Sweetest Day Tribute to my Sweetie

Let me not to the marriage of true minds

Admit impediments. Love is not love

Which alters when it alteration finds,

Or bends with the remover to remove:

O no! it is an ever-fixed mark

That looks on tempests and is never shaken;

It is the star to every wandering bark,

Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.

Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks

Within his bending sickle's compass come:

Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,

But bears it out even to the edge of doom.

If this be error and upon me proved,

I never writ, nor no man ever loved.

William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616)

We are memorizing this sonnet for school this semester. Every time we recite it, it reminds me of I Cor. 13. It makes me appreciate being married to a godly man.

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
5 It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

ICorinthians 13:4-7

Love you Sweetie!

  1. Um, thanks for the reminder about Sweetest Day. Too bad my sweetie is leaving at 7:30 a.m. and we won't have time to celebrate. :-(
