This was the song over my head today. I just kept hearing the high lighted lines over and over then I found the music and played the song.

It was written about a frontier woman who came to help establish the west.

Beloved used to sing it to me 20+ years ago when he would play his guitar after work.

I heard a love song all day and when he came home a warm meal greeted him with this song playing in the background we danced in the clean kitchen.



Mail Order Annie

By Harry Chapin

At first I did not think it could be you, but you’re the only one that got off the train.

So you must be my wife miss Annie Holsey, yes…yes.

I guess I am your husband,

Hello I am Harry Crain.

Mail order Annie, never mind you’re crying

Your tears are sweet rain in my empty life

Mail Order Annie can’t you see I m trying to tell you that I am glad your here

You are the woman who’s come to be my wife.

You know you’re not as pretty as I dreamed you’d be, but then I’m not no handsome fancy Dan.

And out here looks are not so important no; no its what a woman is when she’s up against the land

Mail Order Annie never mind you’re crying

Your tears are sweet rain in my empty life

Mail Order Annie cant you see I’m trying to tell you that I’m glad you’re here.

You are the woman who has come to be my wife.

You know it is no easy life you’re entering. The winter wind comes whistling threw the cracks there in the sawed and you’ll never have to many neighbors there’s you

Girl and thee me and there is God

I am just a dirt man from the North Dakota Plains,

And you one girl form the city who has been thrown out on her own.

And I’m standing here not knowing what to say to you.

Except Annie lets you and me go home

Mail Annie never mind your crying your tears are sweet rain in my empty life

Mail Order Annie cant you see I’m trying to tell you that I’m glad you’re here

You are the woman who has come to be my wife.


Often over the years I have felt bad that My Beloved husband had to have such a hard road to walk along with me through this journey.

Be it known however that

my tears are sweet rain in his empty life

He carries my sorrows as does the Lord.

That my friends is Love. To love your wife as Christ loved.

I thought of something you know we are the Bride of Christ.

Such a sweet post. Bless you for sharing.

Older women likewise teach the younger women...

• how to love their husbands
• how to love their children
• how to be self-controlled
• how to be pure
• how to be keepers at home
• how to be kind and submissive (not subservient) to their own husbands. (See Titus 2:3-5)

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • "HOME IS WHERE YOUR STORY BEGINS"
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"

Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
"For the LORD your God has arrived to live among you. He is a mighty savior. He will rejoice over you with great gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will exult over you by singing a happy song."
