Mrs. B

Congrats to Mike & Mari who were married on November 21 in St. Louis. The wedding was amazing! I was asked to give a little speech just before dinner and I thought I would share it with all of you.

(Irish Wedding Blessing)
May your mornings bring joy and your evenings bring peace.

May your troubles grow few as your blessings increase.
May the saddest day of your future be no worse than the happiest day of your past.
May your hands be forever clasped in friendship and your hearts joined forever in love.
Your lives are very special,God has touched you in many ways.
May his blessings rest upon you and fill all your coming days.

Dear God, thank you so much for bringing Mike and Mari together as a couple. We know that you have a plan and a purpose for their marriage, and we invite you to come into their lives and relationship and direct their steps from now on. Please give them the grace to put you and each other first every day. Make their relationship a blessing to others. But most of all; make it a blessing to you. Amen."
