The first time you told me that you love me, the idea let loose all the butterflies and sent chills down to my spine. It baffled me at first. I even asked myself could it really be possible that you’ve already distinguished what love is about in a definite span of time with a capricious woman like me. Natakot ako bigla kase baka mag end up ulit na ako na naman ang iiyak at masasaktan sa huli. Then I remebered how you would always look me in the eye, how you would fill spaces between our fingers, the warm and tight hugs and light kisses – the reminiscing let the stormy anxiety in me be vanished forever- but more than these physical affection, a deeper realization hit me.
Why should I worry?
In the first place, you are the man who asked me from God through his prayers. You are that eager yet patient man who waited for God’s perfect time to pursue me – a man who’s not afraid of commitment.
You who would rather choose love over pride, a man who joins me and includes me in his prayers.
You placed God in the center of our relationship and rested in Him its purity and sincerity.
You returned to me the love, loyalty and respect I gladly offered to you and exceeded its degree and value.
We are never perfect but a relationship built by His grace and love, as I humbly believe, will always be persevering.
Every woman in this world deserves such an established, spiritually and emotionally, man like you and I must humbly admit I’m too blessed to have you.
Lo and behold, you are my 1 Corinthian 13 kind of love.
