HOUSEHOLD OF FAITH:  FAITH, HOPE, & LOVE

Today is our wedding anniversary. I cannot help thinking how quickly the years (decades) have passed! I remain thankful for my spouse and for God’s blessings.

Together we have tried to build a home filled with faith, hope, and love. Some days we succeed but only with help from the God of faith, hope, and love  and only by His grace.

I wish to dedicate a song to my spouse of 34 years. Since early in our marriage we have been blessed by Steve Green’s music in concert and by recordings. The following song is especially meaningful to us.

HOUSEHOLD OF FAITH

“Here we are at the start committing to each other
By His word and from our hearts.
We will be a family in a house that will be a home,
And with faith we’ll build it strong.

We’ll build a household of faith

That together we can make,
And when the strong winds blow, it won’t fall down.
As one in Him we’ll grow and the whole world will know,
We are a household of faith.

Now to be a family we’ve got to love each other
At any cost unselfishly,
And our home must be a place that fully abounds with grace
A reflection of His face.

We’ll build a household of faith
That together we can make,
And when the strong winds blow it won’t fall down.
As one in Him we’ll grow and the whole world will know
We are a household of faith.”  (Marijean Green & Steve Green)

“But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love.”
(1 Corinthians 13:13)

“Let all that you do be done in love.”  (1 Corinthians 16: 14)

We have come to know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.  (1 John 4:16)
