23 Years of Marriage!

Dec 29, 2013Family Uncaged


Patrick and I have been married 23 years today. What a beautiful, amazing, surprising, sweet relationship God has wrought between us. I’ll celebrate with poetry…

The Journey we’ve walked together—a sonnet for my husband


The years we’ve journeyed through joy’s wilderness

Have brought us to a place we dared not see

From evergreens and clouds that never rest

To flattened lands where sun beats down on tree


It’s odd to think that such a place so dry

Would sprout in marriage from the loamy earth

An oak whose entwined branches kiss the sky

A testimony of God’s blessed mirth


Now unfamiliar roads we hesitate

By clinging hand to hand, we find new hope

In vista’s new, God’s grace does resonate

By weaving He in us a three-strand rope


Afraid, we do not see love’s twisting trail

Enfolding hearts to His, we will prevail
