Ring Exchange Statement
With this ring I thee wed and with it I bestow upon thee all the treasure of my mind, of my heart, of my hands.
I Corinthians - Chapter 13
"Love is patient ... Love is kind. Love is not jealous
or boastful. It is not arrogant or rude. Love does
not insist upon its own way. It is not irritable and
keeps no records of wrongs. Love does not rejoice
in mistakes made, but in being real and true. If you
love someone, you will be loyal to him (or her) no
matter what the cost. Love exercises faith in every-
thing. Love keeps up hope in all things. Loves gives
power to endure in anything. Love never gives up."
This Is Friendship
"I love you, not only for what you are, but for what
I am when I am with you. I love you, not only for
what you have made of yourself, but for what you
are making of me. I love you for the good qualities
in me that you bring out. I love you for putting your
hand into my heaped-up heart and passing over all
the frivolous and weak things that you cannot help
seeing there, and for drawing out into the light all
the beautiful radiant things that no one else has
looked quite far enough to find. I love you for ignoring
the possibilities of the fool in me and for laying firm
hold of the possibilities of good in me. I love you for
closing your eyes to the discords in me and for adding
to the music in me by worshipful listening ... for this
Blessing for a Marriage
"May your marriage bring you all the exquisite
excitements of a marriage should bring. And may
you succeed in all important ways with one another.
May you look for things to praise, often say "I love
you!" and take not notice of small faults.
If you have quarrels that push you apart, may both
of you hope to have good sense enough to take the
first step back.
May you enter into mystery, which is the awareness
of one another's presence -- no more physical than
spiritual, warm and near when you are side by side,
warm and near when you are in separate rooms or
even distant cities. May you have happiness, and
may you find it making one another happy. May you
have love, and may you find it loving one another!"
The Prophet: "On Marriage"
"You were born together, and together you shall be
forevermore. You shall be together when the white
wings of death scatter your days. Aye, you shall be
together even in the silent memory of God. But let
there be spaces in your togetherness and let the
winds of the heavens dance between you.
Love one another, but make not a bond of love; let
it rather be a moving sea between the shore of your
souls. Fill each other's cup but drink not from one
cup. Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let
each one of you be alone, even as the strings of a
lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.
And give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping.
For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.
And stand together, yet not to near together; for
the pillars of the temple stand apart, and the oak tree
and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow."
