The Lord's Promise

Fred has aske me to put a poem of my own in.  I have many squirreled away, but found this among the papers in my folder here. 

I wrote this poem to my soon-to-be husband just before we left Mexico to be married here. 

                         The Lord's Promise

I never knew until that day
What promise the Lord would send my way.
I rested in Him - He was my guide
And He sent you to be at my side.
My heart rejoiced, but was full of fear
But fullness of love helped me, dear.
To see that service to the King
Is better with two than anything
And here we are - ready to start
A brand new life with open hearts
Open to serve, open to pray
Open to live in the Lord's own way'
I love you Robert, with my heart and soul
Together we'll make a perfect whole.
           Love, Penny
