Dear fiancé, I will always love you. I will honor you and cherish you until death separates us.

Eternity holds us in His arms as we exchange our vows on this incredible day.

Stoop to gather me up in your arms and carry me over the threshold, your tender arms gently yet strongly holding me close.

Intimacy seems to grow each moment as we gaze into each other’s eyes and sigh in the delight and joy of becoming one,

Reflecting on how much we know each other and on when we shall be fully known.

Everlasting is my desire for you - it is as sure as my heart which beats for you, for us.
--------------------------------------------------------
Dearest husband, I will always try to choose to love you. I will daily try to honor you and cherish you until death and new life seek us.

Eternity still holds us in His arms as we struggle to live out our vows in the incredible gift of each day together and as we lean on Him for the strength we need.

Stoop to shelter me in your arms and hold on as tightly as you have in the storms we have ridden out together, even in the hurricanes you caused and through the tornados I created, your tender arms gently yet strongly holding me close.

Intimacy grows each day, each year as we gaze into each other’s eyes; sometimes distant, sometimes sighing at our immaturity, delighting in our growing wisdom and love,

Reflecting on how much we know each other and knowing that we can never assume to know each other fully.

Everlasting is my desire for you - it is as sure as my heart which beats for you, for us. The Lord has blessed me indeed.
------------------------------------------------------------
Dearest children, even in the days when I was deciding who you would be I loved you. I always have and always will cherish you as my own. Welcome to

Eternity and My outstretched arms. I am overjoyed to finally hold you forever. Oh how I longed to

Stoop down and take you here even then when you each cried out, “Abba Father”, and now I can gather you tenderly in My arms, enjoying the

Intimacy with you as I gaze into your eyes and sigh in the delight and joy of finally having you here with me.

Reflecting on the day in which you began to know me and knowing that now you shall know me as fully as I have always known you, my joy is complete. My one desire has always been that you would have life

Everlasting and spend it with me. My heart beats for both of you, for us. The gift of each other that I gave you on earth cannot even begin to compare with what I have to give you now. Come; enter into the joy of your master.

I absolutely love acrostics! Yours is magnificent; I desire, to one day, be half as good. My favorite link of words: even in the hurricanes you caused and through the tornados I created…-- What a powerful and realistic line. The subtly and continuity to this piece, highlights well the quality your pen produces. My humble respect, Nancy
