A wedding wish

Stuart Murphy and Lauren Murphy said "I do" Saturday beneath sweeping boughs of a pecan tree at Cairo Plantation, home of John and Pam Sloan.

It was a beautiful country wedding.

A special part of it was a reading by Lisa Melinda Wheeler.

It is so beautiful and meaningful that I want to reprint it and dedicate it to all married couples and those to be:

"Now you will feel no rain,
for each of you will be shelter for the other.

Now you will feel no cold,
for each of you will be warmth to the other.

Now there will be no loneliness,
for each of you will be a companion to the other.

Now you are two persons,
but there is only one life before you.

May beauty surround you both on the journey ahead
and through all the years.

Treat yourself and each other with respect
and remind yourselves often of what brought you together.

Give the highest priority to the tenderness, gentleness and kindness that your connection deserves.

May happiness be your companion and your days be good and long upon the earth."
