An angel came to me today with a message
Holding a perfect triangle in His hand
He asked me if I knew why he carried it
I laughed at him thinking such a crazy man

He placed it down on a piece of paper
Beginning to trace all of its shared lines
As the image together became complete
He then asked me to open up my mind

He explained how its adjoining three points
All share equally the same space in between
He went on to ask me this single question
If I truly understood what it really means

He went on to say how it truly displays
In such a very special and wholesome way
A wonderful side of pure spiritual wisdom
Which many alive fail to embrace each day

The top point of the triangle sit’s our God
With His glory, grace, forgiveness, and love
But the two lines which went away from Him
Are to the two creations He was most proud of

The third line reflects Gods strong foundation
A shelter when needing guidance the two can be
But here in the triangle, they would be connected
Reflecting how the relationship will be for three

If as a man you turn your head away from God
You cannot hide from him anything you might do
As you are connected to both God and your wife
He will see and feel all you might plan to do

It is the same for the wife as with her husband
If she ever for some reason chooses to turn away
God will see the paths which she also might take
And nothing would be hidden from Him in any way

The point of the message which he shared with me
Was to help us understand where our hearts should stay
He said look at the connecting lines in your life
Sharing and depending will bless your lives each day

For God will love and embrace you both all the time
With His blossoming love in so many beautiful ways
And His blessings will always nourish your lives daily
When in this threefold embrace of love you both stay.

Never mistreat each other a single day in your lives
Treat and love the other as you would love yourself
And when God looks daily upon your steps each day
Your hearts will never in his eyes leave any doubt.

(I was moved to write this poem June 1, 1977, one day
after proposing to my wife to be, after only knowing
her six weeks… and 23 days before we married on June
24th. I had received orders to transfer to another base,
and the spirit shared with me she was the one I would
share my life with.)
