Love Letter 27

What a delight and a surprise to be writing this letter after all these years. It’s been hard to be so separated and to avoid the resentment that builds from misunderstanding but I had managed to do just that – assuming that what kept us apart was likely more my responsibility that anything else. And [Read More...]

Love Letter 26

It is perhaps true that I never loved you “like that,” whatever “that” means, but you should never take that to mean I did not or that I do not, love you. You and I crossed lives during times spent, in a cultural that drove a stake so deep in my heart I thought I’d [Read More...]

Love Letter 25

I love you. I really do. There you sat in our living room last night, (a place you have sat on other nights I should add), while I bounced back in forth between wanting to jump up and down screaming with delight seeing what you’ve become, and wanting to hang on your every word. You [Read More...]

Love Letter 24

Some days are hard to open up so I thought I’d pick someone easy to love today. Really, it is so easy to love you and there are good reasons for that. Your generosity of heart is just the place to start. It is enormous and it inspires me and it gives me hope. In [Read More...]

Love Letter 23

I am a lucky man. We’ve known each other our whole lives. There isn’t a time I know of that you weren’t in my life and that is a great thing. I love you for so many reasons – the way you spent hours and hours staring at the spider’s web in the Summer House [Read More...]

Love Letter 22

Every day is getting better. Each day we sing and its like the rhythms of creation are tuning us to one another. You know that our breathing starts to sync when we sing together. Brain waves settle in too. It’s more than a metaphor but it’s that too. We harmonize which I’m learning means that [Read More...]

Love Letter 21

A friend challenged me to write 90 love letters in 90 days. I’ve written them to my wife, to my grandchildren, co-workers, doctors, even to Robert Muller, (yeah, I know, it surprised me too). I heard some news about your future plans and this seems like the kairos for me to tell you how much [Read More...]

Love Letter 20

We’ve never met; you’ve heard of me and I’ve heard of you, but even without the requisite personal contact, it turns out I love you. I’m not kidding, I’m crazy about you. I’m hoping now that Michael clued you in, so you know this isn’t a creepy love letter from some sort of secret or [Read More...]

Love Letter 19

We’ve been at this a while – loving one another as Christ has loved you. When I think of where we began . . . how could we have known that such love would grow from there, that so much of our lives would be woven together? The love I have for you sweetheart runs [Read More...]

Love Letter 18

You are positively delicious, electrifying, and I love you. The passion within you stirs the passion in anyone who gets close enough to be lit up. Just look at your son, my God, what you see there is the result of sustained time in your presence. He doesn’t just live life, he wraps both arms [Read More...]
