TO MY SPOUSE


You stood by me, Bon,

    Even when a pastor raped me
    with his words;

    Even when another pastor
    refused to allow me to visit his
    church;

    Even when a third requested gifts
    of thousands of dollars, but
    refused my simple invitation to
    dinner.

You stood by me.



You prayed for me without ceasing;

    Even when betrayed by a relative
    that urged you to divorce me;

    Even when later accused by the
    same relative that any mental
    disorder I had was all your fault;

You prayed.


When Jesus redefined "love" in the
Bible,

    He spoke of finding someone that
    was wounded,

    And not running away or avoiding
    them,

    But pouring in oil and wine,  and
    saving the  life that was almost
    gone.

Those that study the Bible called Jesus'
words "The Parable of the Good
Samaritan".

I've studied you, luv.  

And I am privileged to call you 'My
wife'.

Thank you for listening to His words
and daring to live them.

You are so often His Bible that I read.

Much love in Christ, always;
