One song, a hymn called Hosea, sung at our kitchen table then posted on this secret page so you can hear my husband‘s gift to me too…

Hosea

Come back to me with all your heart.
Don’t let fear keep us apart.
Trees do bend, though straight and tall
so must we, to others’ call.

Long have I waited for your coming
home to me and living, deeply our new lives.

The wilderness will lead you
to your heart where I will speak.
Integrity and justice,
With tenderness, you shall know.

Long have I waited for your coming
home to me and living, deeply our new lives.

You shall sleep secure with peace;
faithfulness will be your joy.
Long have I waited for your coming
home to me and living, deeply our new lives.
