Sealed With a Kiss


(Inspired by Genesis Women)

These stories of women
From so long ago
Mothers of kingdoms
Lessons to know
Eve was deceived
Sin entered the land
Yet the promise was spoken
Redeemed once again
Sarah though empty
A son by God’s hand
And now Rebekah
Mothered two nations
Two sons and one blessing
A difficult relation
As I ponder their faith
And think of my now
I am moved by the wonder
And the depth of a vow
The promise from God
Spoken deep in my heart
I know that my story
Is broken in parts
But the beautiful mystery
Of love and desire
Sprinkled with blessing
And purpose much higher
Of life giving love
In my role as a wife
I am honored to call
My husband for life
What God joined together
And sealed with a kiss
Let nothing and no one
Destroy what is His.
