Second Anniversary

Love in companionship and in romanticism, growing together as two awesome friends, going through hard personal moments, holding each other's hand and encouraging each other to keep going.
And oh, the good moments! Making each other laugh to tears, dance ridiculously and making up stories and songs. The endless conversations on Skype, on the couch, at the dining table, on a picnic rug at the park, at Mei Li, Three Monkeys and the Groove Train in Brisbane, the bench on Pedro de Valdivia, Bravissimo and the walks to and fro the shopping center near home in Santiago.

We celebrated on the 6th of March, 2012 two years of being together regardless the distance between us for some time, we are a walking testimony that LOVE CONQUERS EVERYTHING and THERE'S NO FEAR IN LOVE, BUT PERFECT LOVE DRIVES AWAY FEAR.

We have nothing to fear, but a life to live together.
In this day, we celebrated Ryan being bold to hold my hands and saying "I want to grow with you". Soon the big day will come when we hold hands and say to each other "I want to grow old with you" in front of a large number of witnesses before God and also before the law.

I waited for so long, part I

Hey, hey, hey!
G'day mates! Hola amigos!
Tonight, being 1:32 a.m. I am online listening to one of the most beautiful albums in the world: On the shores by Jonathan and Melissa Helser.
Have you ever felt like music comes to your life to be the soundtrack of it? Yes, like in the movies!
Well, this is exactly how I felt a couple of days ago.
Ryan was super excited when this album was released (deep in his heart, he still wants to be a reporter and write for the Rolling Stones magazine or something similar - I know he'll write about the music in heaven sometime soon, which is so much exponentially cooler!), he played the songs a few times and I still couldn't click or simply fall at the lyrics because I could hear lots of shouting and truly, my phlegmatic temperament, my quiet heart beating slowlier than normal and my inherited passivity led me to rather stay away from that music for a bit.
One afternoon when I just wanted to collapse in the couch, Ryan came super excited to tell me the story behind a song called "explode my soul" and I heard the story, not really paying attention to the song.
2 days ago, while in the kitchen, I thought of the story and then heard the song and BAM! It hit me!
She screams at the top of her voice "I waited for so long just to sing this song".
Her story is that she spent 8 years without being able to play the guitar because of a psoriatic arthritis and finally God healed her (using a breakthrough medication), her husband gave her an acoustic guitar and she wrote that song that night.
"What He promised is what He gave!"
"Hello Promise Land ... I waited for sooooo loooong...."
What was revealed to my heart is God gave me a promise which I understood partly, it was the confirmation for Ryan and me to start this relationship, but it was so much deeper, a prophecy to be accomplished word by word in over two years...
