Sometimes God reserves the good things
For such time that our life is most steady;
You had struggled with what life had brought
Because God knew that you were not ready;
Now you're eternally grateful for those
Who remained when you sought their face.
Though the years of absentia seemed lost
Never once were you from under God's grace.
Sometimes at God's urging you did things
Like seeking out those you'd once known.
Finding that in prayer they were waiting
And that their love for you had just grown,
Now your life is finally what you wanted
A loving husband and others who care;
Now you feel valued and ensconced with love
A love that God has given you to share;
