He's my Jack Bauer, "24" and "7"




Several years ago I watched my first episode of "24" and I have been a fan ever since. For those not familiar with the show, I'll brief you...it is called "24" because there are 24 episodes in a season. Each episode is supposed to represent an hour in real time where the hero, Jack Bauer, is sacrificing his own life hourly to save the world. I must say it is a little too violent some times. Being someone that has craved peace my entire life, you probably would not expect me to partake of such a show...BUT...it's the hero, the knight in shining armor, Jack Bauer...that I'm drawn to. God has blessed me with my own "Jack Bauer" and his name is Mike. Recently I told him, "Thank you for making me feel safe and protected all these years". You see, that was very important to me. I grew up in a home without a father figure until I was 13 years old and until that time I very seldom felt "safe". That changed when I met Mike, I have felt secure and protected at all times, but even beyond that...I have shared laughter that I had not known before and felt loved immensely. Thank you my sweet man for being my hero!

"Soulmates" is the word that immediately came to my mind when I looked at the photo of you and Mike. The Lord blessed me with hero of my own, Mark. I'm so thankful for him and the security and love he has freely given to me these past 23 years.

No doubt, God has been good to you Sue, more than good!! You and Mike make THE sweetest couple. It's obvious he adores you and you adore him. Precious!
