Our 47th Wedding Anniversary
by Mary T. Hoffman

Today we celebrate year forty-seven
Of being married – a bit of heaven!
Working to help those most in need –
Peacefully, patiently we proceed
Till fellow creatures will be freed;
Knowing that our time’s well spent
Fulfilling God’s original intent.
No more will cruelty abound;
No more blood will soak the ground.
No animal will go to slaughter –
Just another word for murder.
Truth will reign around the earth
When suffering’s replaced by mirth.
To bring God’s vision to fruition,
Every day’s a celebration
When we honor God’s creation.
