    The Art of Marriage

    The Art of Marriage, by Wilfred Peterson
    A good marriage must be created. In the art of marriage the little things are the big things...

    It is never being too old to hold hands.
    It is remembering to say, "I love you" at least once each day.
    It is never going to sleep angry.
    It is having a mutual sense of values and common objectives.
    It is standing together facing the world.
    It is forming a circle of love that gathers in the whole family.
    It is speaking words of appreciation and demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways.
    It is having the capacity to forgive and forget.
    It is in giving each other an atmosphere in which each can grow.
    It is finding room for the things of the spirit.
    It is a common search for the good and the beautiful.
    It is not only marrying the right partner, it is being the right partner.

              How beautiful! It really ties in with our ceremony.

              I think I might have to steal it to use in our programs! Thanks for sharing!

                    My cousin read this during our ceremony. She bawled the whole time. It was a really sweet moment though.
