“Eight”

What a delight marriage is! And what a joy these eight years of marriage to Stacie have been. This poem celebrates that.

“Eight”
July 30, 2013

Eight: the number of the years
Since face to face we spoke
The vows that made a covenant
That we will not revoke.

By the goodness of our God
The Two left One for life,
As I became the husband to
The woman now my wife.

For these eight the joy has been
A fountain overflowing,
Full of blessings undeserved,
With love and laughter growing.

The story we have lived for years
Is part of something greater:
A union of the Church and Christ,
The Bride and her Redeemer.

May our daily lives together
Show and tell this Story,
As we await the Wedding Feast
With Christ the Groom in glory.
