A Love Sonnet

Your wedding is one of the most important events of your life.  It is the coming together of two unique lives to become one life together.  Both of you have individual personalities that will soon be merged into one synchronized entity.  In marriage, your families and friends will enjoin the life of your spouse as yours.  There will be times of heartache and trouble as well as times of good cheer.  Respect each other and remember these wise words of Paul as he wrote to the Corinthians many years ago.  The rules for love and life have not changed with time.  May God bless your lives together.  Always keep Him first in your thoughts and little challenges will always work toward the best possible solutions.

I Corinthians 13  

1 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.  2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.  3 If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  5 It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.  9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part,  10 but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears.  11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me.  12 Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.


Marriage is planned and ordained by God.  Be proud of your accomplishments together.  In later years, learn to thrive on the strengths that attracted you to this occasion.  Grow older with respect and grace for the person whose hand you now hold dearly.

I'd like to recommend an Aloe plant for your home.  When you marry your "dream come true", use the Aloe plant for part of the ceremonial flowers.  It is an attractive succulent that will add flavor to the Western wedding atmosphere.  It is also known as a plant of healing.  After the ceremony, place this Aloe plant in your home, in a conspicuous location.  Every time you feel burned by your partner, or by circumstances beyond your control, remember this aloe's healing power.  Knowing that plant was a part of your wedding will bring memories to your minds that will help to overcome the anger or frustration of the moment.  Pinch a part of the plant and rub each other softly while remembering why you decided to become one life.  The healing powers will work again.
