“Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Unless the Lord guards the city, the guard keeps watch in vain.” Psalm 127:1
My late wife, Judy, did a cross stitch with the first half of this verse on it. She did it many years ago, and even after several moves and my remarriage it still found a place on my walls.
When Judy and I were first married, we had many of the same challenges that young couples have, with a few more thrown in. We felt that we had to include the Lord God in our marriage as much as possible in order to make it. Having this verse on our walls helped keep the Lord God always before us. We were fortunate and blessed to be married for twenty-eight years when she passed away. Vernon T.
