      Blessing for a Marriage – by James Dillet Freeman

      May your marriage bring you
      all the exquisite excitements a marriage should bring,
      and may life grant you also patience,
      tolerance, and understanding.
      May you always need one another –
      not so much to fill your emptiness
      as to help you to know your fullness.
      A mountain needs a valley to be complete;
      the valley does not make the mountain less,
      but more; and the valley is more a valley
      because it has a mountain towering over it.
      So let it be with you and you.
      May you need one another, but not out of weakness.
      May you want one another, but not out of lack.
      May you entice one another, but not compel one another.
      May you embrace one another, but not encircle one another.
      May you succeed in all important ways with one another,
      and not fail in the little graces.
      May you look for things to praise,
      often say, “I love you!”
      and take no notice of small faults.
      If you have quarrels that push you apart,
      may both of you hope to have good sense enough
      to take the first step back.
      May you enter into the mystery
      which is the awareness of one another’s presence –
      no more physical than spiritual,
      warm and near when you are side by side,
      and warm and near when you are in separate rooms
      or even distant cities.
      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.
