Travel is wonderful
It takes us to friends
It connects us with family
Our little world extends
Visiting family is a treat
Especially on special occasions
Participating in events
Receiving honored invitations
Our oldest grandson, Mike
Married the love of his life
We were blessed to be there
When they became husband and wife
Mike and Tania were sweet –
Sent us photos from their honeymoon
Some of the scenery was
Enough to make us swoon
Love is beautiful when it’s new
Full of promise and creating dreams
God blesses those who build hopes
On His Word and what it means
1 Corinthians 13:4-7
“Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy,
it does not boast, it is not proud.
It does not dishonor others,
it is not self-seeking,
it is not easily angered,
it keeps no record of wrongs.
It always protects, always trusts,
always hopes, always perseveres.”
While we were blessed
To be able to go and see
Our loved ones who live afar,
Home is indeed a great place to be.
I loved being able to go
Up into my sanctuary again
To spend time with my angels
And time in prayer – Amen!
(Yes, I know you can pray
Anywhere you are – every day –
But there’s something about a place
Set aside for that in a special way)
We loved being able to have
Bob’s former student and his wife
Come and spend time with us –
Sharing our home – sharing our life.
Returning to our church family
Was a treat for us as well –
There is comfort and joy
Being where Christian friends dwell
One of my dear Ennis buddies
Took care of my plants while we were gone
Another came and took care of our yard
Checking the flowers and mowing the lawn
Enjoying the company of our pup
Is another bonus of being home
Our TazE is twelve years old now
She’s loved by dear friends when we roam
Ah yes, it’s a blessing to be home
We appreciate from the bottom of our heart
All that our family and friends did
But we miss our bed and pillow when we’re apart!
We certainly enjoyed Andre’s phenomenal cooking
All the Swiss cheese and bread it contained…
But it’s time to return to my cooking each day –
While we take off the pounds we both gained!
Come visit us, dear friends.
We’d love to see you here.
We’ll take you to Dave’s Sushi –
In Bozeman – a city that’s pretty near.
Or… just feed you here at home –
It’s a blessing to be here, you know.
And a blessing to travel and see family –
Where is a spot that you’d like to go?
