T-Minus Two Days…

We are at T-Minus Two Days to Emma’s and Jake’s wedding…

I wrote this several years ago for another young couple getting married, and share it now with all couples, whether newly married or veteran…but most especially our daughter and future son-in-law.

THE GIFT

Suddenly a voice

broke the stillness,

a gentle breeze, whispering:

“My children,

I wanted you to see eternal beauty

So I gave you Michelangelo’s dreams

I wanted you to feel purest peace

So I gave you children innocently slumbering

I wanted you to hear endless music

So I gave you the night, singing three-part harmony

I wanted you to learn faith and hope

So I gave you tomorrow

I wanted you to share forgiveness

So I gave you grace

I wanted you to believe in miracles

So I gave you spring’s first blush

I wanted you to understand the depths of total love

So I gave you the nails that held my son to a tree

But above all else, my dear children,

I wanted you to see Me, know Me

Love Me.

So I gave you each other.”
