Our Life

There are a lot of things that are happening in our life.
Financial stress family problems and a very worried wife.
These last few months between “us” have been hard but our love has grown strong.
Put together several years ago by Our Father it’s our love for Him that makes “us” truly belong.

Health has played a part in these last few months.
In faith we’ve prayed for His aid to fix this problem, Faith truly counts.
My wife has become my strength she is my rock her faith is steady.
Whatever the Lord wills she says, whatever, she is ready.

Life is short sometimes the Lord takes His time, He has His own plan.
We’ve prayed for a better world, better health, yet sometimes it’s hard to understand.
Testing blood, x-rays, MRI’s, Doctor’s evaluations reports can’t find the problem at hand.
So we remain strong together in convictions and in faith, she prays for my health it’s the way God does things, it’s His plan.

We as Christians remain faithful to God, His ways are the best.
The blockage in the urinary tract are the problem this I must confess.
It matters not to her lovemaking as we face this problem, what matters to her is my life.
So yes, she gladly puts that on hold, she worries for me because she is a very devoted wife.

As a man she is going without because of medical problems yet it matters not to her.
That part of our life is minuscule there is no problem there.
It bothers me at this stage, to her it is no a problem she loves the Father and me, and she doesn’t let me be discouraged.
We pray, laugh, cry together in all things, through her devotion and faith she gives me strength and courage. 

Does this problem affect you my brethren in some way?
Does this mirror a problem you might have? My advice? Be strong in faith and pray.
God answers prayers somehow He finds a way to make love known to the faithful.
If you have a devoted wife like mine, count that as a blessing, Love the Father and His Son and be truly grateful.
