Children by the Sea

Far away on a western shore
In a city by the sea,
A child was born to navy folk...
Her name was Linda Lee.

And far away on an eastern shore
Where seasides glisten white,
A child was born in a navy town...
His name was James Fredrick Wright.

But more than miles did separate
These children by the sea.
Their blood, their faith, their hopes, their dreams...
They grew so differently!

But youth cares not for differences.
They say that love is blind.
Fate's wind blew hard, their paths did cross...
Their hearts became entwined.

Youth's folly sent a stormy sea
The children sailed for years.
Yet love did grow aboard their ship
Despite the pain and tears.

For Mercy, too, sails stormy seas
To calm life's angry waves.
She led their ship to Calvary's Port
And taught them Jesus saves!

Two children born on distant shores
In cities by the sea,
Two hearts entwined forevermore...
Jim means the world to me.

God is Not Against You - He Came on an All Out Rescue Mission to Save You


...in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them... 2 Cor 5:19

Therefore, my friends, I want you to know that through Jesus the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you. Acts 13:38

"Two children born on distant shores In cities by the sea, Two hearts entwined forevermore... Jim means the world to me." What a romantic poem! And since I read in your bio that you and 'James' have been married 40 years, this makes it even more romantic. I like your style of writing. Keep writing.
