Forgiveness. Praises. Continue to be with, bless and grow EJ and I, and the relationship we share. Build us and our foundation to last through to a fruitful marriage together. Be with our hearts and souls as we grow to be more committed to one another and build a strong relationship that can’t be broken. Quiet the scars of the past, negative opinions and energy and distraction to come between us or dim our lights. Give us stability, and emotional stability. Unspoken.
