~Ephesians 4:26-27 NIV
On our honeymoon, Adam and I decided to splurge a little and bought ourselves two presents for our new apartment. The first present was a mirror stand. Very pretty and practical, we still have it and love it. However, the second present we bought was a little bit more meaningful. We bought a sign very similar to the one pictured below with the same phrase because it reminded us of that verse in Ephesians. I know that this sign is everywhere now and you might be sick of seeing it, but I fell in love with the sentiment.
But I am proud to say that there have only been one or two nights over the last three years that we have not managed to at least kiss and say "I love you" to each other before going to bed. (I'm not counting the times that we have been physically apart from each other) And sometimes despite the kiss I still go to bed feeling a little annoyed, but there is something magical about even the act of kissing your spouse that takes the edge off the anger. It is almost impossible to be really really angry at someone that you've just kissed. And there is also a certain safety to it. I know that no matter how angry we are with each other, there is still love and that is not going away. And that is why this sign has hung in our bedroom in each of our three apartments, and will always be featured prominently in any future bedrooms!
Give me a kisse and to that kiss a score;
Then to that twenty, add a hundred more;
A thousand to that hundred; so kiss on,
To make that thousand up a million;
Treble that million, and when that is done,
Let's kiss afresh, as when we first begun.
Oh, and these kisses never hurt either! ;)
Love you Adam!
