Post Your Wedding Vows
Posted 01 June 2008 - 10:53 AM
Ours are below:
I promise to seek truth when tempted by lies
To stay present when I want to turn away
To choose compassion when anger feels easier
To embrace your needs and care about them like my own
To give and receive comfort during hard times
To share my heart with those you love
To make your family people that I care about because you do
To nuture you with honesty, joy and passion
To grow with you
To be a witness to your life and invite you to be a witness to mine
adapted from the book Lies at The Altar by Dr. Robin Smith
WEDDING POEM & PRAYER Too
Love, Joy, Understanding, Friendship, Courage...
In joining your lives may God grant you both...
Love... to afford each other a special quality of time together.
Joy...in the accomplishments of one another.
Understanding...that your interests and desires
will not always be the same.
Friendship...based on mutual trust.
Courage...to speak of a misunderstanding
and to work on a solution
before the setting of the sun.
Compassion...to comfort each other in pain and sorrow.
Foresight...to realize rainbows follow rainy days.
Imagination...to keep with you part of the child you used to be.
Mirth...from your sense of humor.
Awareness...to live each day with the knowledge
that there is no promise of tomorrow.
May God bless you and keep you
in the Palm of His hand.
And I Have You
Rain has drops
Sun has shine
Moon has beams
That make you mine
Rivers have banks
Sands for shores
Hearts have heartbeats
That make me yours
Needles have eyes
Though pins may prick
Elmer has glue
To make things stick
Winter has Spring
Pepper has mint
To make it sweet
Teachers have lessons
Soup du jour
Lawyers sue bad folks
All and all
This much is true
You have me
And I have you
