Wedding Vows

1288141_f520“The path that I have walked alone, I now share with you.  I want to travel this path together with you.  I hope that we will walk together always, side by side.

If I see you running ahead of me, please allow me to catch up with you.  I will see your extended hand and accept it.  If you should stumble, please allow me to be with you and lift you back up again.
If I see the road dividing up ahead, let us together draw a map so we may continue on the same path.
If fallen trees of strayed rocks pause us to stop awhile, let us wait together in patience and in hope.

My life with you may not be easier but, for me, it will be clearer.  At times, we may disagree with each other but I promise to always listen, as best I can.  Our days and attitudes may not always in be sync but I promise to carry you through those down times and I hope you will carry me through mine.

In the presence of God this day, and in the company of those important to me (both living and deceased), I pledge my devotion and love to you.  I promise to walk this journey of life with you for the rest of my life.”
