My heart bleeds love as I glance at a picture frame of my love and I embraced in a kiss at precisely three-thirty three. I believe it was springtime in 2006 of May as Cam reminds me, “It was a picture of our wedding day.” With tears dripping down my cheek, I read what the engraved words say: “Loving one another with one heart and purpose.” Our lives were not prepared for what surfaced. Love holds when memories fade and when I can’t, love stands.
Ten years this Thanksgiving, my first stroke hit like a super storm. It completely wiped out my left side. Three days later I awoke and death lost all hope. Love is strong and brave. A second stroke came seven years later as a tsunami wave with scratching nails from the grave; but one Heart and purpose-serving God overcame. He has caused his wondrous works to be remembered and said. Because I walk through continuous storms of affliction, I write and declare love wins. Right now I am loved! Love holds when memories fade and when I can’t, Love stands.
I never felt more loved than when I wake up from strokes, unable to speak or walk and
You see love staring back.
I have never felt more loved than when I am in the valleys and I keep going through
And love keeps holding you.
I have never felt more loved than when I am weak and I fall.
He is my strength through it all.
I have never felt more loved than when I get to declare all that He has done.
I have never felt more loved than right now when I praise you and thank you God.
Love holds when memories fade, but hold onto hope and faith.
Because when you can’t, His love stands.
Dedicated to Caregivers and loved ones going through)
My love, who stands by me through it all
