I know this verse is true and I know that this is a command. I also know that there is no age limit set. I guess the real thing is that sometimes I do not know how to do this or that I just don't.
It is SO hard to find the balance of parents and fiance'. As marriage approaches and more and more things change this is more and more difficult. I will admit, I am HORRIBLE at taking the things that my parents say to me and learning from them or applying them. I know that they have more wisdom than me. It is almost like I act like they are out to get me. I know that they are for me and not against me but for whatever reason my actions show something different.
I know that I did some things to hurt my mom. I honestly don't even know that they are but I know that it has to do with my unwillingness to receive her wisdom and council.
I have been a fool.
The Daughter Wife
A ring on my left hand
A promise in my heart
Preparing to stand at the altar
Promising to never part.
Exited about the wedding
A wife I will be soon
Spending my days planning
Ready for the new.
Although things are changing
And soon I will be gone from home
I must not forget
No matter where I roam.
I was born into a family
I was first a daughter
I must never forget
To love and honor my mother and father.
I have forget too often
I often seem like I don’t care
That I do not desire to honor
Please hear my heart, let me share.
This is not my desire
I truly want to show
That I am so very thankful
And no matter where I go;
I want to strive to honor
Even though we may be worlds apart
I will always be a daughter
You will always be in my heart.
I will remember what you have said
Even though sometimes you think I don’t hear
I really am listening
Your words will remain near.
I often feel like I have failed
To let you know how thankful I am
So If I do not tell you enough
Thank you again.
I will always remember
I hope you always see
That even though a wife I am becoming
Your daughter I will always be.
