16: It's finally time
17: To do the real thing
18: Some mother-in-laws are possessive; Their child they still want to do own. My mother-in law's love it like sunlight; On both of us it shone. Some mother-in-laws put you down; They think you're not good enough. My mother-in-law shows approval, Affection, and other good stuff. Some mother-in-laws interfere; They think that they know best. My mother-in-law lets us be; She's better than the rest. And so I just want to tank you for being who you are; You've made everything so easy; As a mother-in-law, you're a star!
19: A mother is a friend on whom you can depend, she makes you feel you are never alone. She has a very special way of cheering up a day, and looks upon your problems as her own. She shares your every dream and adds to your esteem. She helps you and does favors, big and small. She cares with all her heart, she has loved you from the start, A mother is the dearest friend of all..
20: Daughter I look back in time, young and very innocent Seeing the world through your eyesMemories I hold Safe in my heart. To sometimes unwrap with a smile and the comfort of a sigh, now my little girl is grown, and a woman you have become. With the wisdom and strength God has given, is tranquility we feel knowing that anything you will overcome. This strength and warmth of heart I see in you. I know will lay no boundaries, for the world is yours to have sweetheart, to hold in your hands, each moment to appreciate ans seize. I am there standing in the shadows, allowing you to grow and learn. Holding onto the knowledge that with your heart, you will succeed. It is your strength and kind heart about you that shines. As a single ray of sunlight beaming though a cloud, insisting we look higher and higher, to lift us up when we are down, it is this my daughter in you that I do admire.
21: A Sonnet for My Incomparable Mother I often contemplate my childhood, Mom. I am a mother now, and so I know Hard work is mixed together with the fun; You learned that when you raised me long ago. I think of all the things you gave to me: Sacrifice, devotion, love and tears, Your heart, your mind, your energy and soul All these you spent on me throughout the years. You loved me with a never-failing love You gave me strength and sweet security, And then you did the hardest thing of all: You let me separate and set me free. Every day, I try my best to beA mother like the mom you were to | You Let Me Know You Love Me You let me know you love me In so many different ways. You make me feel important With encouragement and praise. You're always there when I need you To comfort and to care. I know I'm in your thoughts; Your love follows me everywhere. Thank you for all you've done And given so generously. I love you, my wonderful mother; You're a heaven-sent blessing to me.

29: You know our love was meant to be. The kind of love that lasts forever. And I want you here with me, from tonight until the end of time. You should know, everywhere I go, you're always on my mind, in my heart, in my soul, baby. You're the meaning in my life, you're the inspiration. You bring feeling to my life, you're the inspiration. Wanna have you near me, I wanna have you hear me saying', no one needs you more than I need you..
30: Dearly beloved, we are gathered together here in the sight of God, and in the presence of these witnesses, to join together Chris and Nicole in holy matrimony: Which is an honorable estate, instituted of God and signifying unto us the mystical union which exists between Christ and his church: which hold estate Christ adorned and beautified with his presence in Cana of Galilee. It is therefore not to be entered into unadvisedly, but reverently and discreetly, and in the gear of God.
31: I require and charge you both, as you stand in the presence of God, before whom the secrets of all hearts are disclosed, that, having duly considered the hold covenant you are about to make, you do now declare before this company your pledge of love, each to the other.
32: Chris, will you take this woman to be your wedded wife, to live together in the holy estate of matrimony? Will you love her, comfort her, honor and keep her, in sickness and in health: and forsaking all others keep yourself only unto her for as long as you both shall live? | I Nicole, take thee Chris, to be my wedded husband, to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better or worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, until death we part, according to God's holy ordinance, and thereto, I pledge to you my love.
33: In token and pledge, of our constant faith and abiding love, with this ring I thee wed, in the name of the Father, and of the son, and of the holy spirit. Amen.
34: Our Father, who are in Heaven, hallowed be, thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done. On Earth, as it is, in Heaven. Give us this day, our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, Forever, Amen
35: Unity of our lives
36: Not so long ago, this earth was just a field of cold and lonely space, without you. Now everything's alive, now everything's revealed, for the story of my life, is all about you. So if you feel the cool winds blowing through your nights, I will shelter you, I'm forever here to chase your fears away. | Here we stand today, like we always dreamed, starting out our lives together. The light is in your eyes, the love is in our hears. I can't believe you really mine forever. Been rehearsing for this moment all my life, so don't act surprised, if the feeling starts to carry me away.

60: Is this the little girl I carried? Is this the little boy at play? I don't remember growing older when did they? When did she get to be a beauty? When did he grow to be so tall? Wasn't it yesterday when they were so small? | Sunrise, sunset, swiftly flow the days. Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers, blossoming even as we gaze. Sunrise, sunset, swiftly fly the years. One season following another, laden with happiness and tears.
61: What words of wisdom can I give them? How can i help to ease their way? not they must learn from one another, day by day. | They look so natural together, just like two newlyweds should be.
62: This is the day that the Lord hath made, and I'm so glad he made you. With each rising sun you are here by my side, you are more than a dream come true. Oh, to have you, to hold you, to love you, to pray. To share with, to care with, to hold hands and say. | This is the day that the Lord hath made, and I will rejoice, I will rejoice with you.
63: This is the love that the Lord hath made, that you and I, we are one. Love's mystery i unfolding today, written for us in the sun. Oh,for better, for worse, for rich or for poor, each day that passes, I love you more. | Cause this is the day that the Lord hath made, and I will rejoice with you, this is the day!
64: In this very room, there's quite enough love for one like me, and in this very room, there's' quite enough joy for one like me, and there's quite enough hope and quite enough power to chase away any gloom, for Jesus is in this very room. | And in this very room, there's quite enough love for all of us, and in this very room, there's quite enough joy for all of use, and there's quite enough hope, and quite enough power, to chase away any gloom, for Jesus is in this room
65: In this very room, there's quite enough love for all the world, and in this very room, there's quite enough joy for all the world, and there's quite enough hope and quite enough power to chase away any gloom. | For Jesus, Lord Jesus, is in this very room!
66: All I want is to hold you forever. All I need is you more every day. you saved my heart, from being broken apart. You gave your love away, and I'm thankful every day, for the gift. But the colors fade away, and the years will make us grey. But baby in my eyes, you'll still be beautiful.
69: I gotta feeling... | That tonight's gonna be a good night... | Here we come, here we go, We gotta rock
70: It's always been a mystery to me, how two hearts can come together, and love can last forever. But now that I have found you, I believe that a miracle has come, when God sends the perfect one. | I wonder what God was thinking, when he created you. I wonder if He knew everything I would need, because he made all my dreams come true. When God made you, he must have been thinking about me. | I promise that wherever you may go, wherever life may lead you, with all my heart I'll be there too. And from this moment on I want you to know, I''ll let nothing come between us, and I will love the ones you love. So gone are all my questions about why.
76: It's a brother & sister kind of thing
77: Raise up your hands if you wanna hang
78: You've got troubles, well I've got'em too. There isn't anything I wouldn't do for you. We stick together and we see it through, You've got a friend in me.
85: Where it began, I can't begin to know when But then I know it's growing strong Oh, wasn't the spring, And spring became the summer Who'd believe you'd come along Hands, touching hands, reaching out Touching me, touching you Oh, sweet Caroline Good times never seem so good I've been inclined to believe it never would And now I, I look at the night And it don't seem so lonely We fill it up with only two, oh And when I hurt Hurting runs off my shoulder How can I hurt when holding you Oh, one, touching one, reaching out Touching me, touching you Oh, sweet Caroline Good times never seem so good Oh I've been inclined to believe it never would
86: Stronger than it's ever been...
87: I thought I loved you then...
