Time passes...

Matthew James and Vicki Jean,
where have gone the years?
Years ago, I vowed to never say that-
now the tears...
Eleven years ago, the doctor
told us "It's a boy!"
Two years later, "IT'S A GIRL!"
just added to our joy!

The Holy Word admonishes us
to redeem the time.
Some ways that it was done by me,
however, was a crime!
But, for the most part, I feel we
have done good through the years,
and truly there is joy contained
in many of these tears!

Matthew James and Vicki Jean,
your mother is my crown,
and you be the jewels of it-
sparkling blue and brown!
Help me as I grow up with you
in the vision of
the Father, Son and Holy Ghost:
hope and peace and love!

"Eleven years ago," ...and that was 14 years ago!
"WHERE HAVE GONE THE YEARS?!"
The years have gone to
elementary...
junior high...
high school...
colleges...
universities...
and some of the years have gone to where they shall never recalled at all...unfortunately.
But I treasure the memories that are...as long as they are! (Stop laughing, Matt!)

"Train up a child in the way that he should go, and when he is old he shall not depart from it."
Proverbs 22:6
