So – I have been super struggling with a gift idea for Darling Husband for our first Anniversary since I am trying to stick to the “paper” theme. I came across these on Etsy (the most wonderful place on earth):
I was thinking of doing 2 or 3 of them to hang on our (now empty) walls in the master bedroom. I am thinking of using our readings from our ceremony and/or our nuptial blessing. Here they are:
1 Corinthians 12:31 – 13:8a
And the Nuptial Blessing is:
“Holy Father, creator of the universe,
maker of man and woman in your own likeness,
source of blessing for married life,
we humbly pray to you for this woman
who today is united with her husband in this sacrament of marriage.
May your fullest blessing come upon her and her husband
so that they may together rejoice in your gift of married love
(and enrich your Church with their children).
Lord, may they both praise you when they are happy
and turn to you in their sorrows.
May they be glad that you help them in their work
and know that you are with them in their need.
May they pray to you in the community of the Church,
and be your witnesses in the world.
May they reach old age in the company of their friends,
and come at last to the kingdom of heaven.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.”
Thougts? Should I do 2 or 3? If I only do 2 should I stick with just the two readings? I could do all 3 and just hang the blessing somewhere else in the house? Ideas?
