My good blogger buddy, Oneta Hayes at Sweet Aroma, provides me with a perspective I appreciate on several fronts. Here is just one of them, albeit a BIG one. The idea of covenant in marriage is not one that is fairly understood, much less practiced, in our so-called modern society. The idea of sticking with someone through thick and thin (of which I believe they’ve had both) may seem a bit old-fashioned, however…
Here is Oneta’s tribute to such an “old-fashioned” idea. Hat’s off to you, my friend!! And God bless you both!
WITH LOVE TO SAMMY, 63 YEARS
Home, fortunate to be my pleasant place;
my hubby and I talk face to face.
Home, all my belongings there I stash;
got a lot of stuff, just not cash.
Home, cars can park on my one acre lawn;
afternoon naps when I yawn.
Home, food and drink and company too,
if you were near, we’d invite you.
Home, a place to have the family meet,
games and songs and plenty to eat.
Home, sixty-three years since we were wed,
tied the knot with unbreakable thread.
