7: I promise to love you in good times and in bad, when life seems easy and when it seems hard, when our love is simple, and when it is an effort. I promise to encourage and support you, to share and laugh with you. I will respect our differences, and do my part to work through our challenges. I promise to be faithful and at your side each and every day Now and forever.
8: For You Both Scattered from hands of love like bread for wild birds, Flung like rainbows of confetti from hands of joy, Released like drops of warm and living rain, We shower you with blessings. May companionship sustain you, Love be your walking guide, Joy be the bricks that build your house, Laughter the cement that makes you strong, Compassion the roof that shelters you in its strong and caring arms. May the path you walk together be the quiet path of harmony. May friends and children gather at your table. May life be long and, at its human end, May the gaze that falls each upon the other Be still alive with love And twinkle yet with laughter, health, gladness, and love always. Heather and Ryan, With hearts filled with joy we celebrate Your wedding day.
9: Blessing of the Hands These are the hands of your best friend, young and strong and full of love for you, that are holding yours on your wedding day, as you promise to love each other today, tomorrow, and forever. These are the hands that will work alongside yours, as together you build your future . These are the hands that will passionately love you and cherish you through the years, and with the slightest touch, will comfort you like no other. These are the hands that will hold you when fear or grief fills your mind. These are the hands that will countless times wipe the tears from your eyes; tears of sorrow, and tears of joy. These are the hands that will tenderly hold your children. These are the hands that will help you to hold your family as one. These are the hands that will give you strength when you need it. And lastly, these are the hands that even when wrinkled and aged, will still be reaching for yours, still giving you the same unspoken tenderness with just a touch.
