Lord, be in this marriage
in a special way,
May we feel Your presence
each and every day.

Grant us both good humor
to surpass our coming years,
May there always be much laughter,
may there always be less tears.

Give us strength and courage
to follow in Your will,
To trust You in the valley
as we do upon the hill.

Give us both the eyes of love
so we'll always see
The goodness in each other,
secure us, Lord, in Thee.

Give us words of kindness, Lord,
help us both to live
So our lips are ever quick
in saying, "I forgive."

Give us hearts that beat as one,
bind us ever near,
May our love grow deeper, Lord,
with each passing year.

Jesus, bless this marriage,
keep our love brand new,
May we love each other, Lord,
the same way that You do.

~ Connie ~

"What therefore God
hath joined together,
let not man put asunder."

O, my, what an absolutely beautiful wedding poem!
Love, dedication, commitment under God's umbrella.

Jodi and I have been married 55 years, now. And one of our rituals is "gossiping" with each other at bedtime. And praying together.

Connie, this is one of the loveliest, most heartfelt poems I have read in a long, long time.

I totally agree with Juli and Wendi and ET Waldron (below) and with the other reviewers.

This is powerful stuff, Connie!
A truly great write.

Love and God's blessing to you,

I have to say it again, "I love your work!"
I want to send this to someone dear to me, a young wife. We just spoke tonight about the need for her to forgive, forget the past and love her husband. Thanks.
