To me, this day is oh so personal. It's very close to my heart, because He is. He is the absolute love of my life. He means more to me than any thing or person, dream or wish. He is my everything. And I owe Him everything. To me, He's not some far-off figure from history or some character we read about in vague stories in the Bible. He is so real and so close. He is my Prince, my knight in shining armor. Girls, imagine an amazing, beautiful, brave, passionate, sweet, strong, precious man. He rides up on his white horse, rescues you from perilous danger and frightening death, and then gives his life for yours, dies for you - as He whispers, "My darling, I love you." Would you not be oh so in love? Would you not swoon and be head over heels in awe of this exceptional man? Well I have news for ya ... Jesus is that man. To me His love is intimate, close and just as real as any human relationship I have and even more special and exciting than any romantic relationship I will have with a husband someday. Today, I am overwhelmed afresh by His phenomenal, infinite, beautiful love for me. And you. Oh do you know Him? Do you know His love? Do you know this man who died for you? Because believe me, if you don't, you should....and you can. He is just a whisper away. And remember, His whispers are sweetness itself, wholly desirable. And He loves you....He loves you more than you could ever comprehend.
And no matter what you are going through - He understands. He has suffered, too.
He suffered so that you might have life, healing, hope and joy - forever and ever into eternity.
