Cherished Partner

From Psalm 85:10-11:  “Steadfast love and faithfulness will meet; righteousness and peace will kiss each other.  Faithfulness will spring up from the ground, and righteousness will look down from the sky.”

Country music entertainer Marty Robbins (1925-1982) was a gifted vocalist and songwriter.  In 1970 he wrote and recorded “My Woman, My Woman, My Wife.”  His efforts were awarded with a Grammy for Best Country Music Song.  This song served as some of the inspiration behind this poem.

If I were starting my family over again, I would give first priority to my wife and children, not my work.

From Psalm 90:12:  “So teach us to count our days that we may gain a wise heart.”

Blessed sun rises, starting a new day

A precious day, under Lord’s watchful eyes

Celebrate this day, riding in love’s sleigh

Nothing ever holding back, watching doves fly

 

Singing of praises, blessing this fresh start

Jesus walking with us, our daily bread

Sharing this day, between loving sweethearts

Together, God’s Word keeps us full and fed

 

Our love sparks an endless celebration

God’s love filling hearts, fulfilling our fate

Singing songs, with love and adoration

Celebrate this day, love’s delightful taste

 

Jesus shares His joy, smiling from above

Making our joy complete, filling with love

Quiet Love

From 1 Corinthians 13:12-13:  “For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then we will see face to face.  Now I know only in part; then I will know fully, even as I have been fully known.  And now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; and the greatest of these is love.”

Montana to Ohio

God joins this woman and man

Love bringing His precious gift

As only He really can

 

Love begins with our Father

Nurturing words speak each day

Hand in hand, with each other

God’s grace and peace lights His way

 

Love matures, like fall’s harvest

Built upon God’s rock of trust

Daily hope breathes at sunrise

Walk under angel’s stardust

 

Love meaning more than just words

Through valleys to mountaintops

Joining as one, each ribbon

God’s love never, ever stops

 

God’s Word builds a cornerstone for love’s words and actions in our lives.

From Song of Solomon 8:6-7:  “Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm; for love is strong as death, passion fierce as the grave.  Its flashes are flashes of fire, a raging flame.  Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it.  If one offered for love all the wealth of one’s house, it would be utterly scorned.”

Affirming Love

From Song of Solomon 2:8:  “The voice of my beloved!  Look, he comes, leaping upon the mountains, bounding over the hills.”

Sitting here, another morning’s darkness

Thinking of today’s most beautiful view

Your kindness and love arrives with a smile

Transforming this heart to radiant new

 

Traveling life’s lonely, meaningless road

Dreaming of unlocking a better life

Your cherished spirit bestows precious light

Joining together as husband and wife

 

Making beloved home for two love birds

Nurturing passion with each priceless day

Your tender, caring thoughts lead us forward

Navigating with God’s love, shows His way

 

Affirming love through joyful affection

Walking in Jesus’ perfect reflection

From Song of Solomon 4:1:  “How beautiful you are, my love, how very beautiful!  Your eyes are doves behind your veil.  Your hair is like a flock of goats, moving down the slopes of Gilead.”

Marriage Quotes

Dave Willis

Great marriages don’t happen by luck or by accident.  They are the result of a consistent investment of time, thoughtfulness, forgiveness, affection, prayer, mutual respect, and a rock-solid commitment between a husband and a wife.

Robert Brault

To find someone who will love you for no reason, and to shower that person with reasons, that is the ultimate happiness.
