White Lace and Promises

Song of songs just rolled back the years to 18 December 1993 for me. This was the day I said, “I do” to my hubby Mark. Me dressed up in my white lace and satin wedding gown and Mark looking so handsome in your black tux. My heart still skips a beat when I recall the DJ playing our song, “We’ve only Just Begun” by the Carpenters. And my listening to the lyrics at this point in time, without a doubt has a very different meaning for me now. It is very apt now! It means more than the words itself. On that day- our wedding day, I was so naive and blinded by my love for Mark. I couldn’t think straight. Every moment was a blur. I vaguely remember the promises we made to each other and then it was me sipping away at a glass of champagne and not long thereafter being whisked off my feet to our honeymoon in George. There was no time for thinking about “So many roads to choose or we start our walking and learn to run.” All I wanted to do was “fly before the rising sun.” It never crossed my mind to breathe a word about “sharin’ horizons that are new to us.” Let alone “watchin’ the signs along the way.” And there was no mention about “ talkin’ it over, just the two of us... workin’ together day to day, together... We were both on cloud nine. And who could blame us! We were madly in love!

So, seen that Valentine’s Day is on our doorstep here’s my love letter to you my one and only sparky!

Dear Mark,

At times when I’m awake, I often wonder what goes on in your mind when you’re sound asleep. I listen to your quiet breathing. Do you dream of me? ... I’m always thinking about you. I smile as I remember how your eyes twinkle when we steal a kiss in the kitchen before the kids barge in. They always tease us – and tell us to stop,” coochy coeing!”

Of course, our marriage has gone through many seasons. How can I forget the wonderful summer seasons? The seasons that brought us those two little miracles called David and Nicola. And then there was that chilly winter season. I thought we’d never survive that! But with God’s grace we’ve made it! Yes, when we decided to put our hands in HIS and walk closely with HIM through those tough times, there was no turning back. I’m so glad that our marriage has entered this new season. I call it the season of hope and promise!

Looking back now, we have so many things to be grateful for. Yes, there are so many blessings to be thankful for. I know now that God has designed this love of ours like an unbreakable seal. I pray that God will help us to be forever faithful to each other. I know that with a little bit of patience, we could learn to love and serve each other just like God our Father.

I hope this love of mine will keep on burning for you like an almightly flame.

Your true love,


Prayer: Thank you for blessing us with the gift of love, marriage, children and relationships. Lord, let us never forget to show you how grateful we are for all your mercies. Amen
