S: 10 Reasons I Love You
BC: Created with love by Hannah especially for you, Ben
FC: Let me count the ways...
1: It all started on April 26...
2: your love for God | "There are three things that amaze me— no, four things that I don't understand: how an eagle glides through the sky, how a snake slithers on a rock, how a ship navigates the ocean, how a man loves a woman."
3: Proverbs 30:18-19
4: your ability to make me smile
5: "As the ocean is never full of water, so is the heart never full of love." | Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm; for love is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave. It burns like blazing fire, like a mighty flame. Many waters cannot quench love; rivers cannot wash it away. If one were to give all the wealth of his house for love, it would be utterly scorned. | Song of Solomon 8:6-7
6: 1 Corinthians 13:4–8a Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
9: your sense of humor
10: your big hugs | Ephesians 5:25
11: Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.
12: your laugh makes me laugh
14: 6 | you are a family man | There is no greater love than to lay down one's life for one's friends. You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you slaves, because a master doesn't confide in his slaves. Now you are my friends, since I have told you everything the Father told me. | John 15:13-15
18: your positive outlook on life
20: There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. We love because he first loved us. | 1 John 4:18-19
21: your thoughtfulness
22: 9 you are always there for me
24: you are my best friend
25: There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace. | Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
