I have been writing for sometime, but until now I did a lot of it in seclusion. Glad for the information that led me here. I love this literary outlet to express the deep things of the heart....and the not so deep!
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen. Heb. 11:1.

    Enjoyed your poem Vic and Carmen. Reminds me of some older couples in my church. The witness of our daily lives, in Christ Jesus, are those that are most clearly seen by man and most powerfully used by God.
