Vow Renewal

I have a 1000 thoughts I want to blog about. So many thoughts, so many spiritual questions, so many ponderings. But I am busy. I am in a short season of busyness. Thankfully it's not my norm. But May is notorious for being busy. It's the last month of school, graduations (we know 5 college graduations and 4 high school graduates), Raina's birthday, Brian's dad's birthday and this year we added our vow renewal.

So my thoughts will wait a tad longer. I am jotting down ideas as I think of them so I can blog soon. Blogging helps me succintly decide what I think. I really have to ponder and research in order to publish it. I love that accountablity. It also helps me grow spiritually and emotionally as well as hone my writing skills. Yet that will have to wait. But in the interim, I thought I would share our vow renewal plan for this Saturday.

Our pastor: I’d like to welcome you to Jacob’s Dream and to the vow renewal of Brian and Leah ****. Jacob’s Dream is a beautiful place for Brian and Leah. A place of peace and promise which is why they chose to renew their vows here today. Brian and Leah have been married for 12 years and in that time have built a family that includes their daughter Korie, Salem who is almost 8, Raina who turns 5 on Monday and they adopted Larrah in 2006. They also have Brynna and Angel in heaven. The lord has greatly blessed their family. But they have struggled through hard times as well. On their wedding day they pledged their love in sickness and in health and for better or for worse. The past few years have tested those vows but their enduring love for one another has prevailed. Thus we are here today with family and friends to celebrate and renew their continued commitment to one another. To reaffirm the life together and renew the vows of love, honor and fidelity that brought them together 12 years ago.

(Brian's Dad): Please join your hands and repeat after me:

In the presence of God, family and friends, I now choose to continue my life with you. And in recommitting to you, I renew my vows of love, loyalty and friendship. I am delighted today, in the presence of God and these witnesses, to reaffirm my commitment to you, and once again, to promise to love you, honor you, and comfort you, in sickness and in health, for richer, for poorer, for better and for worse, as long as we both shall live.

My "other" blog is more about day to day life with my husband and kids and rants and raves about a variety of subjects. Hope on over.
