Yes, we were high school sweethearts. Different high schools, but sweethearts nonetheless. I love him still. We didn’t need to scratch the 7 year itcch. We didn’t want each other to drop dead at a decade. We didn’t lose the fire at fifteen. We didn’t think twice at twenty. Today it’s twenty-three. We don’t want to be free.
We made our commitment to each other and to God twenty-three years ago at 4:00 in the afternoon. God was our witness. He was and He is a member in this three way covenant we made. Many trials and storms have come and gone in our life together. God has always strengthened us at just the right time.
We are Lowell and Laura…always and forever…until death do us part.
Lowell, I love you no matter what, no matter where, no matter….
Father God, I love You and I thank You for the grace and perseverance and trust in each other that You’ve given us. Thank you for teaching us very early never to say the D word, no matter what.
Happy Anniversary Honey!
