This morning, I heard this song for the first time, and had to share it with you. It's entitled "The Dutchman," and was written by Michael Smith (no relation to me). I wanted to share it with you, because it communicates the kind of love that old couples have for each other. Beth and I have known many old couples who have been examples to us in our marriage.
Growing old together is a bittersweet thing. No one wants to watch a loved one decline in physical or mental strength. But being there to take care of one another is what marriage is all about.
Beth, you and I are approaching twenty years of marriage. I pray for decades more. I look forward to the adventure of growing old together. I love you.
