Amy is my girlfriend. I’m not to keen on the word girlfriend, it seems so temporary and elementary-ish. I’m not to big on labeling things. Things are what they are, and my relationship with Amy is what it is. We’ve decided to be exclusive and only see one another, even before the decision was made out-loud I’m pretty sure it was almost an understood feeling that both of us wanted to move further. As I write this she is in London for a class. I heard from her yesterday and she loves it there. Amy is unlike any other person I’ve met in that in some ways we are complete opposite, then in so many more ways we have the same views on the important issues. We each have common goals and all of these things help to bring me to ease. I don’t worry about what might happen next week, or if she’s going to dump me for some Frenchman with a suave accent. With Amy it is understood that our relationship exists only though the grace of God. I feel that as long as we continue to serve Him and do as He would wish of us, then we can’t go wrong. We both have the same views on religion for the most part. And anytime there is a difference, weather in religion or any other realm of life, we share our ideas with each other and make it a point not to challenge or change one another. She balances me out in so many ways. She casts a different light into my life and enables me to see things from a different perspective, for that I am thankful. I have recently devoted my life to Jesus, I’ve made a personal decision to walk in the Light. I’ve come to study the Bible much more. To realize that if I accept Him as my savior, my life is complete and so much richer. As an example of this new found “wealth” He has seen fit to introduce Amy into my life. I honestly believe that she was a gift from God unto me. Both of us strengthen the other when one of us is having trouble. Because of all of these things Amy is someone special and close to my heart. I know I could write for days here, but I figure I’ll just post some pictures of her/us and be done with it for now. I am truly thankful for this girl.
sorry this picture is so bright, We used a digital camera and the flash
is so BRIGHT. This was taken on our way to downtown Chicago, my first train!!!
This is Logan, I’m bear-sitting while she’s away in Europe.
This is a pretty bad pic. We were in front of the Arch, the air from the river was
freezing cold. Shortly after this we had our first kiss. How romantic huh?!?
030101 Tomorrow is our 3 month anniversary, I made this to give to her, it’s my first attempt at poetry and also my first experimentation with graphic art. Anyway here it is…
093001 – Amy called early this morning to talk, we have separated and it hurts. But as I’ve said all along all you can do is trust in Jesus to keep His hand in your life and keep you walking in the right track. At this time I’m not sure what it will do to our friendship, I hope that we’re mature enough to salvage one from the pain we’re feeling today.
