3: Haven't you read," he replied, "that at the beginning the Creator 'made them male and female,' and said, 'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh'? So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate." Matthew 19:4-6
4: "The princess is so beautiful in her gown, like a pearl set in gold. Clothed in beauty, she is lead to the king, followed by her bridesmaids. Filled with joy and excitement, they are lead into the king's palace". ~Psalm 45:13-15
8: "Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up! Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken." (Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 (NIV)
9: “Do not urge me to leave you or to return from following you. For where you go I will go, and where you lodge I will lodge. Your people shall be my people, and your God my God. Where you die I will die, and there will I be buried. May the LORD do so to me and more also if anything but death parts me from you.” (Ruth 1:16-17 ESV)
10: "Set me like a seal upon your heart, like a seal upon your arm; for love is as strong as death, jealousy is hard and cruel. Its flashes are flashes of fire, a most vehement flame! Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it." Song of Solomon 11:6-7
12: On this day in the presence of God and these: our friends and family, I, Caleb Ryder, promise my love, to you, as my wife. The things which are most dear to me: my heart, my time, my service, my faithfulness and my love I give to God and to you alone. I devote my life to cherishing and honoring you, to protecting and providing for you, to growing with and sharing this life with you. I will care for you and love you to the best of my ability, without reservation. I promise to pray for you, to lead us on the path which I believe God is directing our lives, to help us grow in our love for God and others, as well as one another. I promise to be there for you as your friend, confidant, and lover, come what may, till death separates us.."we are on the same team". Jesus said, "Greater love has no man than this, than to lay down his life for his friend". Michelle, my friend, I promise to lay down my life in servitude towards God and you, in the ever increasing capacity of my love, through service, and giving preference to you, I will love you as I even love myself.
13: My bff, my loml, my lover..I promise to laugh with you, support you, encourage you, be your #1 fan, grow with you, learn with you, honor your, respect you, pray for you and with you, to remain set apart for you, be part of the three strand cord talked about in Ecclesiastes (God, you, and me). I choose to love you unconditionally today and every day for the rest of our lives! I choose you, I choose us, go team CAR MAR!

27: "Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, & longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him." Colossians 3:12-17 NKJV
30: I hope that the days come easy and the moments pass slow, And each road leads you where you want to go, And if you're faced with a choice, and you have to choose, I hope you choose the one that means the most to you. And if one door opens to another door closed, I hope you keep on walkin' till you find the window, If it's cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile, But more than anything, more than anything, My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to, Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small, You never need to carry more than you can hold, And while you're out there getting where you're getting to, I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too, Yeah, this, is my wish. I hope you never look back, but ya never forget, All the ones who love you, in the place you left, I hope you always forgive, and you never regret, And you help somebody every chance you get, Oh, you find God's grace, in every mistake, And you always give more than you take. This is my wish I hope you know somebody loves you May all your dreams stay big ~Rascal Flatts "My Wish"
