Rhyfeddod Wraig

I’m already laughing about the title of this post. The above photo is one of the few items I have as a keepsake that belonged to my great-grandma. It’s called The Welsh Tea Party. From what I’ve read about this object the Welsh didn’t dress this way. This is just a fancy costume. However, this ties in so nicely to my post. So when this item came to mind I thought, Yes! That’s it! I’ll do the title in Welsh. Mmmhmm, another maneuver to hide my superhero identity. ๐Ÿ˜…

So that’s the story behind the title. Time to crack the code!

My great-grandma and grandpa

Rhyfeddod (Wonder) 

Wraig (Wife)

This “Wonder Wife” doesn’t carry a lasso of truth. She carries a Book of truth! You could also say that she stands firm with the belt of truth around her waist.

If this bothers anyone she’s okay with this. She’ll simply pray for you. No matter whose side you’re on, your name will likely also be written down in her other book. No, it’s a good book. It isn’t a naughty list! ๐Ÿ˜„

“Wonder Wife” works for this poem in two ways. As followers of Christ we become the bride of Christ. (His church) This is a wonderful thing because Jesus takes the best care of His bride. Of course, I’m also a married woman who is still in wonder of all that God is, does, and has created, so it covers those bases as well. I’m sure that all of Jesus’ church will be able to relate to this wonderment.

Wonder Wife

She was always seeking

Searching for His face.

Out of place 

Yet, she knew where she belonged.

And so she longed

To know more

She was stricken to the core.

Moved by words and numbers

His voice like thunder

Her heart filled with wonder.

“I will meditate on Your precepts and fix my eyes on Your ways.” 

Psalm 119:15

“O how I love and treasure the revelation of Your word; throughout the day I fill my heart with its light!”

Psalm 119:97 (TPT)

The voice of the Lord is over the waters; the God of glory thunders, the Lord, over many waters. The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is full of majesty.

Psalm 29:1-11 (ESV)


In the verse above Godโ€™s voice thundering can be compared with Romans 1:20. In this sense Godโ€™s voice is much like a finger print. Godโ€™s glory, His majesty, His invisible qualities can be seen in everything He has created. Much like thunder it’s unavoidable. It speaks very loudly. Scripture tells us that in the beginning God created heaven and earth. His Spirit hovered over the waters. The earth was formless and void until God spoke light into darkness. Then He seperated the light from the darkness and called the light day and the darkness night. Any time we want to recall the story of how things began on earth we can read through the Book of Genesis and be in awe and wonder of all that Jesus has created.

And this is one of Wonder Wife’s favorite songs… it pairs well with one of her favorite verses. ๐Ÿ˜„

  1. Too good for my guesses. Itโ€™s the most perfect super hero name for you and I so love the photographs. Made me smile lots. The book is so much better than the lasso. Iโ€™m 1/8 welsh but sadly that was way beyond my linguistic abilities. I think Wonder Wife has so many exciting adventures awaiting her. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™


  2. Love your poem Tina. And your photos.

    Though I didn’t know what it meant, I knew your title was Welsh. It reminded me of a word I used in my novel, Eisteddfod, an annual arts competition. Also used Calennig, a special decoration for Christmas using an apple or orange studded with cloves and placed on a tripod of twigs with a sprig of box, and evergreen shrub, inserted in the top. Sometimes it was wrapped with gold foil, sometimes they added raisins on the little branch. There is my limit of Welsh. Now you have added one more expression. I have no idea how to pronounce any of them, though. I should Google it to hear it sometime.
