Every morning, God, to me, displays his mercies new.
Radiant, warm, a woman marked by tenderness and care–
Indeed, to me, a tender rock and conscience you have been.
No gift I’d give could ever match the one in you I’ve found:
Joy unmatched, embodied in this wife God gave to me!
And now another year’s gone by. More challenges abound.
Yet through it all, fatigue and pain, you’re still my closest friend.
Now, we, blessed with foretaste of our hope, life’s trials bear:
Endless happy years with Christ, reflected here with you.
Happy birthday, Erin.
