The Beginning 
Today is the beginning
In the years that lie ahead
may you always share the love you have
this day as you are wed
I pray you'll each be one on whom
the other can depend
and may you share not only love,
but be each others friend
some hopes may not be realised
some dreams may not come true
but many of them will I know
to bless the two of you
within the home that you will have
I pray you'll always find
contentment, joy,security
good health and peace of mind.

The Tides of Providence

It's not what you gather, but what you sow,
That gives the heart a warming glow.
It's not what you get, but what you give,
Decides the kind of life you live.

It's not what you have,
But what you spare.
It's not what you take,
But what you share
That pays the greater dividend
And makes you richer in the end.

It's not what you spend upon yourself
Or hide away upon a shelf,
That brings a blessing for the day.
It's what you scatter by the way.

A wasted effort it may seem.
But what you cast upon the stream
Comes back to you recompense
Upon the tides of providence.
