Tomorrow Is Our Anniversary

Good heavens! Forty-six years ago, that was: we drove down to Elkton, Maryland, and got married–August 8, 1977. After the ceremony we went fishing.

What are we gonna do to celebrate? Oh, I don’t know. Neither of us feels like going anywhere. I’d love a visit to the Seaside Boardwalk–with somebody else driving. Tool many kamikazes out there on the Parkway.

But we will have crab cakes. That’s a once-a-year treat. Whatever we wind up doing will probably depend on the weather.

I hope God knows how thankful we are to Him for bringing us together.

    It seems you have done what I wrote about in this poem.


    When it’s not just ink stains
    Dried upon some lines.
    Nor a mere, fleeting glance
    That holds you for a time.

    When words in truth are spoken
    And dear as life are held.
    When silent thoughts not uttered
    Bind long as life does dwell.

    And the ring is just a token
    Of what lies within the breast.
    And honor and character
    You can, with trust, now rest.

    When the face is like a flint
    In righteousness to hold.
    When duty to the vow
    Will never let you go.

    When reversal and calamity
    All around you see.
    And time and chance transpire,
    Your mind unchanged will be.
    When unshaken in resolve,
    That marriage blessed you’ll see.

    Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing and obtaineth favour of the LORD.
    – Proverbs 18:22 –
