For my 169th act of love, I wrote you this letter:
We’ll find out soon whether or not my work project—the one I’ve spent six months preparing—is accepted or rejected. In either case, I’m happy to know that your love for me won’t change. Thank you for supporting me through this project, though I know that it’s kept me from you often. Thank you for having confidence in my ability to do it well. Whether it’s accepted or rejected, God, our shepherd, still has good in mind for us and his mercies are new every day.
