Wedding Prayer

20130421-130817.jpgFew moments in life compare to the joy of witnessing two truly happy people marry.

Longtime friendship fueled affection, and today, surrounded and supported by love, a young man and woman wed by the sea, underneath the interlinked branches of hundred-year-old oak trees.

I read Robert Lewis Stevenson’s Wedding Prayer, giving thanks for blessings and uniting hearts present with those far away.  Like the massive oaks overhead that shaded us, may this union provide them shelter and strength.  May their love grow and weave deep roots, providing stability and nourishment for generations to come.
