So high aboveSaid the Bad Boy Preacher to his Wife:

You have always been…

sweeter than my sour

hotter than my cool

finer than my coarse

calmer than my storm

more faithful than my doubt

prettier than my ugly

Better than my worst

You have always been…

my antithesis

my antidote

my balance

my cure

Thank you.

Happy birthday.

I am a lover, a fighter, and a midnight writer. I love football, hamburgers, and philosophical inquiries. I love Jesus more than any of that. I love my wife, my daughters, my grandson, and my English Setters, Huck and Finn. I also love Huck Finn...and other seminal characters in American literature. Like Gus McCrae. I love the English language. I love to dive into the wonders of its depth and splash around in the shallow end where colloquialisms and slang rule and reign.
