There are many chapters
Throughout of lives

From toddlerhood to
Keeping up with the latest toys
Fighting through our teen years
Learning to adult in our twenties

Choosing a career and meeting our love
Marriage and becoming a parent in our thirties

Losing your sense of freedom
And never looking back
As your schedule now revolves
Around the patter of young-ins

Soon your celebrating forty
Reliving your years through the
Eyes of your young child
Experiencing the joys and sorrows along the way

Before you know it
Fifty is around the corner
Planning for college or weddings
For your amazing offsprings

Retirement is around the bend
Our sixties become about finding yourself again only with a deeper and more knowledgeable state of mind

Grandkids enter your door
To the smells of freshly baked cookies
Tons of hugs and kisses
For those sweet little babies

Through turmoil and days of smiles
You’ve experienced the graces God bestowed upon you

We enjoy front porch sitting
Celebrating 55 to 60 years of marriage
With the love that still melts your heart

To the day we enter a new house
A forever home with our Lord
Thankful as you look down
On all the blessings life had given

Chapters are about progressing
Never looking back
Embracing where you’re from
And living with hope for the future

Each one brings us closer
To a more fulfilled life
Remembering the past but not living with in those days
Grasping the days to come
Welcoming what the world has to bring
