A ring made of haribo gold

There once was a lady called Ellie,
She got lunch down the road at the Deli,
But - one day there came change,
And - a life rearrange!
Now her knees wibble-wobble like jelly!

The man, he was fearless and bold,
With a heart full of love and not cold,
He dropped down on one knee,
With a face full of glee.
Gave a ring made of haribo gold!

"I will" came her words in a rush,
He was startled and then turned to mush!
So they rushed to be wed,
(5 mouths still to be fed!),
Now they live in a house in a crush....

The years they passed happy and true,
A love made in heaven that grew,
Getting closer and stronger,
(and ears getting longer)...
then off to the Jesus they knew!

We're engaged !

  6. A friend is a gift of God

    Among the great and glorious gifts our heavenly father sends,
    Is the gift of understanding that we find in loving friends,
    For in this world of trouble, that is filled with anxious care,
    Everybody needs a friend in whom they’re free to share
    The little secret heartaches that lay heavy on their mind,
    Not just a mere acquaintance, someone who’s ‘just our kind’
    For somehow in the generous heart of loving faithful friends
    The good God in his charity and wisdom always sends
    A sense of understanding and the power of perception
    And mixes these fine qualities with kindness and affection,
    So when we need some sympathy or a friendly hand to touch,
    Or an ear that listens tenderly, then speaks words that mean so much,
    We seek our true and trusted friends in the knowledge that we’ll find
    A heart that’s sympathetic and an understanding mind.
    And often just without a word there seems to be a union
    Of thoughts and kindred feelings, for God gives true friends communion.
