A Pearl (of a wife).



She is home making stew
He’s at factory.
She does Lessons
In Home School
Two brave kids.
He moves steel
And sends shipments on skids.
(Meeting truckers, patient energies.)
What an honour to
Be in her corner.
And to have her sweet
Love every day.
And to share in the Gospel
When able.
Testify, study, pray, share.
Quiet times when we sit
Doing nothing.
Soaking in one another
We’re there.
