My Heart Overflows With Happiness

To my husband:

I was thinking this morning of all the rushing streams we saw along the roads when we were traveling on vacation this June.

The stream beds were all different...at times they were wide, other times narrow...the rocks in the stream bed on one stretch of the stream were small and close together, and the water flowed over them almost without a ripple...other places, the rocks were large and irregular, thrown into the stream bed like roadblocks, trying to stop the water...but the water found a way around them, or even over them...and the water never stopped.

Our love is like the water in a stream...and the stream bed is the hours in our days...and the rocks are all the experiences and events that crowd into those hours...and at times, all the moments are calm and full of small events.... little moments of love and delight.... and the water flows over them with joy...other times, our days may have boulders in them.... the times when what we are doing doesn't go right, when problems arise, when trouble tries to loom ahead...but the love we share isn't stopped by any of these...it finds a way around the boulder....or at times, even leaping up and over the boulder.....for the water of our love is full of the grace we receive from Jesus, and we can draw on His strength to get past any turbulence.....and the wonderful thing is....it is the rocks in the stream bed that cause the lovely sounds the water makes on it's journey ......a delight to hear and see.....just as you are a continual delight to me.....the rush of love I feel just seeing your face....the warmth of your touch......the joy of being in your arms......all make each day of our lives a wonder to behold.....and my heart overflows with happiness.
