“To be loved but not known is comforting but superficial. To be known and not loved is our greatest fear. But to be fully known and truly loved is, well, a lot like being loved by God. It is what we need more than anything. It liberates us from pretense, humbles us out of our self-righteousness, and fortifies us for any difficulty life can throw at us.”
― Timothy Keller
The Meaning of Marriage: Facing the Complexities of Commitment with the Wisdom of God

Today is Anna’s birthday! What a great day! She is the absolute life of my life. She has been with me for more of my life than we’ve been apart. I can truly say that at this point in our journey she knows me better than any other. She’s been with through more “life” and has chosen to stay with me. Ups/Downs, Ins/Outs. She is my blessing from God.
