I haven’t posted in quite a while, and I’m not going to apologize for it. I’ve been busy with other things. Last time I was away for a while it was not due to being busy, especially, it was more due to procrastination, but when I apologized for it I was told by a lot of my readers in comments, to not apologize and beat myself up, but to write when I felt the inspiration to do so.
Well, I felt inspired for several reasons today. The first and foremost of those reasons is that today is my wife, Katrina’s, birthday. She turns eighteen…again! I’m amazed, truly, because I didn’t realize she was that young when I married her…
I also need to get a blog started for her. As I mentioned before, she writes most of our missionary newsletters and updates, and up until recently, I was simply emailing those out to all our friends and supporters. While on furlough a few months ago, I realized that a blog would be the perfect medium for her newsletters. So keep an eye opened and we will be letting you know when and where you can begin to read those.
Without further ado, I’ll post my most recent poem. It’s all mushy and such. I just wanted to express some of my feelings toward her in verse. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
Eighteen AGAIN? How do you do it?
You look the part as always.
I’m afraid God might have blessed me too much,
with a wife that perpetually stays,
as young as a spring chick
in earliest May
with the spirit of a foal
in the meadow to play.
You revitalize me with your ever flowing fount
of energy, joy and grace,
and I give thanks to God for the heart that you have,
and I’ll do so for all of my days.
I wish you, this year, on the very first day,
that you’ll not falter in your pace.
But, I will be by your side should you wish to lean
on my arm or to seek my embrace.
