Prairie & Andris - Page Text Content



1: To Prairie: Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead. The consciousness of loving and being loved brings a warmth and a richness to life that nothing else can bring. -Oscar Wilde With Love, Your friends & family

2: My darlin girl, Heres to you. All my life you have brought me such joy and love, and now I know that yours has opened to share your love and life with Andris. This fills my heart with happiness! “Sometimes life is too hard to be alone, and Sometimes life is too good to be alone Congratulations on this marvelous day and all you have created. I love you, my life, my heart!

3: Dear Prairie, I am delighted that Andris has found someone as intelligent and beautiful as you as a companion in life. I've never seen him more happy and excited than when he talks about marrying you. May the two of you always be as happy and in love as on your wedding day! Love, Aija

5: I want to share a non-traditional blessing to help the most positive and socially conscious couple I know to stay that way through many, many future years together. I love you both, Anneke “For troubles that shape and sharpen our patience, for doubts that let faith moments shine, for confusions that keep our life from being rigid, for sufferings that help us share another’s grief, for fears that mark real terror in the world, for pains that open our eyes to joy, for sorrows that join our hands to hope, for loneliness that leads us to the heart of God for all these gifts by which we have become more human, we give thanks.” -Nick Thacher (adapted from a church service in Montreat, North Carolina)

6: Love is a canvas furnished by nature and embroidered by imagination. -Voltaire

7: May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face; the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand. -An Irish blessing Love, Lilya

9: All over the world We searched to find home Diamonds in a handful of dust A speck of sunlight came like the fog pouring Over the hills, slipping finger by finger Into the valleys When you clasp hands and repeat your vows Everyone who has done so before you Stands and applauds The angels in heaven and the stars above Singing OH Yeah OH Yeah OH Yeah Let there be love. Jeanne Sirotkin for Prairie and Andris

11: Those who know Prairie and Andris always marvel at how much energy and ambition they have to explore and do good to the world beyond the United States. I've lived in two countries other than the U.S., and I've traveled to another twenty, and I have never met two people so dedicated to understanding our world and helping others in it. They are truly global souls, and could only spend their globetrotting, world-saving days with a partner just as adventurous and committed to making the world better for both people they've never met, as well as their friends and family blessed to be so. Congratulations to Prairie and Andris for finding a rare love that amplifies who they are, and that brings them some of the peace they tirelessly build for others. -Justin & Natalie

12: We are, each of us angels with only one wing; and we can only fly by embracing one another. -Luciano de Crescenzo

13: Again and again, however we know the landscape of love and the little churchyard there, with its sorrowing names, and the frighteningly silent abyss into which the others fall: again and again the two of us walk out together under the ancient trees, lie down again and again among the flowers, face to face with the sky. -Rilke

14: Mabrouk Habibti -Juliette

15: Someday, when we have been together for a very long time, we'll turn the lights out and slow-dance on the porch in our bathrobes. I'll write you love notes in large print and tape them to the fridge. You'll finish my stories and I'll borrow your glasses. We'll wonder where the time went. And each night, we'll roll to the middle of our old bed, into one another's arms, where we'll kiss and touch and dream the secret dreams that only old lovers know.

17: A Moment of Happiness A moment of happiness, you and I sitting on the verandah, apparently two, but one in soul, you and I. We feel the flowing water of life here, you and I, with the garden's beauty and the birds singing. The stars will be watching us, and we will show them what it is to be a thin crescent moon. You and I unselfed, will be together, indifferent to idle speculation, you and I. The parrots of heaven will be cracking sugar as we laugh together, you and I. In one form upon this earth, and in another form in a timeless sweet land. -Rumi From: Kim

18: Prairie and Andris, Congratulations! This is just the beginning of an incredible roller coaster ride of marriage. There will definitely be ups and downs (what kind of boring roller coaster just goes straight?) but the ride makes life so much more interesting and full. After three years, the best piece of marital advice I can give is that a cleaning service may be more useful than therapy :). Enjoy each other and I wish you a future filled with love and laughter. Love, Brenda

19: Dear Prairie and Andris, I want to wish you the most amazing and adventures marriages of your life. I know that you will travel the world and make memories everywhere you go. I think the most beautiful aspect of your marriage will be sharing moments and memories with your best friend. I only wish you happiness, joy, love and passion everyday. Prairie you are the sister that I never had, and I want to become closer with you throughout the years. You both mean the world to me!I love you both. Love Always, Valentina

21: Dear Prairie and Andris, To say I am so excited for you is an understatement! I can't think of two more perfectly matched people. Everything about your story is something out of a fairytale and that fact that you can chart the relationship locations the way one charts their cross-continent travels is the icing on the cake. I know you both have the love thing covered, so instead I wish you so much joy, laughter, patience, happiness and travel! I thought this short poem seems to sum the two of you up perfectly. Much love, Heather When the one whose hand you're holding Is the one one who holds your heart When the one whose eyes you gaze into Gives your hopes and dreams their start, When the one you think of first and last Is the one who holds you tight, And the things you plan together Make the whole world seem just right, When the one whom you believe in puts their faith and trust in you, You've found the one and only love You'll share your whole life through

22: “Be quick to listen, Slow to speak, and Slower to anger” James 1:19 Love, Aunt Patti | Prairie Rose, Your name Rose is so important to our family. You are so fortunate to be named after the true matriarch of the Family. How well I remember how Granny would light up when there was a chance she was to see her little Prairie. Distance limited the visits to be less than she wanted but I can tell you, she cherished each moment spent with you. You may not remember these times I do. You were special to Rose. On this Special Day in your Life, Rose will be smiling down at her little Prairie and wishing you a beautiful long life with Andris. You have prepared for this special day and it will be wonderful. You waited for the right person to share your life with and there is so much to experience together. Best wishes for a sunshine filled day. Looking forward to seeing you as a beautiful bride walking down the aisle. Love, Diane Rose

24: Love is the strongest force the world possesses, and yet it is the humblest imaginable. -Mahatma Gandhi

25: Prairie, As you and Andris journey through life together remember to live to your potential. There is a wonderful old Quaker saying: "Let your life speak." Live life with passion, understanding, and joy. Keep an open mind. As you share your life with family- parents, children, and grandchildren do so with the passions others have done with you. While you are at it-- share with friends and others who cross your path. It is often the serendipity of a moment that shapes a memory. Congratulations on your marriage to my cousin Andris. Wishing you much joy and happiness. Love, Alicia M. Bjornson

26: If I know what love is, it is because of you. -Herman Hesse
