Pre-Valentine’s Day thoughts for those who are married…
Some learn the lesson a little late–
that ways which seem to irritate
can become endearment, as God has planned,
of the one who wears our wedding band.
All it takes is some time alone,
without hearing their voice across the phone.
Day-to-day living without their smile
will make us miss their particular style.
Habits or ideas that seem amiss
don’t matter at all without their kiss.
Arms that enfold us mean so much
on a troubled day, when we need their touch.
A wise thing it is to put conflicts away–
In love, serve one another, and, together, pray.
Thank the good Lord for a love that’s true
and be glad of the moment you said, “I do.”
P. A. Oltrogge
