Dear Lord, yesterday was our
59th wedding anniversary,
and we planned to go out to dinner,
but our car was in the shop
and wasn’t ready. So we will
celebrate tonight instead.
It’s important to note special days
and take the time to reminisce.
We are fortunate to have each other
when so many men and women
in this retirement community are widowed.
Thank you, Lord, for our many years
Then the man said, “This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; this one shall be called Woman, for out of Man this one was taken.” Therefore a man leaves his father and his mother and clings to his wife, and they become one flesh.
Hymn: O Perfect Love
