"The greatest of these is..."

I have written before about why I appreciate Valentine's Day. So I today I simply offer these words to my Valentine, my Beloved Krista:

"A loaf of dry bread and bare earth for a bed
In the company of the beloved, is full of happiness.
Let humility be the word,
Resignation the offering,
The tongue be the mint of sweet speech."


-Anand Karaj, Sikh Marriage Ceremony, 1552

What a beautiful sentiment...I think Krista's pretty lucky to have you as her valentine. ;) I wish I had thought of something half so romantic...

'Til We Have Faces is one of my favourite books ever.

You'll hear about my Valentine's day soon enough.
