Soil and Roots
The Journey is long, yet surprisingly fleeting
the road is bumpy at times…
but wildflowers grace the edges of our lives
and sometimes even sprout up, right through the middle of the concrete
Some weeds push through even the most manicured landscapes-
trying to produce irritation and strife…
but when we retrieve water straight from the well
it floods our lives with nutrition and nourishment.
To be in this garden with you is a delightful privilege
as we labor together in love.
It takes diligence and determined care-
yet, its harvest produces priceless treasures.
Its growth adds richness and satisfaction; feeding the soul and heart,
Trusting it to the Makers hands and waiting for miraculous sights.
It takes tenderness, sweat, and faith to plant and cultivate as this-
but, few joys are as fulfilling as experiencing this Journey with you.
For you Hubby.
Who is a giver…
Who strives to follow God…
Who works hard and leads by serving….
Who flirts and builds up and keeps on loving…
Who asked over ten years ago and answered prayers and dreams by making me his Mrs…
Thank You God for this man, for this love that has grown deeper and sweeter with time, transition, and trials. You have transformed us and continue to grow us- may we love each other better every day. Help me to be a giver- more like him- not a taker. Thank You that You are the example Lord of the ultimate Giving- giving all for true love.
