I remember when I would have nothing to do when the rain came down outside;
I'd get out my crayons to make something new, a stained-glass picture long as it was wide.
I'd scribble black lines all over the page, it just looked like a mess; but that was just the beginning phase, adding the color would bring out the best.
Every place where the lines intersect, I filled it in with a color bright, and soon was absorbed in what would come next, a window glowing with jewel light.
I think of each day together is something like this, at first we don't know the design, but as the time passes, we fill in spaces as we wish, coloring with love between all the lines.
Each loving word a bit of red will bring and a gentle touch of the hand adds some blue, all of the rainbow we joyously fling, making a masterpiece just for us two.
Every day the design is different, making the picture new, and every day we find wondrous new ways, to show how our love is deep and true a beautiful picture to view.
I thank God every day that you are in my life, that He made my dreams come true, there is no greater joy for me than to be your wife, and color more pictures that say "I love you!"
