Day 39: Happy 4th Anniversary to Us!

A few words to share today (not my own). A friend sent us a card with this bible reference:

"May the Lord make your love increase and overflow for each other..." 
1 Thesselonians 3:12

I think an overflowing love for each other is a wonderful thing to be given :)

"Love is something eternal; the aspect may change, but not the essence"
Vincent Van Gogh

Impressive that his life was quite troubled and yet these are his words. I think it's true that the aspects of what we love in our partner changes over time, but the essence of love doesn't ever change. Unconditional love and loving a person completely means that you just love THEM. Not what they do or who they are. They exist and you love them :)

Just a side note that we got married on our dating anniversary. So we've actually been a couple for EIGHT years now!

That's all for today folks! I'll leave you with a some pictures of us as a couple from the last four years (at VERY approximately - not really that close to - our anniversary). Again, you can click on them to enlarge them. Apparently we never take photos of us as a couple in the fall!
