Renewing vows

(4 Posts)

My husband and I (after living apart but still together if that makes sense) want to renew our wedding vows next summer when my brother in law - (priest) comes home for a holiday -
I wondered if anyone knew of any meaningful gospel readings or similar that I could use -have one from the book of Ruth - wherever you go, i go, your tears are my tears etc, and am also checking the Prophet on love and marriage, but wondered if anyone had any other ideas?
Thanks for any help on this

OK, not the bible but

When you fall in love it is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then it subsides and when it subsides you have to make a decision, you have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part, because this is what love is.
Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the desire to mate every second of the day, it is not lying awake at night imagining he is kissing every part of your body. No, don’t blush, I am telling you some truths. This is just ‘being in love,’ which any of us can convince ourselves we are in. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away. It doesn’t sound very exciting does it? But it is.

Dont think you can beat either 1Corinthians 13 oe 1 John in the bible on the meaning of love personally.

thanks for those - maybe good to have a bible and a contrast and although i can't imagine husband's aunt sitting through captain corelli's piece, it is a lovely piece
