18: Ashlyn Jade Crispin. I am so thankful to our heavenly father for bringing you into my life, for every memory, and for your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now. In you God has truly blessed me with a beautiful help meet. In you I find loving care, a source of true spiritual strength and a beautiful, joyful countenance that is my joy to look upon every day which the Father blesses us. It is before our Heavenly Father, family and friends that I will say my vows, as a witness of my love and commitment to you. I vow to value and cherish you as God intends husbands to care for their wives, to love you as my own soul, to provide strength and comfort in all situations, both in good times and in bad. I vow to give you the support so that you should always feel loved, honoured and cherished. As Christ our master laid down his life for his bride, the Ecclesia, I will follow his example to sacrifice myself for you in any way possible. I will sacrifice time and personal ambition to make sure we work together as husband and wife and to make certain that our marriage is one that brings honour and glory to our Father in heaven. I will listen to your concerns and strive to edify and improve our marriage, and to never stop working for you and a God centred relationship. Ashlyn Jade, I love you. You are my best friend, my truest companion and my help meet for life. I will stand by you through anything, in minus 40 or plus 40! I promise in front of God and all these witnesses today, to be your husband till death do us part of our Saviour returns, walking hand in hand towards the Kingdom.
19: Lucas, God has worked in our lives to bring us to this day and over the past 3 years you have become my closest companion, my best friend. You are the reason for my smile, my sunshine and the music in my heart. When I am with you I am better for God. You have shown me what it is to be like Christ. Through your strong leadership, your love for righteousness, your involvement in our ecclesia, your care for others, your eagerness to show hospitality, and the way you sacrifice yourself for me is an inspiration and encouragement to me. You have shown me such godly love from the first day until now. God has blessed us with a home in each other and wherever you go, I will go. My soul is knit with yours, and today as we stand before our family, friends and the angels witnessing in heaven, I take you, Lucas John Cooper, to be my husband in the Lord. As I leave father and mother and cleave to you I promise to be a faithful and loving wife all the days of my life. I will respect, honour and obey you as the head of our family and look to you as the ecclesia looks to Christ. I will do you good and not evil all the days of my life. I give myself wholly to you today as I become yours. Whether we are blessed or struggling with health, I will care for you. Whether God gives us wealth, or we are just scraping by, I will honour and support you. Whatever God has in store for our lives, I will rejoice with you in good times, and be your comfort in the difficult ones. Today I set you as a seal upon my heart, so that we might magnify the Lord and exalt His name together. A threefold chord is not quickly broken and so I promise to put your spiritual wellbeing ahead of all other things, to think of you before myself and to always keep God at the centre of our marriage. From today onwards, I will walk hand in hand with you to the kingdom, as heirs together of the Grace of God, as long as I live, or until our Lord returns. I love you.
