"For this reason..."


"...a man shall leave his father and his mother,
and be joined to his wife;
and they shall become one flesh."
~ Gen. 2:24


























"Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments.  Love is not love


Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:


O no! It is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;



It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.


Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Beneath his bending sickle's compass come:

Our first kiss... ever!

Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.



If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved."
~ Shakespeare, Sonnet 116




"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.



You're the meaning in my life,
You're the inspiration.
You bring feeling to my life,
You're the inspiration.



I wanna have you near me,
I wanna have you hear me sayin,
No one needs you more than I need you.


And I know that it's plain to see;
So in love when we're together.



And now I know that I need 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.



You're the meaning in my life,
You're the inspiration.
You bring feeling to my life,
You're the inspiration.



I wanna have you near me,
I wanna have you hear me sayin,
No one needs you more than I need you."
~ Chicago, You're the Inspiration



"... What therefore God has joined together,
let no man separate."
~ Matt. 19:6b


Thank you so much, my dear blog-friends
for all of your prayers, support, and
love.
I hope you enjoyed these pictures of my
special day.
May God be honored by Andrew,
myself,
and our marriage.
He has truly blessed us with the love we share;
I pray that our love for each other will only
continue to grow as our love for the
Lord deepens.

All glory be to God!


May He bless you all, my friends!
