Occasions: Anniversary

Let marriage be held in honour by all.
Hebrews 13:4 NRSV


Your wedding anniversary is likely an occasion that evokes memories of romance, new love, and the expectancy of a joy-filled life together. You spent part of your adult life in the relationship of marriage. You were part of a couple now physically dissolved by the event of death. Your spouse was perhaps the principal relationship of your adult life. Grief turns to joy in moments that celebrate the honor of a marriage in love and eternal commitment.


God, you ordained the love of our marriage and sanctified our everlasting bond. I remember today with a grateful heart the love of my life here on earth. Amen.


I will bless others with the love of my marriage.
