Champagne Toast

May your marriage bring you all the exquisite excitement a marriage should bring.

May you need one another, but not out of weakness.

May you want one another, but not out of lack.

May you look for things to praise, often say I love you, and take no notice of small faults.

May you have happiness, and may you find it making one another happy.

May you have love and may you find it loving one another.


Music:  Happy Together ~ Blake Shelton and Gwen Stephani

Love, by Roy Croft

I love you, 

not only for what you are, 

but for what I am when I am with you.

I love you, 

not only for what you have made of yourself,

but for what you are making of me.

I love you, 

for the part of me that you bring out.

I love you,

for putting your hand into my heaped-up heart,

and passing over all the foolish, weak things that you can’t help dimly seeing there,

and for drawing out, into the light,

all the beautiful belongings that no one else had looked quite far enough to find.

I love you,

because you are helping me to make of the lumber of my life not a tavern, but a temple.

Out of the works of my every day, not a reproach, but a song.

I love you,

because you have done more than any creed could have done to make me good,

and more than any fate could have done to make me happy.

You have done it without a touch,

without a word,

without a sign.

You have done it by being yourself.

Perhaps that is what being a friend means, after all.
