Till Death Shall You Part

“Do you promise to love her/him in sickness or in health, in poverty or in wealth, in good times and bad till death shall you part?”

A young Japanese couple answered, “Yes,”

to make a vow last Saturday afternoon.

Our church, which has a magnificent view of blue ocean and sky as well as a sanctuary with beautiful stained glass windows, welcomes even some couples from Japan every year.

“Love is not a feeling, but a choice.  Even if you feel nothing, you chose to serve someone: That is love.”

“ To serve each other; to lay down your life each other—That is a marriage.”

“ You’ll meet lots of challenges, but if you invest your time and energy into your marriage, looking up Jesus as your loving model, your relationship will get tighter and stronger as if the closer two sides of a triangle are getting to the top, the shorter the distance of two becomes.”

“ I pray that many years later, on your anniversary, looking in each other’s eyes and holding each other’s hand, you will say, ‘I ‘m glad I chose to spend my life with you.”

Interpreting George’s words, I was touched, and moved by tears of the bride in a beautiful white gown.

I was thankful for George, who conducts a beautiful meaningful ceremony, inviting the air of happiness, the Holy Spirit, and for being able to assist him in this way.

I am blessed.
