Another Priceless Gift

I told you last about the wonderful woman who raised me.  I will ever be grateful to God for selecting her to give me life!
Now, I MUST give a shout out to another mother: the one He chose to bear my children!  And, trust me, she puts up with MORE than MY mother did!  I was with MY mother for 21 years.  I have been with my wife for almost 41 years now, and I love her more and more each day!!

Her hands are always busy making
The value of her works, for it
surpasses any "man's!"
But humble she remains, completing
every task in life;
"WHO AM I?!" to God I cry,
that I can call her 'wife?!'

She ably takes the reins in things
I can no longer do.
Regardless of life's difficulties
she keeps pressing through!
Regardless even of my antics,
she remains around.
who keeps this family sound!

"Father, thank You for the lady
You chose for my life!
Because of You, she overcomes
all pain and grief and strife!
and presses she through, even now
that years have taken toll.
Her touch--it is still able to
massage my heart and soul!
And, through the pain, her very hands
would busy yet remain
with tasks that, in the end, become
somebody else's gain!
Selfless, generous and loving
be those very hands--
anyone who knows my wife
completely understands!

God bless you Debby Busby!  One day alone is not sufficient to cover the honor and gratitude that I/we have for you!  I love you.  Jesus loves you.  And the list of lives that you affect goes on and on and on...
May you somehow realize the value of you in our lives!  You are so beautiful!
