Blessed beyond metric of mind,fathom of soul,or comprehension of spirit.

I have clarity of conviction that ringing with undeniable authoratative tone revels,

‘Blessing is mine’I know,feel and hear it.

The Lord’s favor is poured out upon me with powerfully surging waves beyond degrees.

He’s given me a wife that’s friend and lover, my children’s loving and guiding bevel,

Value reaching far beyond rubies.

Man may gift and transfer wealth from one generation to those that follow, even by demand.

Yet none can give a spouse of worth, bearing integrity, to trust, formed of that precious metal.

Providence alone’s graced me your husband.

Happy Birthday, my love.

    Ooh, I’m late to the party, but it sounds like your man made the supreme ode. Happy Birthday, belatedly. Glad to know that you’re a June babe too. Next year let’s inaugurate the anniversarial celebrations of being 39–again.
