Many years ago we started with a Dance. Through the twirls and whirls of life; we have become as one in love, in purpose and our love will last forever~I have often asked myself why I have been so blessed to have such a good man to be my eternal companion. I feel like I have loved him forever and perhaps I have. He has brought such joy into my life. He is a kind, gentle, loving, forgiving, caring, and attentive husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. His children have been deeply blessed to have him as their father. What once was thought of as a lecture by children is now wise counsel as they go to him in troubled times.
He has brought into our marriage a love for our Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ which is strong and true. He is a faithful follower of Christ and I feel that he emulates so many of the Savior's divine qualities. Perhaps not perfect in them all; but he strives to be a disciple of Christ.
I feel so privileged to be his wife and the mother of his children.
I thank him for the countless hours that he has given to provide for our family. I thank him for loving me, and supporting me in all my endeavors. I love him with all the fiber of my being. Thanks you Roger for the last 45 years of a marriage filled with deep and abiding love. I would say with out doubt that we have established a "Partnership of One".
As found in the book; "I Challenge You" by Paul Dunn comes the following thought:
Is the objective of marriage.
It is a synergistic oneness where the whole is greater
than the sum of its parts,
A oneness where the husband and wife are
joint heirs together (1 Peter 2:7),
A oneness where the man is not without the woman
nor the woman without the man in the Lord (1 Corinthians 11:11).
Again, oneness does not mean loss of individuality,
oneness means one song,
where two separate string, each with their own vibration,
harmonize to create one composition......
The oneness God sees for man and wife
is a glorious thing, with
each supported and strengthened and inspired by the other -
rejoicing together (Proverbs 5:18)
finding joy together (Ecclesiastes 9: 9).
It is the oneness through which each partner
says to the other,
"With your love, all else in the world is bright."
Let's bring our song and dance away the night ~
