2: "Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ loved the church."
9: "Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart."
15: "How beautiful is the body of Christ."
16: Kristi, as we take our wedding vows, I must first say, "I love you." Because I love you as my wife, I want to make these promises to you. I promise that my love will continue to grow as I seek to imitate Christ's love for the Church. Kristi, with all the strength and integrity of my heart, I vow that I will seek Christ's wisdom as I lead our family to honor God. I vow that I will seek His strength and courage as I protect and defend you. I vow to seek His joy as I laugh with you. I vow to seek His peace as I comfort you. I vow to seek His humility as I serve you. Today, in the presence of God, family, and friends, I vow to be faithful in giving myself to you physically and emotionally, and only to you. And finally, I vow to seek Christ's faithfulness as I pray for you and care for you through all seasons of our adventure together. Kristi, I love you with all my heart.
18: Daniel, I love you, too. The love you have shown me throughout our relationship is a beautiful example to me of the selfless love of Christ for the Church. Therefore, as the Church submits to Christ's authority, I accept the position of leadership God has given you. I promise to honor your position by respecting you as my husband and best friend and by trusting you to go continually to God for the wisdom you will need to lead us. Daniel, I promise to love you for the rest of my life. Today, in the presence of God, family, and friends, I vow to be faithful in giving myself to you physically and emotionally, and only to you. I promise to stay right beside you to encourage you, to make you laugh, to take part in your pain. I will be here to share my life with you. I am thankful to God that He has blessed me with such an amazing man. Daniel, I love you with all my heart.
