“A Three-Fold Cord”

“A Three-Fold Cord”

My hubby’s warm, friendly, engaging smile
My hubby’s dreamy, sparkling eyes of blue
My hubby; my one, and my only true love
My hubby; my best friend in the world, too

His life and mine; he and me, hidden in Christ
An eternal, an endless union; a three-fold cord
His heart and mine; beating as one, in harmony
Forever to the praise and the glory of our Lord

Ecclesiastes 4:12 (NASB)
A cord of three strands is not quickly torn apart.

“A Marriage”

“A Marriage”

This isn’t about a passing fancy or romantic whim
This isn’t about clever-sounding words or rhyme
It’s about a steady fire kindled within the heart
It’s a flame of love grown stronger with time

It’s about learning the fine art of compromise
It’s about the gentle balance of give-and-take
It’s about truth, honesty, friendship, and trust
It’s about the willingness to forgive a mistake

It’s an unpredictable adventure of discovery
It’s about two personalities blending as one­
It’s a marriage, with Christ as its foundation
It’s a husband and wife united in God’s Son

(as an aside, I thought I’d mention that the following song was sung at our wedding back in August of 1987)
