river flows in you

"I am like a lily among thorns,
so is my love among the daughters..
I sat down in His shade with great delight
and his fruit was sweet to my taste.
He brought me to the banqueting house
and His banner over me was love.
Sustain me..
Refresh me..
For I am lovesick"
Song of Solomon 2:2-4

What a comfort that Bible verse is to me right now.

I walked down the aisle to this song 6 months ago.
It brings tears to my eyes because
absolutely nothing compared to the smile on my
husband's face as I walked each step closer to him,
ready to begin our life as husband and wife forever.
If only we could go back in time and re-live moments,
that's one I would live over and over again, it was truly amazing.
I miss him with every ounce of me and
would give anything to see that smile right now.
I hold this song very dear to my heart because of the
smile I see when it begins to play.
