Back in the old days,
When marriage vows were said and kept;
There was a true commitment,
Not just two hearts that lept.
There was a bond established,
With love at it’s core;
Two people reaching forward,
Not back…to days of yore.
A lifetime together,
Never the two to part;
A love that grows stronger,
Not for the weak of heart.
I know of what I speak,
Almost 50 years of wedded bliss;
True…it’s not been easy,
Still, it’s something we’re glad we didn’t miss.
There were times…the road was rocky,
Shaken to our very core;
But, we found that love sustained us,
Drawing us closer to our LORD than before.
He (Jesus) performed His first MIRACLE,
At a wedding feast in Cana…that day;
A joyous celebration…until,
All their plans had gone astray.
No more wine…the water pots were empty,
No more wine…it was all gone;
“Fill them up with water”…He said,
The first time…His Word…they depended on.
And, they were not disappointed,
When the MIRACLE appeared;
The very best of wine…poured out,
Dispelling all they had feared.
So it has been in our life…together,
I say ‘life’ (singular) because it’s so;
For our LORD has made us one,
As closer to Him…we did grow.
He has saved the very best ‘til last,
The years together…mellowed us;
Another MIRACLE performed by our LORD,
And, the results are seen, thus...
Thank You, LORD for that MIRACLE,
Binding us together with Your Love;
The cement…the glue we needed,
Changing us daily…by Your Love!
