An Irish Poem

My face in thine eyes

 thine in mine appears.

And true plain hearts do in their faces rest.

Whatever dies was not mixed equally

If our two Loves be one…

Were thou and I so alike…

then none could second,

       none could die.

I'm recently 29 years old, recently married and ready to change the world for God. He has called me to be a missionary! This means more than just changing zip codes and living in countries where I struggle (for a while) speaking the language the locals dream in. It means a lifestyle of sacrifice, audacious Hope and above all, a desire for Jesus simply because He is who He is. I moved to Franklin, TN in October 15th of 2012 and expect this to be the first of many changes for the great calling on the Gunter's life. Side note...I dig being married. It helps when you're married the best woman ever! Teale and I feel called to plant churches, combat sex trafficking and be a place of refuge and Holy sojourn to all who would seek to join alongside us for good or for a season. For now, Ol' Rocky Top is our home, Zoey is our Great Dane and we, the Gunters, love Jesus with all we have.

  1. …Actually, it’s an English poem. We studied it in one of my classes recently: “The Good Morrow” by John Donne. (It was, however, recently passed off as Irish in the movie “Tristan and Isolde.”)

    It is lovely, though. Love, defying death… a very romantic sentiment, but only true in the context of Jesus…
