Milton, here:

Last night Kristy was able to go on a Valentine date with me. Except for doctor visits, she hasn't been able to go anywhere with me for several weeks. It was a super special night.

My Valentine card to her reads:

The last thing I expected
was to find a woman like you.
But here you are,
sharing life with me,
waking up my heart
with your sweetness,
filling my world with a love
more tender
than I ever dreamed of.

Being with you brings
a sense of contentment
that only you can give.
And in return, all I can do
is love you the best I can,
with the heart of a man
who knows how blessed he is.

Valentines Day

With all my love, Milton


Dear Milton:

Thank you for a romantic date last night. I reminisced about our dating days, and it was a lovely, nostalgic-filled evening. I wore the tiny diamond necklace you gave when we couldn't afford very much and it's now one of the most treasured pieces of jewelry I have.

You are my hero husband. You are my champion. You are my support. You are my all in all, and I love you so much that, as a writer, words fail me. Our love is deeper than the ocean and wider than the sea. It's timeless, it's precious, it's endless.

Last night was a reflection of so many previous romantic times we've shared. I love you now more than ever.

With all my love, Kristy


As we finished our dinner, I took several pictures of Kristy and the server took a picture of us together. Later, Kristy went to the powder room. As she left, a woman sitting right next to us leaned over to me and said, "That is one special lady. I felt something radiating from her. She is so pretty. She is like an angel."

Wow, if this stranger only knew!

Kristy returned, and we drove home—my angel sitting next to me.


How Is Kristy?

Just look up!

WOW......... KRISTY, you look beautiful! Looks you two had a lovely time together. Thank you both for sharing your special love and time with us. You and yours are still in my prayers. I am just thrilled you felt well enough to venture out on your date. GOD IS GOOD!
Was wondering if you received the pictures I sent you?
You both are so precious to not only Our Father, but to All of us as well.
Keep feeling better.

Kristy and Milton,
Your story is such an inspiration to me. I share it with others who are facing trials. I write a weekly Prayer Box email and have put you in it weekly (MPB - My Prayer Box) I encourage my prayer group to read your blogs. Milton, the one from February 13 so touched my heart. I would love to prayer walk past your home to feel that strong presence of God flowing forth. I keep praying for a miracle for you, Kristy. God is able. Praise Him and thank you for sharing your story. It is touching hearts and changing lives.
God bless,
MaryAnn Haslett from Pittsburgh, PA

Isn't God good? We can count on His sustaining love and grace. Thank you for reminding us all to look to the Lord always, and to remember that each breath we take is on loan from the Maker of heaven & earth. Life is so very fragile, but it's just the beginning for those of us who love and live for Christ.

You look positively lovely, Kristy! How wonderful that the woman in the restaurant felt the presence of the Holy Spirit emanating from you as you walked past! Glory to God!

Your love story is so beautiful. So touching. I wish you would put this story in book form. What a blessing you've both been to so many. Your love for one another and for Jesus just shines from your eyes.

Love & Prayers,

Kristi and Milton, my words will not allow me to express how deeply touched and inspired I have been by reading your blog daily. My prayers are with Kristi and your entire family. My wife and I just recently celebrated our first wedding anniversary. As we were enjoying a celebration dinner out, I found myself thinking about the anniversary meals the two of you have shared over the years. A personal prayer of mine is that I will always be the godly, loving and nurturing husband I should be. Milton, you are some of my inspiration. I am so blessed by your blog. I will continue to pray for all you.

Thank goodness we all serve such a wonderful God!!

Kristy, I have been exploring your archives here at Christian Love Stories. I find gems throughout your writing, bits and pieces that continue to bless long after you wrote them. Here's one from May 5, 2006 that bears repeating. I offer it to you today:

I speak blessing over my readers today, that something good will come about for you. If you're going through a tough time, God will bring to fruition Romans 8:28 in your life--He will bring something good out of bad. He will make the bad times work for your benefit. Be on the lookout to see this happen. Now press on this day in His strength. Take courage. Be cheered.

I don't know you personally, but we are bonded as sisters in Christ. That is enough!

Milton, I sent picture of mutual friends of ours to Kristys email.
Should I resend it?
God Bless

Dear kristy and Milton, thanks for sharing your photos of this lovely evening with us. I agree with the lady--all who know Kristy think she is an angel. I'm still praying that God will heal her and let her continue to be an angel on this earth for a long time.

I remember one date you two had many years ago when we were all at college. You and Kristy came to our little apartment and she worked so hard in our little kitchen to make a special cake for her boyfriend. Then, we heard her cry in the kitchen as she took the cake out of the oven and realized that she forgot the flour!
Much love to you, Sis Norma

Thank you for sharing your sweet love with us all.

As always, I continue to pray.
