A couple years ago, I received permission to read this poem at my sister-in-law's wedding. A couple of 70 years marrying. It was selected because it expressed so honestly the value of a faith-filled marriage.
This poem truly expresses the marriage they had and their relationship. Sadly, I am going to be reading the first verse at the memorial service for my brother-in-law this weekend. But, it still holds true as anyone who knew the couple knew of his great love for his wife. While their time was short, it was joyful!
