I wrote this poem last year (and have tweaked it several times since) in an attempt to express the meaning behind our name. It is also how I feel about my husband and my first attempt at a "serious" poem. I'm not always so great at expressing verbally expressing myself- I usually have to write it down. So here ya go...
Two Woven Hearts
When you took my hand
I gave you my heart,
And you gave me yours in return.
Loose strands that never
Seemed to fit quite right
Were now tied securely in yours.
I felt complete,
You held me tight
And what could I ask for more?
How peaceful the feeling to be with you.
Just Two Woven Hearts.
As time went on our strings grew worn
Tiny ends began to fray,
So we looked above for something more
And found His heart to bind ours strong and sure.
For you and I alone are not enough,
No matter what they may say.
To last forever we needed a third;
A perfect heart to draw us tighter
As Two Woven Hearts.
With our hearts bound stronger
We now had more love
To nurture new little hearts.
These young ones were tender
Their pieces unsure.
They would need our solid guide.
Our woven strings to hold up theirs
As together we laughed and cried.
More joy was ours than we could have imagined,
The tighter all our hearts drew near.
For you and me and God above,
With our children will always be more
Than Two Woven Hearts.
The poem would make a great wedding/anniversary gift on wood or glass or whatever....and could include the couple's names. As always, we can customize and do exactly what you want!
So this website has been up for several months now, so I figure it's time to start the "blog" thing and introduce ourselves.
My husband (Caleb) and I (Erin) live in Mirabile, Missouri with our 3 (and a 1/4) kids. Caleb works as a electrician and I stay at home (sometimes) with the kids.
We both come from large families: Caleb is one of 11 and I am the oldest of 10.
Both of our parents (Wayne and Cindy Galbraith and Ben and Mindy Simpson) live near-by and we decided it would be fun to start a business with them (as in-with BOTH sets of parents). Family is super important to all of us and we know the in's and out's of family relationships WELL. So along with Caleb's grandpa we all formed Woven Hearts with the intention of creating products that would uplift and bless other families.
Laser Engraving seemed the perfect way to do this and it is SO MUCH FUN to do! We love creating beautiful and lasting engraved products to celebrate the ups (and downs) of family relationships.
We also hope to use this blog to share ideas for ways to improve and strengthen our relationships with our spouses, parents, children, siblings, friends, etc...Feel free to submit articles, stories, and ideas to be included in the blog. These may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
Strives to celebrates the every-day special moments. Seeks new adventures...
