Wendolene Warrior in Jesus

I We make much of forgiveness; there's joy in receiving Until I loved Wendolene, I had not been forgiven Not in this way: I am able to believe Jesus, the Bible, Moreso now, because I have received from Wendolene Love AND GRACE. Siblings, love without grace is a shell! II Yes, I did not change; I still speak truth to power - Even to all our children (blended family?) young, cocksure ... Yet, pastoral-caregiver I am, I wait long before coming strong With the Word of God, the Sword of the Spirit; equal as we are Radical Equality before God as sinners (if you prefer, prone to error) III Yes, Wendolene showed her loyalty through highs and lows If truth be told, her grown child needed a court interdict, Protection! We stood for the right: to teach limits, respect others' rights also She loves the LORD Jesus. Finally, I can pray as family, Unison Not perfect, either, but strong in the armor of God, daily in His Word

Sir Harry, if I may add (confidentially) Wendolene's 23-year old daughter needed to be stopped from interfering with us, via a court Interdict. Some call it a Protection Order (for us, the couple, from busybodies).
