I do!


That day!

That summer day when we finally said I do,

I was young

I was naive; clueless.

I didn’t understand love; its truth.

I didn’t understand love and the knots that bind it; how far it stretches,

I did not understand patience,

Compassion and kindness,

not being proud,



Not to be irritable nor resentful

I did not understand true love.

But since that day, when we said I do,

I continue to mature

I have matured so far,

I continue to understand love

Love for what the Bible says it is;

Love in our marriage,

The love that is kind



Forgiving, enduring….

I truly DO!!
