We have walked
this road together,
Through sunny, and stormy weather.
Yes, a lifetime ago it seems,
As we began with our hopes and dreams.
God's been with us through it all,
Like nineteen fifty nine, it was in the fall,
When we lost our son Jack.
He was so young to have a heart attack.
Yes God called him to his heavenly home,
Nevermore this earth to roam.
Our hearts were broken beyond repair,
As we fell to our knees in despair.
As we cried out, God met us there
Wrapped us in His loving care.
And began the long healing process
In ways we would have never guessed.
We have lived a life of plenty
God has never spared His mercy.
We've tried to let Him lead the way
And called on His name each and every day.
There's been so many good times too
That He has given to me and you.
Thank you my husband for staying with me,
And being as God would have you be.
Ephesians: 5: 23 & 25
Submitting yourselves one to another in
the fear of God. Wives, submit yourselves
unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.
Husbands, love your wives, even as
Christ also loved the church, and gave
himself for it.
