"And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall."

Helaman 5:12

My two most favorite poems

I want to share just a taste of the poet I married.
(Do not use without permission.)

Heaven’s Gate
(February 14, 2004)

A world of darker days was mine.
The held-back rays of shining sun
Would penetrate as fate allowed,
Until with joy met I an one

With whom I then could be at peace,
Or, with joy both speak and hear.
None such feelings ever rose
As when to you my heart was near.

And now to hear your voice I live,
To touch with joy and warmth your hand,
To move through all of life with you,
And weave a path, as feet on sand.

Laid out now in plainest truth
Is shown our plan of life at last.
I want with you to spend my life
From here to heaven’s gate, and past.

(February 14, 2005)

Tradition binds as thinnest string
When duty comes to call,
Yet duty fades to second best
When honor stands us tall.

Honor fades as evening light
When oaths are spoken true.
A list of bonds all freely worn,
Where bondage frees us, too.

We each are living day by day,
Distinct yet truly bound
By all of these, and something more,
A love most gladly found.

A love that is the strongest yet
Of bonds both old and new,
A bond I seek and bear with joy,
The love I have for you.

Both written by my dear other half--John.
