Words From Our Heart...My Husband Wrote Back To Me - Poem by Maxine Sousley

The lessons we learn from our failure
are lessons that help us succeed
and if we are wise and we heed them
then failure is just what we need

God is the one who sees the whole
his knowledge is fully complete
we see but portions of the truth
as lines the never quite meet

It was only a brief little note
and a word that was prayerfully spoken
yet not in vain, for it soothed the pain
of a heart that was nearly broken

For better and for worse, we pledge
through sickness and through strife
and by the help and grace of God
we will keep our vows for life

I love you with all of my heart and soul! ! !
Your husband Sparky.
