To Liz and Steven:

From our union, we  speak to consecrate your marriage.

Unite your strengths of authenticity, courage and tenacity,
Make of your hands, one hand; make of your hearts, one heart. 

In the words of Kahlil Gibran:“Stand together, yet not too near together:
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow. ”

May the future grant  that which your heart desires;

May you experience a great companionship and
A home with great tranquility –
For there is nothing greater and better than this –
When a husband and wife keep a unified oneness of mind.

May your alliance stand against all threats,
And your union be a joy to your family and friends.

Make your life together extraordinary!

This is your charge:

Consume and distill wisdom from every source.  

With your daily lives, sow the seeds of  understanding, patience and forgiving, always and forever. 

May you fall in love many times, but always with one another.
