Promises Made - Poem

Ephesians 5:31
Ephesians 5:31

I remember the day we married and

The promises I made you.


I promised to love you for the rest of my life

Even when you are not likeable and

During the times when life hurts.


I promised to support you emotionally,

Encourage you always,

Comfort you when needed and

Nurture you in everything I do.


I promised to be your helper,

Your partner,

To mesh my life with you,

To be one and no longer two.


I renew those promises to you because

I love you more today than on that day.

Excellent poem and the reality of marriage is not picnic, but you just do not throw in the towel, as you have stated here, when you make a promise, that means you keep it through thick and thin and that is what makes your relationship stronger. I have been married going on 35 years next week, and we have been through all kinds of brick walls, but we just never gave up. There is a lot of compromise for sure and just letting go of the little things or things that really are not worth fighting over. Thank you so much for this wonderful hub. In His Love, Faith Reaper

Faith , Congratulations on a 35 year marriage! Praise God and be proud. Today, a marriage of that longevity is unusual but definitely an inspiration. Thanks for reading an d commenting.

Mhatter99, You and Arlene have such a great idea. Looking at wedding photos gives me a warm fuzzy. It's hard to be mad when I have a warm fuzzy feeling. Thanks for reading. Glad you appreciated this.
