I want to share a love letter I found while posting fliers at Illinois State University for our upcoming event. It is beautifully made, and the world deserves to see it.
Here is the front:
The inside reads:
I just wanted to thank you for everything. I don’t care if we’ve been dating since the 8th or 18th of March. All I know is that I am extremely grateful to God for having you in my life… All those times when I say you’re everything I’ve wanted in a man, it’s because it’s true! The more I get to know you, the more I tell Christ ‘really?? This is who you had me waiting for so long!?! He’s amazing!’ I’m telling you, Joshua, He spoils me beyond my imagination. Mi Josue, mi querido, mi amante (lover hee hee), thank you for being patient with me and for helping me understand what it means to love and receive it. Despite me leaving in two months or so, I’m so excited for the future God has planned for the both of us separately and together. I adore you (in the informal sense) and I can’t wait to kiss you once I get better. MUAH!
I was not planning on posting any art this week. I wanted to wait until after DrawingLove came to ISU. After finding this, I knew I had to share it. It is so sweet to see a hand written letter. I was amazed by the beauty of the calligraphy. I like that I was able to get a glimpse into another couple’s life. And I felt like you deserved that opportunity as well. My challenge for you this week is to write a hand written letter to someone that you love. In a world filled with texting, instant messaging, emails, and phone calls, we don’t take the time to write a letter. I was touched by the time put into this, and I hope you were too.
DrawingLove will be at Illinois State University on Thursday, April 29th from 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM. We will have tables set up outside of the Center for Performing Arts building. Come by and draw some love for us. Let’s just take the time to create some art together. And I promise, the world will be touched by our effort and our love.
