I love Jess because she thinks my dancing is funny.


I love Jess because just having her in the room with me makes my life better.

I love Jess in the quiet of the night because her breath calms my mind and brings peace to my life.

With a bleeding sky slowly spilling

The last dregs of light and life for the day

To my left

And a pale moon, bright against a purple sky

Shining brilliant with its reflective glory

To my right

My eyes and heart stare straight ahead

For there lies the road that leads me home to you

If I could sit for a thousand years

And gaze at nothing but the beauty of the wind swept sky

– Its particles of dust and light triggering burst of chemical flashes of beauty in my brain –

It wouldn’t satisfy me like your nearness does

Or calm for one instant the yearning in my heart for you

… I am a man who will fight for you honor …

You have an honor and a glory that is so valuable that it is worth ‘giving up’ so many other things for.  In fact, it is so valuable that I gladly give up these others for you.

I love Jess when she laughs so hard her faces turns as red as her Native American heritage.

I love Jess because she is BEAUTIFUL!

From Wikipedia:

Beauty is a characteristic of a person, place, object, or idea that provides a perceptual experience of pleasure, meaning, or satisfaction.

The experience of “beauty” often involves the interpretation of some entity as being in balance and harmony with nature, which may lead to feelings of attraction and emotional well-being.

The Koine Greek word for beautiful was “ὡραῖος” [hor-eye-as], an adjective etymologically coming from the word “ὥρα” [hor-a] meaning hour. In Koine Greek, beauty was thus associated with “being of one’s hour”. A ripe fruit (of its time) was considered beautiful, whereas a young woman trying to appear older or an older woman trying to appear younger would not be considered beautiful.

your skin so soft
and sweet to touch
it stirs my heart
it fills me much
with simple songs
that sing you praise
your love for justice
makes glad my gaze

and in our hands
one day we’ll hold
orphans, children
that seem too old
and tears of joy
will fill our eyes
as God is honored
and the world surprised

that those unwanted
happiness find
through tears and struggles
and love divine
for in our home
no child shall feel
unwanted, unloved,
for God is real

I love you Jess!

Hello Jess. This blog is for you.

In it you will find a short list of 251 reasons I love you, 52 videos that say I love you, 52 poems that speak of my love, and several posts about days that matter to us. My hope is that through these posts you will see just how lucky I am to have you as my wife. No human here on earth compares to the joy and satisfaction that you bring me – and this is my inadequate attempt at expressing this to you.

Most of the posts that you are going to find will show up magically in your email inbox each day (I took the liberty of subscribing you to receive the updates 🙂 ), but since I know you so well I have decided to pack today with a few posts to give you a flavor of what I have gotten you into. This years Christmas gift is going to be one that keeps on giving all year long.

Jess, I love you and Merry Christmas.

P.S. You can expect three additional posts today – one with a few reasons that I love you, one with a poem that speaks of my love for you, and one video that says I love you.
