How many wives of Masonshave ever given much thought, To the wonderful biblical lessons that Masonry has taught?Have you asked yourself this question, when you sat alone at night, While hubwas away at Lodge: “is my reasoning straight and right?” I know the nights are lonely and long, but this thought occurred to me, “If my husband weren’t a Mason,what kind of man would he be?”
They call us Masonic Widows; I’ve been one for many a year. I’ve spoken my piece on lonely nightsand berated my hubdear. But then again I regret my words,and with wisdom try to see, “If my husband weren’t a Mason, what kind of man would he be?”
I know nothing of their secret work, but this much I understand. That the lessons taught in Masonry have made him a better man. So, ask yourself this question, which has always come to me, “If my husband weren’t a Mason, what kind of man would he be?”
So I try to be a patient wife, as alone I meditate, And see his point, as he leaves for Lodge,with these words, “I won’t be late!” Some say that men make Masonry, and this I understand,But, deep in my heart I still maintain,“that Masonry makes the Man.” As we journey life’s highway together, to the inner dreams of life, May he be a Mason forever.
Sincerely, ‘A Mason’s Wife’.
