"You have known each other from the first glance of acquaintance to this point of commitment. At some point, you decided to marry. From that moment of yes to this moment of yes, indeed, you have been making promises and agreements in an informal way. All those conversations that were held riding in a car or over a meal or during long walks - all those sentences that began with “When we’re married” and continued with “I will and you will and we will”- those late night talks that included “someday” and “somehow” and “maybe”- and all those promises that are unspoken matters of the heart. All these common things, and more, are the real process of a wedding. The symbolic vows that you are about to make are a way of saying to one another, “ You know all those things we’ve promised and hoped and dreamed- well, I meant it all, every word.” Look at one another and remember this moment in time. Before this moment you have been many things to one another- acquaintance, friend, companion, lover, dancing partner, and even teacher, for you have learned much from one another in these last few years. Now you shall say a few words that take you across a threshold of life, and things will never quite be the same between you. For after these vows, you shall say to the world, this- is my husband, this- is my wife "
“Marriage is a commitment to life, to the best that two people can find and bring out in each other. It offers opportunities for sharing and growth that no other human relationship can equal; a joining that is promised for a lifetime. Within the circle of its love, marriage encompasses all of life’s most important relationships. A wife and a husband are each other’s best friend, confidant, lover, teacher, listener, and critic. Marriage deepens and enriches every facet of life. Happiness is fuller; memories are fresher; commitment is stronger; even anger is felt more strongly, and passes away more quickly. Marriage understands and forgives the mistakes life is unable to avoid. It encourages and nurtures new life, new experiences, and new ways of expressing love through the seasons of life. When two people pledge to love and care for each other in marriage, they create a spirit unique to themselves, which binds them closer than any spoken or written words. Marriage is a promise, a potential, made in the hearts of two people who love, which takes a lifetime to fulfill.”Ephesians 5:25 -5:28-31 The Hands Ceremony I would like for Jim's mom to read (turn to each other and clasp hands) These are the hands of your best friend, young and strong and full of love for you, that are holding yours on your wedding day as you promise to love each other today, tomorrow, and forever. These are the hands that will work along side yours as together you build your future. These are the hands that will passionately love you and cherish you through the years, and with the slightest touch will comfort you like no other. These are the hands that will hold you when fear or grief temporarily comes your way. These are the hands that will countless times wipe the tears from your eyes, tears of sorrow and tears of joy. These are the hands that will tenderly hold your children. These are the hands that will give you support and encouragement to chase down your dreams. These are the hands that will hold you tight as you struggle through difficult times. These are the hands that will give you strength when you need it. These are the hands that will lift your chin and brush your cheek as they raise your face to look into eyes that are filled with overwhelming love for you. And lastly, these are the hands that even when wrinkled and aged will still be reaching for yours, still giving you the same unspoken tenderness with just a touch. Together as a team, everything you wish for can be realized. God, bless these hands that you see before you this day. May they always be held by one another.

resulting discomfort. So make sure that you choose the right fabric for her.

It's Our Time Artist: Marty Casey Album: single Description Not Provided Lyrics It's Our Time
Tonight were gonna break the chains
Wash away our yesterday
Tonight were gonna ride the storm
To find what we been waiting for
Just let go
All our dreams will awake
The world we know
It's Our time
It's Our time
The stars have aligned and
The future Is shinning so bright
Tonight I'm giving all I can
Flying high like superman
To knowing when it just feels right
I wanna be with you tonight
All your tears
I will wash em away
Leave your fears
Far behind Video

I love the look of these floral wrist corsages. No more of the old, stodgy looking corsages. Let’s give moms and grandmothers a floral design with a touch of style! For this DIY project, floral adhesive will be your BFF!
You will need: Peonies, Ranunculus, Jasmine Vine, Scissors, Pearl Wristlet Bracelet, Floral Adhesive
Apply a dab of floral adhesive to the center of the bracelet
Use the bigger bloom for the center of the wristlet. First cut the stem off of
the bloom so it will lay flat, then glue it to the center. Remember to hold the blooms to the adhesive for ten seconds after applying.
Leaving a little stem on the small blooms, glue them to the sides of the bigger bloom
Glue in the jasmine vine or whatever greenery you decide to use, and you are done- a perfect adornment for the mothers of the bride and groom!
