Wedding Bliss


 This weekend these flags will be uniting two young adults.
America will be  receiving a sweetheart.
And Canada will be embracing a fearless adventurer.
 Many friends and family of Mikki and Joe
will be witnessing the celebration of their vows.

 Here we are, two families who came together this past winter,
blessing them as they begin a new adventure in life.


As your grandmother slipped into this beautiful gown,
you too, will sense that feeling,
 knowing that her labor of love has been woven into this day,
as she hand-sewed the delicate veil that you will be wearing.
Oh, how your grandparents would of loved to see this day.
We've kept your grandmother's dress in the family,
as one that reflects 'commitment and love' for over forty five years.
There legacy lives in our hearts forever.
~~~~~~~~~
There will be days that you will feel agony.
There will be days where you feel pain.
And there will be days where you feel exhilaration
as you reach that mountain top.
You will experience days of  companionship and fun.
You will experience growth in your lives.
Yes, there will be days of personal struggle and introspection.
It is knowing Christ's love that will carry you through these times.
Embracing only each other will lead to isolation and despair.
Surround yourselves with many friends.
You need these friends to love you...
to be honest with you,
to support you,
challenge you in times of joy and times of despair.
When you can experience your friend's embrace,
Christ's love will infuse in your lives.

We will continue to pray that as you become 'SoulMates'
 your marriage will be revolutionized in ways you would never imagine.
