His Hands





His hands have held me for over 20 years.

His hands have kept me warm, have held me

when I was scared, and caught my tears when they roll down.

His hands have pushed my hair out of my face when I was barely asleep,

and almost don't remember, but I remember for some reason.

His hands fill my tub and then wash my back.

His hands drive me to beautiful places and wonderful food.His hands have driven me down roads that I went unwilling and his


hands slowly released my grip into his, never being the first to let go.

His hands have made my burden light and the road I travel easy.

The day I wed I don't believe
I gave much thought to the hands that held mine that April day.
I didn't or couldn't imagine that the paths we would travel
would be so deep within woods and that I would need him
to hold my hand and lead me through. The deep paths of
losing parents and babies.The hard days, the bad days,
you don't think about much when you're wearing that dress.
That this man will lead you through.

He is..   
  
Still leading me through the thick forest that
we call life. The words I said 19 years ago
"till death do us part" were just words until recently...
some 19 years later and the "getting older"
is becoming a reality.

Until Death do us part.


Seems closer now.... Then It seemed then.

I don't want to imagine my life without him.
Without his hands that are always protecting, providing,
and prefecting in me what God can only do through marriage.  
 
His hands that lead me closer to the cross when he
opens the word and when the forrest is dark before us
the word he is holding brings light to our path. 

Beautiful light in the darkest of days
and the best of days.

I love you,

Happy Anniversary

Happy Anniversary!!!!!!!! My favorite part is when you wrote this:
