Divorce

 

a promise made, before God and man

to love, honour and obey

come whatever

 

well or ill

rich or poor

good or bad

 

till death alone shall part you

 

yet all too short a time beyond

your words are tossed aside

the promise made before your creator

before His multitude

lies broken

 

and you care not

 

had you no thought?

had the promise you made no meaning?

can one promise God and not fulfill?

 

how casually devotion is treated

 

how often desire overwhelms it

 

would that we would turn to Him

trusting Him to sustain

when reality defies our dreams

 

If you are divorced and read this, I am sorry if I

have hurt you, that is not my intent. I wish merely

to express how unreasonable divorce seems

from my point of view. Having seen nothing but

devotion all of my life I cannot comprehend what

would lead to divorce other than marital infidelity.
