21: “The most wonderful of all things in life, I believe, is the discovery of another human being with whom one's relationship has a growing depth, beauty, and joy as the years increase. This inner progressiveness of love between two human beings is a most marvelous thing; it cannot be found by looking for it or by passionately wishing for it. It is a sort of divine accident, and the most wonderful of all things in life.”
22: On your Wedding Day 48 years ago you exchanged rings as a symbol of the never-ending circle of love. Rings serve as a reminder of your wedding vows to each other, and your commitment to live in unity, love and happiness. At this time, it is appropriate to reconfirm the meaning of the rings you wear. Please join your left hands together so that Charles hand is on top. Charles please repeat after me: Darlene I wear this ring you placed on my hand, as a symbol of my love and commitment to you. Now, with Darlene's hand on top, Darlene please repeat after me: Charles, I wear this ring you placed on my hand, as a symbol of my love and commitment to you. I ask that you each remember to continue to cherish each other as special and unique individuals and that you each respect the thoughts and ideas of one another. And most of all, be able to forgive each other, and not hold grudges against one another. Live each day in love with each other, always being there to give love, comfort, and refuge to each other, in good times and bad. Charles and Darlene, today you have renewed the promises and vows that you made to each other on your wedding day. You have symbolized the renewal of the marriage union by the joining of hands, the taking of vows, and by wearing of your wedding rings.It is with pleasure that I conclude the ceremony of renewing your vows of marriage that joined you and binds you as husband and wife. Please celebrate this renewal of vows with a kiss!
23: There is no feeling more comforting and consoling than knowing you are right next to the one you love.
25: It doesn't matter where you go in life, what you do ..... it's who you have beside you.
