They Say... and other readings

Art Of A Good Marriage:

A good marriage must be created.
In the 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 a day.
It is never going to sleep angry.
It is having a mutual sense of values and common objectives.
It is standing together and facing the world.
It is forming a circle of love that gathers in the whole family.
It is having the capacity to forgive and forget.
It is giving each other an atmosphere in which each can grow.
It is a common search for the good and the beautiful.
It is only marrying the right person.
It is being the right partner.


 Treat With Respect:

Treat yourselves and each other with respect,
And remind yourselves often of what brought you together. 
Give the highest priority to the tenderness,
Gentleness and kindness that your connection deserves.
When frustration, difficult and fear assail your relationship.
As they threaten all relationships at one time or another.
Remember to focus on what is right between you, not only the part which seems wrong.
In this way, you can ride out the storms when clouds hide the face of the sun in your lives. 
Remembering that even if you lose sight of it for a moment, the sun is still there.
And if each of you takes responsibility for the quality of your life together,
It will be marked by abundance and delight.


On Your Wedding Day

Today is a day you will always remember 
The greatest in anyone's life 
You'll start off the day just two people in love 
And end it as Husband and Wife

It's a brand new beginning the start of a journey 
With moments to cherish and treasure 
And although there'll be times when you both disagree 
These will surely be outweighed by pleasure

You'll have heard many words of advice in the past 
When the secrets of marriage were spoken 
But you know that the answers lie hidden inside
Where the bond of true love lies unbroken

So live happy forever as lovers and friends 
It's the dawn of a new life for you
As you stand there together with love in your eyes 
From the moment you whisper 'I do' 

And with luck, all your hopes, and your dreams can be real 
May success find it's way to your hearts 
Tomorrow can bring you the greatest of joys 
But today is the day it all starts.
 

I dreamed of a wedding of elaborate elegance...A church filled with family and friends.
I asked him what kind of a wedding he wished for.
He said one that would make me his wife.” 
 
"We come to love not by finding a perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly.
 
"The grass is always greener…. 
when it’s watered."
 
Motto for the bride and groom:
We are a work in progress with a lifetime contract.
