Thirty Years or Forever

Never underestimate the power of two lovers;

their hearts beating in time 

with the One who fashioned hearts.

How enamored we are with the prevailing idea of romantic love wherein one woman is overcome by the adoration of one man or vice versa—lovers complete in, and permeated by, the other. If this love was a diamond, it would last forever. How marvelous is the moment, however brief, when we dare to believe that, maybe just maybe, one other human on this planet chooses us—and in so doing becomes co-conspirator of such a glimmering reality.  Indeed, how marvelous it was to land in that moment, daring to imagine myself to be that one lucky human being, maybe the first ever! I was the protagonist, the leading lady.
