We headed up north for our honeymoon show.
There were places to go and some sites to see,
We were having such fun just exploring her and me.
We were so very young just out of teen years.
This country up north would bring out some fears.
We never had traveled outside the USA.
But we were on an adventure, what could you say?
We rode in my pickup and we snuggled up close.
We were driving on love with the heaviest dose.
Around Lake Superior then through Winnipeg.
Then back to Minnesota, the very last leg.
But while up in Canada some sites we would see.
Which now seem quite hard from my memory to free.
I remember a campground where we slept in a tent.
To sleep with the stars was just “Heaven sent”.
And now here I sit in this present day time.
Just writing my story and I put it to rhyme.
This year will be thirty since this story began.
We’re still the best friends as we’re held in God’s hand.
Now who knows the future and what it might bring?
We might just travel north for our thirty year fling.
No matter the case she’s still by my side.
We’re always together when we go for a ride.
Maybe this time I’ll remember the sites.
It better be summer for the winter air bites.
The sites that we see we’ll appreciate more.
Through the eyes of our Savior His beauty will pour.
I thank you dear Lord for this country above.
May their people remember they are covered in love.
For they are our neighbors in a much colder land.
And together we’re stronger as we’re held in Your hand.
