On My Wife's Birthday

Lord God, I can't begin to say
all you have done for me
in giving to me
the loveliest bride,
the perfect woman,
the best friend
I could ever have asked or hoped for.

Thank you
for hearing my heart's cry 41 years ago
and thank you
for giving her in marriage to me 38 years ago.
And thank you
for every day with her since then,
days that could not have been
so wonderful,
so beautiful,
so warm and loving,
without her,
in Jesus' name, amen.

I'm sure she would say: " Back at you,Bob."
