24: Traditonal Irish Blessing May the road rise 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. May God be with you and bless you. May you see your children's children. May you be poor in misfortune, rich in blessings. May you know nothing but happiness from this day forward. May the road rise up to meet you, may the wind be always at your back. May the warm rays of sun fall upon your home and may the hand of a friend always be near. May green be the grass you walk on, may blue be the skies above you. May pure be the joys that surround you, may true be the hearts that love you.
25: Why Marriage? by Mari Nichols-Haining Because to the depths of me, I long to love one person, with all my heart, my soul, my mind, my body... Because I need a forever friend to trust with the intimacies of me, who won't hold them against me, who loves me when I'm unlikable, who sees the small child in me, and who looks for the divine potential of me... Because I need to cuddle in the warmth of the night,with someone who thanks God for me, with someone I feel blessed to hold... Because marriage means opportunity To grow in love in friendship... Because marriage is a discipline to be added to a list of achievements... Because marriages do not fail, people fail when they enter into marriage expecting another to make them whole... Because, knowing this, I promise myself to take full responsibility for my spiritual, mental and physical wholeness I create me, I take half of the responsibility for my marriage Together we create our marriage... Because with this understanding the possibilities are limitless.
28: "There is only one happiness in life, to love and to be loved."
