BC: And our journey begins...

1: "The Art Of Marriage" The little things are the big things. It is never being too old to hold hands. It is remembering to say "I love you" at least once a day. It is never going to sleep angry It is at no time taking the other for granted; the courtship should not end with the honeymoon. It should continue through all the years. It is having a mutual sense of values and common objectives. It is standing together facing the world. It is forming a circle of love that gathers in the whole family. It is doing things for each other, not in the attitude of duty or sacrifice, but in the spirit of joy. It is speaking words of appreciation and demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways. It is not expecting the husband to wear a halo or the wife to have wings of an angel. It is not looking for perfection in each other. It is cultivating flexibility, patience, understanding and a sense of humor. It is having the capacity to forgive and forget. It is giving each other an atmosphere in which each can grow. It is finding room for the things of the spirit. It is a common search for the good and the beautiful. It is establishing a relationship in which the independence is equal, dependence is mutual and the obligation is reciprocal. It is not only marrying the right partner, it is being the right partner. -Wilferd A. Peterson

39: Bless our marriage, O God, as we begin our journey down the road of life together. We don't know what lies ahead, for the road has many curves and bends. But help us to make the best of whatever comes our way. Help us to realize that nothing nor no one is perfect and to look for the good in all things and all people including ourselves. Help us to respect each other's likes and dislikes, opinions and beliefs, hopes and dreams and fears. Help us to always learn from each other and to help each other grow mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Amen.
