Not Just Wedding Vows

They had decided to write their own Vows. And his words had gotten her in tears. She did not know if she would get through hers. The minister cued her to begin her vows. She looked at him and began,


“I, Mary Elizabeth Alcott Love you Jason Shawn Scott and I promise to love you as much forever. I will not just be your best friend, but also will be your encourager, companion and with unselfishness, Kindness and trust work with to you create a life that belongs to both of us that we can both cherish. I promise to never hide things from you and share all the matters that affect us, and with honesty and truth look forward to all the good times, and should bad times ever befall us, I would never leave your side.“


She stopped and looked into his eyes, and found them looking at her with adoration, and tenderness. She went on,


“It is rare to find such unconditional, and true love and I promise not to ever take it for granted and to cherish every moment big and small. I promise not to forget the uncomplicated feelings that we share even when we are faced with trials and tribulations. I not just promise you a marriage but a life that is full of laughter, joys, happiness, togetherness as well as tears, fears and sadness. These are not just wedding Vows but a commitment made in love, kept in faith and lived in hope, a promise to love, cherish and behold you not just till the end of your life but till the end of mine.”


The minister declared them Husband and wife, and she knew what they promised each other today were not just wedding vows.
