Vows

“In sight of God whom I adore
My family whom I love
And my friends whom I cherish
I promise to you my love
Not to be taken, but to be shared
Not to be consumed, but to be replenished
I promise to feed this love with understanding
Shape it with sincerity
And tender it with patience
So that it may
Live and grow”

Love found and “forevers” exchanged
Promises made and hopes shared
Friends cheered and parents wept
Two “me’s” gave birth to one “us”
Two bodies became one flesh
Two roads became one journey
As everyday words were transformed into holy vows

Along the way hearts were wounded and healed again
Hopes were dashed and hoped anew
Laughter drowned by tears was revived by joy
What once was broken was made whole
What once was lost became found
Bitter failure turned into sweet victory
Loveless incrimination into merciful forgiveness

Selfish demands yielded to generous sacrifice
Open rebellion gave way to sweet surrender
Angry voices were drowned out by encouraging words
Covetousness evaporated in the light of fulfillment
Disloyalty cleansed by the salve of faithfulness
Dead dreams became the seeds for fulfilled wishes
As the promise forgotten was remembered again

“In sight of God whom I adore, my family whom I love,
And my friends whom I cherish; I promise to you my love…”

Two warring hearts made one again by honoring holy vows
One faltering union transformed by submitting to Holy Love
