IT OCCURRED TO ME…
February fourteenth of this year,
A reminder of our life-time cheer…
Twenty-six years we’ve stayed
Since the first exchange was made,
For since then we’ve become very dear!
In the year nineteen eighty-eight,
My prospects for love weren’t great…
Then out of the blue
She wrote to you-know-who,
The first step in finding God’s mate.
My Prayer Letter found her just fine,
I was a Missionary at the time…
The suggestion was strong
From my blind date (that bombed),
She wrote after proper prayer time.
By March twenty-seventh, that year,
We met with Sunday School cheer…
She liked who she saw,
He was handsome and tall–
They were engaged by May third, same year!
A year and a month to the day
Later, both families could say…
Related by marriage
Cannot be disparaged,
Now that these two are on their way.
