November- Knowing You

An Essay By Keri // 11/9/2012

 How can I keep from loving you? I asked myself that question over and over again. I tried so hard to find a way to keep our friendship while keeping my heart locked up. But there you were. You wouldn't stop caring for me. You wouldn’t stop being the match for me. You wouldn’t stop being wonderful. Most of all you wouldn’t stop crawling into my heart even though neither of us tried. You were so kind and so precious. I opened my heart to let you in because I couldn’t figure out how to keep it closed. I especially had no way of knowing how to keep it closed from someone like you.

What is the happiest moment of my life? Was it when you gave your heart to Jesus? Was it when I found myself free to love you? Could it be a time that I just sat back and watched a smile on your face and in your eyes? All I know is that every moment that I’m your girl is happy.

It’s been a year since I met you, but it didn't take a year for you to change me and my life forever.

How do you know my soul?

But this is lovely. I'm so glad for you.
