Happy Birthday to the wife of my youth.

Happy Birthday to the wife of my youth. She's just as radiant as she was when I first met her. Some things have changed though; she has grown in wisdom, love, patience, sanctification, joy, number of children, children taught, responsibilities, friends, meals cooked, dishes washed, goodies canned, flowers planted, hugs and kisses given.......
and she has done it all with grace and beauty.

She is reverent in behavior, loves her husband and children, self controlled, pure, works at home, kind, submissive to her husband, and does not cause the Word of God to be reviled. Sound like a Titus 2 woman? Yes she is!!

But wait, there's more....

Her eyes are like doves behind her veil.
Her hair is like a flock of Goats leaping down Carrollton Hill.
Her teeth are like shorn ewes that have come from the washing.
Her lips are like scarlet thread and her mouth is lovely.
Her cheeks are like the halves of pomegranate.

You are all together beautiful, my love; there is no flaw in you!!

Happy Birthday!!

Want to know what a flock of leaping goats looks like. Melissa is lucky to have a husband that loves her so much and such a good Godly example and leader for her family
