A Father Rejoices in the Engagement of His Son



An Ode to Engagement

Two lives were connected some years ago
In the quaint, tiny town of old Shiloh;
Where families gathered with strong desire
To worship the King, the Lord, their Sire.

Tim was a Horn, and Lauren a Davis,
Who could have known that one day they'd save us
From the routine of an everyyear spring
A season now blessed where we laugh and sing.

Sober and serious, yet with a smile,
Tim pursued Lauren o'er many a mile.
Determined, persistent, full speed ahead,
His courtship was marked with flowers so red.

Lauren showed laughter and full zest for life,
Discussing issues with which Tim was rife.
Careful always to look to her father
For guidance, wisdom, his imprimatur.

With joy look we now for the day to come,
When Tim and Lauren will two become one.
To 'stablish a household where Christ is the King
And truth is proclaimed through all their offspring.

What a beautiful tribute! May God make it so -- To 'stablish a household where Christ is the King
And truth is proclaimed through all their offspring.

Blessings,
