I love Him.

It's easy to say (although it hasn't always been so). In the words of Spiral Staircase "I love you more today than yesterday, but not as much as tomorrow". He seems baffled sometimes at my declarations of love. So, this is an explanation of "why" I love Him.

Love is not a big event. It's not explosive. It builds up over time, and intensifies through persistence. It doesn't diminish with time - rather, it flourishes. It is the culmination of the ordinary acts of everyday life, spliced with moments of passion, sacrifice, heroism, charity, sorrow, and joy. It is what we have built together. Every day for 10,957 days.

One reason...

Because He is still here. Persistence may be the most underrated attribute of love. I have to admit some of those days I was not my best - we were not our best. But here He is...

...and I love Him.
