DATE: 11/11/11 TIME 11:11 YEARS 11

Eleven years ago God gave me the greatest woman I could ever ask for on November 11th, at 11:11am.  I am looking forward to the next 111 years!  Here is a poem that Jess wrote  and gave to people on our wedding day.

God’s Perfect... Timing…..Written by Jessica Bislow

The Eleventh Day, of the Eleventh Month,
The Eleventh Hour, the Eleventh Minute,
Is there some significance in it?

The rhyme and reason to this day,
Began because of a burden to pray.
Pray for each other, and in search of God’s plan
Our desire was to be led by the Father’s hand.

Our simple minds at times needed reminding,
Especially as the day was unwinding,
And as ONE, ONE, ONE, ONE appeared on the clock
We thought to ourselves, “Man we see that a lot!”

On our own we began to lift the other in prayer,
And at times we were together, prayer time we shared.
On occasion sound came from just one or the other,
But God honored that time and drew us closer as friends.

We decided we wanted to be friends forever,
To have and to hold, to build and not sever,
The relationship God simply placed in our laps,
We realize that he holds the ultimate road map.

When this day of November entered our conversation,
It brought some excitement and anticipation.
God had it planned to fall on a Saturday,
Our special reminder, we’ll give thanks to him ALWAYS.
