That sweet man of mine
May I think the best of him in every circumstance,
May I laugh and sing and make our lives a dance.
May I build him up with the words I say,
May I give him reason to look forward to the day.
May I be quick to look over his mistakes,
And thank him for the efforts that he makes.
May he feel safe and know that I’m his biggest fan,
May I remember he is clay–he’s only just a man.
Let me love him the way I want to be,
Forgiving as Christ has forgiven me.
May I build my home by every word and deed,
And may love flourish from every planted seed.
