Uniquely Unlocked

 

I am so grateful for my wife and all that she does. I wish I could be out there helping her right by her side. I love and appreciate her with all my heart. She truly is a blessing.

I had such a sheltered and spoiled background. I breezed through my childhood so fast that it’s hard to remember it. I wanted so badly to grow up and be an adult, a wife, and a mother.

I had a pretty awesome upbringing with loving parents, a big wholesome family, a kind religious community, and I was even a Girl Scout. But is it possible that sometimes things can be too perfect that you miss out on living and experiencing?

I have Stone City Blog on my mind right now. It is a collection of blogs written by men in prison, which I manage. Honestly, I’ve struggled with putting in all those hours helping men who couldn’t give me much in return.

I help men in prison share their voice with the world. At first, I choked on my own voice when telling people this. It wasn’t something I wanted to brag…

The Sweetest Letter From My Husband

I will always remember the exact moment I read this very letter. A flood of tender love & emotion ran through me and instantly healed my heart from hurtful words. I truly felt what it is like to forgive quickly and to forget all previous painful conversations. It was as though this letter hit the “refresh” button for my mind and heart.

It’s hard to explain, but I instantly felt safe. Such a huge burden was lifted off of my shoulders in a single second, and replaced with pure wholesomeness & comfort. I completely love my husband and how he snuggles so perfectly into my heart and soul.  ❤

Hello My Sweet Ladylove,

I love you…I miss you.

Early on in our relationship I said some things according to how I felt at that time. I said some things that formed in my mind as a result of being single, alone, and in prison…

Suzie Comes To Visit

    She defecates in the wilderness then wipes with stinging nettles. She eats things that would make a billy-goat puke. She has learned to ignore cold temperatures, frost bite, and pain…for she IS Suzie Marie Jennings!   Okay okay, perhaps the above is a slight exaggeration. But I have to acknowledge the relentless dedication … Continue reading Suzie Comes To Visit

Love Is An Action

I absolutely love my wife’s most recent post about how love is an ACTION. Suzie is an INCREDIBLE woman! I am so blessed to have her as my wife.

Through experience, I am learning that love grows when it is expressed and put into action.

I’ve been doing a lot of research about love. And I am able to take something valuable from everything I read on this beautiful and fascinating subject. There are all sorts of opinions, theories, and point-of-views out there about love. As it turns out, people have been trying to define what it is for centuries.

Sometimes we should just go back to basic simplicity:

“Dear children, let’s not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions.” (1 John 3:18 NLT)

Honestly, I was having a difficult time finding my role. Being the wife to a man in prison, I am unable to show my love in conventional ways like: cooking him meals, washing his clothes, rubbing his shoulders after a long day at work, calling him on the phone, maintaining a…

My Shining Star

I love my beautiful wife and the way she articulates our love.

I’ve heard many people refer to their spouses as their “rock.” It sounded good to me, so for a while I called my husband my rock, too.

But was I just copy-catting that phrase without truly knowing what it meant to me?

I know what my husband means to me. And when I think of him, he is sooo much more than a rock. So I found a more fitting metaphor that resonates with our love…

He is my shining star!

And I am his shining star, too.

Wikipedia says:

“…Binary and multi-star systems consist of two stars that are gravitationally bound, and generally move around each other in stable orbits. When two stars have a relatively close orbit, their gravitational interaction can have a significant impact on their evolution. Stars, especially when more distant, often appear to the unaided eye as a single point of light, and are then…
