“Yes, we do.” chirps the love birds.
Wide smiles, white lace, and shining eyes filled with hope.
Today spells the end of aloneness. Now they are one.
In a beautiful home of rooms filled with love,
Memories are made and the future springs on.
Like a fragrant garden fed with water and the sun,
so their loving home thrives in the light of the Son.
In a year maybe more, there’s the sound of small feet.
So full of promise and hope in the Lord,
they nurture the bonds, they rear up their young
and celebrate each day as a gift from Him.
Sweet time rolls by. The lovebirds chirp on.
Some realities loom and losses come.
The love changes shape but stays strong and unwavering.
Now life is less about lace but more about strength.
Each day they give thanks as they hold hands and pray.
The balancing of bills can wipe some joys away.
They remember their Source as they manage resources, and give back to the Lord
as Paul said to do.
Their toddlers grow older and school days begin.
Working and living by love's rules is challenging.
They still love each other and plan to for always.
"Marriage is honorable and the bed undefiled."
Never thinking of doing anything else except loving; they make plans for the future and keep making ends meet.
Love birds, remember Pastor's words!
Yes, remember that “Will you take?”
means “We do, and forever!”
