Elizabeth Barrett was one of England’s great women poets. Robert Browning was one of the giants of the Victorian Age of Poetry. Their meeting in 1845 marked the beginning of what came to be known as the “perfect companionship.” They were married in 1846.

One evening, Elizabeth Barrett Browning rose from the supper table, moved to her husband’s side, and shyly placed a sheaf of papers in his coat pocket. On those papers were written her “Sonnets From The Portuguese,” considered by many to be among the finest love poems ever written. For Elizabeth Barrett Browning, the poetry was a record of the growth of her love for Browning and his for her. Browning was fond of teasingly calling his wife “My little Portuguese” because of her dark complexion. Hence the title, “Sonnets From the Portuguese.”

In that first draft which Elizabeth had placed in his pocket, Browning read this beautiful line: "The face of all the world has changed Since I first heard the footsteps of your soul". That is a very beautiful thing for a wife to say to her husband. But it becomes even more beautiful when we realize that this is what the Christian says about Jesus the Christ. The face of the world has changed since we first heard the footsteps of His coming. The face of our world has changed since we first knew a love that is closer than home.

..........“God’s love was revealed to us in this way: God sent his only Son into the world so that we might live through him” (I John 4:9).
