past president of Columbia Bible College in SC. He cared for his wife so sweetly after she was diagnosed with early onset alzheimers. I am grateful to know we have examples of true love all around us.
