Grumpy and Dot

This world of ours has precious few
Unordinary folks like you,
Who rest not in their strength alone
Nor trust in wisdom of their own,
But recognize that perfect love
Comes from the heart of God above,
Who gives, unmeasured, loving’s skill
To all who strive to do His will;
And through these years you’ve found your bliss
In pleasing Him; and knowing this,
I do not marvel at the ease
With which the two of you did squeeze
A thousand years of love sublime
Into just fifty years of time.
