“Meeting you was fate, becoming your friend was a choice, but falling in love with you was beyond my control.”
Our mass theme will be surrounded around this Scottish Wedding Prayer; “Lord help us to remember when we first met and the strong love that grew between us. To work that love into practical things so that nothing can divide us. We ask for words both kind and loving and hearts always ready to ask forgiveness as well as to forgive. Dear Lord, we put our marriage into your hands.”
“There is nothing nobler or more admirable than when two people who see eye to eye keep house as husband and wife, confounding their enemies and delighting their friends.”
“Love is a temporary madness; it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of eternal passion. That is just being in love, which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Those that truly love have roots that grow towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms have fallen from their branches, they find that they are one tree and not two.” by Louis de Bernieres
It’s you I like,
It’s not the things you wear, it’s not the way you do your hair–
But it’s you I like
The way you are right now, the way down deep inside you–
Not the things that hide you, not your toys–
They’re just beside you.
But it’s you I like–
Every part of you, your skin, your eyes, your feelings
Whether old or new.
I hope that you’ll remember, even when you’re feeling blue
That it’s you I like, it’s you yourself, it’s you,
It’s you I like.
