// Graduation //

This journey began so many years ago,
when two pledged that despite mirth or woe,
eternal love upon one another they'd bestow,
and train their children in the way they should go.

We were carefully taught and schooled,
by a mother whose firm, gentle hand ruled,
and a father who was rarely ever fooled,
when our innocence we thought we'd proved. 

School was tough and growing up tougher,
but our parents a wise word would offer,
advising us that though we suffer,
against God we never murmur.

When at last the days were few before graduation,
and to high school I made my final salutation,
my heart overflowed with joy and celebration,
and to God, my gratefulness beyond articulation. 

   Dedicated to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and to my godly parents who have faithfully trained my siblings and I in the fear of the Lord and have willingly sacrificed their time and interests to teach and care for us.

    1. Thanks so much Bethany! I pray the Lord will continue to lead me in paths of righteousness, for only from there is where true happiness comes from.


    Excellent poem! (I laughed about the part "and a father who was rarely ever fooled, when our innocence we thought we'd proved".) ;)
