– Two of The Best words Ever Said –

 

hearts_311771Being I post my stories
In the middle of each week
I have to say today’s is extra special
Why? Here, I’ll let you take a peek

Ever since Chris and I met
I knew he was for me
I don’t even want to imagine
How living without him would be

Thirty years ago today I said
Two words still solid and true
What are those two words, you wonder
Those two simple words, ‘I Do’

Yes, thirty years does stand out just a hair, but that’s not the reason I’m sharing this. My main purpose is to show others that if Christ is your guidepost in your marriage, through thick and thin, good chance your anniversary number will get bigger.  Just remember . . . Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;  does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil;  does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;  bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. – 1 Cor: 13:4-7 (NKJV) –

I’m sure not saying it’s easy, but as Jesus said, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” ~ Matthew 19:26

 

Hard to imagine, yes
that Marianne is now a poet
It’s not just you that thinks that way
It’s even been hard for her to realize it

(Okay, so maybe I’m not that great of a poet.)
