Renewing Vows on 50th Wedding Anniversary – Love isJuly 28, 2010
Renewing your vows on your 50th year:
The enlightened version
Love is “The will to extend one’s self for the purpose of nurturing one’s own and another’s spiritual growth.”
True love is the soul’s recognition of its counterpoint in another.
A Rare thing in this world; Truly something to be valued.
I understand that the couple to remain married “wishes” to renew updated vows:
Please state “I do” after each vow.
John, do you promise to love Mary all the days of your life?
Mary, do you promise to love John all the days of your life?
Do you promise to be the best friend you can possibly be to him?
John, do you promise to be the best friend you can possibly be to Mary?
Do you promise to work as many jobs as it takes to support your family?
Mary, do you promise to work outside the home as well as take care of the home as well as the children?
Do you promise to stay awake during every movie you watch together and never ask afterward how it ended?
John, do you promise not to disturb Mary when she is doing her crossword puzzle?
Do you promise to give her every putt under four feet…… whether or not your match is close?
Mary, do you promise to agree to play more golf than anyone in the history of the world could ever be expected to?
Do you promise to put raisins in the meatballs although every Italian gene in your body cringes when you do?
John, do you promise to eat everything Mary cooks and not complain when she only cook when your grandchildren are visiting?
Do you promise to only force your grandchildren to go to the dump with you?
Mary, do you promise to speak more loudly if Pop’s hearing ever gets impaired?
Do you promise to “watch” the Red Sox every time they are on TV even though you could never have imagined that you would be able to get a channel in South Carolina which shows games ALMOST EVERY DAY?
John, do you promise to not make Nana watch Red Sox taped games or Red Sox Classics on off days during the season. Whether you are living the off grid lifestyle, training for extreme scenarios, or just enjoying your weekly camping and hiking trips, it is crucial to be prepared for any given situation. Millions of people in the U.S. and around the globe visit national parks and go on hikes, but many of them get lost, seriously injured, or even worse. You need the absolutely best survival and tactical gear if you wish to live and see another day. You don’t have to be an expert survivalist, just know the important tools that you should have on you when the worst happens. #Rotorm #Survival #Tactical #Gear #Review #Experts.
