Back in February 1989, I wanted to do a different kind of Valentine for Bob, Melissa and Shawn. I wrote the words, my sister-in-law, Carol, did the calligraphy, for each plaque.
Bob’s plaque had been packed away, until this past summer. I did not pack it correctly. Maybe I will be able to fix it.
Melissa’s plaque has survived a few moves.
Shawn’s plaque survived the fire. A little smoke and a couple of darkened areas.
I had chosen the scriptures, for the 3 plaques, before I did the composings, but I have no idea why, back then, I chose what I did—???
Genesis 22:1-12. Verse 12.”And He said”Do not lay your hand on the lad, or do anything to him, for now I know that you fear God, since you have not withheld your son, your only son,from Me.”
Isaiah 40:31: “But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.”
Here is my read of Shawn’s plaque.
