As you pledge your love

Dear Caitlin and Athan

This is the day that the Lord has made for you. It’s a day of gladness, of rejoicing in new things.

Look… the sky is radiant with abundant sunshine.

Listen… the mountains and hills have burst into song, and all the trees of the field are clapping their hands.

There is much joy among all of God’s creation, because today we celebrate the culmination of your love story – the story of two people who found the one whom their soul loves.

It’s a story authored by God, with you, his children, as the main characters. After he planted the seed of friendship between you he began to water it with fun, laughter and just the right amount of romance. Then he stood back and watched it blossom into pure, unconditional and eternal love, which can never be quenched.

Today, as you become one in God’s sight, this is my prayer for you: that he keep you from all harm as he watches over your life together, both now and forever more. That your love for each other may abound more and more as you strive to draw ever closer to him. As Christ rules your hearts, make him the centre of your home so that it may be filled with joy and peace.

Treat one another with kindness, patience and gentle forgiveness. Love generously, with faithful admiration and quiet humility. Pray with each other and for each other.

Embark on a new adventure every day. Delight in the happy moments, grow in wisdom during times of trial. Be content. Continue to walk in love.

May the God of love and peace be with you. May he make your love increase and overflow so that together you may give glory with one heart to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Lots of love,

Mom
