I give you this ring as a symbol of our marriage. With all that I am and all that I have I honour you, in the name of our God. Amen.
Approaching twenty six years of marriage, my husband has been unrelenting in his love and support. Our vows: to have and to hold, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in heath, to love and to cherish until we are parted by death, have never been stronger. He could have walked away when I was so ill and medical bills mounted around us, but he remained by my side. Together we drew strength from our Lord. I know many prayers where uttered from his very soul when I was bedridden or housebound. He became my nurse and at times, my pastor. Physical pain can still overwhelm me but his love is my constant hope and my rock. He has been the love of my life and my best friend. My desire is to honour him, not just as my unsung hero, but the hero of my hopes and dreams.
Song for my Unsung Hero
(To the tune, Amazing Grace)
When I found you my heart was full.
Your love filled every need.
My Lord gave me my hopes and dreams,
a life of sincerity.
You held my hand when children came.
My hero I would share.
Our Lord showed me, your fatherly skills
and I’m forever blessed.
Through many months of ailing health
you stayed beside my bed.
My Lord showed me your caring side,
my hero that gave his all.
In times of wealth and poverty,
you always coaxed me through.
Our Lord helped us to beat all the odds.
Treasures I found in you.
When nights are cloaked with suffering
you soothe away my pain.
The Lord has blessed me with your tenderness,
with arms around me calm.
Amazing love you have for me
your heart is always true.
My Lord knew just what was required,
my genuine hero you are.
