What connects my heart to hers?  Heartstrings.


Its the way she smiles when she wants to get my attention.

Its the way she still gets dressed up for me.

Its the way she desires to win my affection.

Its the way she knows me that no one else can see.


Its the way I want to protect her against any harm.

Its the way I stare at her when she doesn’t know I’m looking.

Its the way I still think I can stop her with my “charm”.

Its the way I she stops me in my tracks without trying.


These are the heartstrings we share.

They are for us; no one else.

They are specifically designed for us and us alone.

…greatest girl i know…

credit: Lisa HesselToday is a special day for me.  It is a more special day for my wife.  Today she turns 25!  Yep, that is right – she is a quarter of a century old.  Where has the time gone?  When I first met her she was a young buck at the age of 18.  Now she is 25.

I wanted to take time today and honor my wife.  I want to do this because I think she deserves it.  First off I believe that she is the prettiest girl I know.  She rarely doesn’t look good.  When she is tired – she is cute.  When she is angry – she is hot.  When she first wakes up – she is glowing.  When she smiles – I melt.  She is always attractive and beautiful in my eyes.

She also has a faith in God that has shaped and changed/matured my faith.  I’m a guy who likes to worry and be anxious about a lot.  But she will roll with the punches and lives pretty carefree because she knows God is in control and that He will provide.  I used to worry about seminary classes, money, my car, decisions, bills, paying for the wedding, etc.  And she would sit there and just say “God will take care of it.”  And she wasn’t just being trite – she meant it.  She knew that God would provide.  Today I still worry but not nearly as much.  Wanna know why?  I decided to listen to my wife, trust God with my problems, and watched Him provide for us in ways I had never imagined.  Her faith in God has matured my own faith in God to be much, much stronger.

I used to pray for a wife who would challenge me and encourage me in every area of my life.  I no longer pray for that because I got it.  Our 5 years together have been a lot of fun and I know that we have 65 or so years to go before we are done.  I love her and couldn’t imagine myself with anyone else.  Well, I guess I could imagine it, but I know I wouldn’t be happy because anyone else isn’t Tiffany.

I love you tiger.  Happy Birthday!
