The Stuff of Life

Ode to My Husband



The flowers which burst forth from the rose shrub beist crimson

The blossoms burgeoning on the violet plant beist blue

For these long months ‘ere have I been seven and thirty

Presently thou hast become seven and thirty too.

Happy Birthday Mr. Harms.

If I were Elizabeth, you’d be my Mr. Darcy – minus all the hateful stuff at the beginning 😉


Author: Kim Harms

I am the wife of a guitar-playing, worship-leading, adventure-loving husband. I am the mother of three incredible sons: two of whom recently surpassed me in height, and one of whom I am going to pretend is still my baby. I am saved by grace; a daughter of the King who was and is and is to come. *** I am a regular contributor at Today’s Christian Woman, a monthly blogger at Inspire a Fire and have freelanced for a variety of publications including Chicken Soup for the Soul and Guideposts. *** The 500 Dresses ministry that I started with my mom in 2010 is our way of answering the call to serve those in poverty.

  2. To thee I must reply a great thanks for being one so amiable as to marry such a fool as I. I will have to tell you: you have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love, I love, I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on.
    You can be my Miss Bennett anytime:)

  3. The sentiment which so beautifully flows from your pen has filled my heart with gladness and to my soul brought delight. 🙂

  4. Thanks Marilyn! It was taken on our 10th anniversary trip to Hawaii. Blue rasberry shave ice. Yum 🙂 Since I just finished reading Pride and Prejudice, Corey and I have been having some fun trying to speak in 19th century English.
