You were added a year to Twenty-Nine,
as You bring more joy to this lover* you call “Mine.”
If a man should grow old fruitful and love-filled, (indeed)
I am the one** that you have married.
You turn shadows into colors,
Your wisdom dries the worry of tomorrows,
If a spouse is counted friendship-wealthy,
I am best-qualified because you are my Lady.
You nurture motherhood by grace-bound faith,
Your dedication to our child***, who can equate?!
If a father can raise godly children,
I am a proud teammate of their godly mother.
You warm my heart with your persistent loving,
Your commitment to God beautifies your aging.
If a husband is called blessed for his wife,
I am in daily encounter with blessedness**** my whole life.
You make my heart write its gratitude into feasting endlessness, for
Your life resembles the most beautiful of a woman's essences.
If a day is annually named "November Tenth,"
I am always praising our God to a highest extent.
Happy Birthday, my Honey! Thank you for the very sweet and wonderful life that you are sharing with me. If there is a man who married the most beautiful woman who ever lived, I am that man. #forever #forlove #forChrist
