Reading at a Wedding
The Blessing of the Hands.
These are the hands of your best friend – young and strong and full of love for you – that you are holding on this, your wedding day, as you promise to love each other today, tomorrow and forever.
These are the hands that will work along side yours as together you build your future. These are the hands that will passionately love you and cherish you down through the years and with the slightest touch will comfort you like no other.
These are the hands that will hold you when fear or grief fills your mind. These are the hands that countless times will wipe the tears from your eyes, tears of sorrow and tears of joy. These are the hands that, yes, will tenderly hold your children.
These are the hands that will hold your family together as one. These are the hands that will give you strength when you need it.
And, lastly, these are the hands that even when wrinkled and aged, will still be reaching for yours, still giving you the same unspoken tenderness, with just a touch.
May God bless these hands and you today, tomorrow, and forever.
