Now you will feel no rain,
For each of you will be shelter to the other.
Now you will feel no cold,
For each of you will be warmth to the other.
Now there is no more loneliness,
For each of you will be companion to the other.
Now you are two bodies,
But there is one life before you.
Go now to your dwelling place,
To enter into the days of your togetherness.
And may your days be good and long upon the earth.


It's called the "Apache Wedding Prayer", and even though I know it probably has nothing to do with the Apache Nation or any other native tradition and was probably created by a Hallmark copywriter, it still gets me teary-eyed every time I hear it. It was the closing reading at our wedding, and it comes to mind today, on the third anniversary of the day we got most of our friends and family together to celebrate the love we share. Here's to many more.
