You are the most wonderful and precious gift God has ever given me. Through the love you show me, the more I know how much the Lord truly loves and cares for me. I feel so blessed that the Lord set apart someone like you just for me.
What I love most about you besides your incredible sense of humor is your compassion for others. You are always concerned about the needs of others and are self-sacrificing. I love your compassion for the homeless. One example I think of often is when we were talking to a homeless man downtown and you went and bought him an “Awful Awful”( bee note: it’s known in Reno here pretty well as the monster meal a casino serves that many aren’t able to finish:)). And he was also in need of more comfortable shoes since his were worn. You offered to trade him shoes..and gave him your shoes. You didn’t even seem to mind that you had to buy another pair of shoes that night and were walking around barefoot for a while. You are a man that would not only give the shirt off his own back but also the shoes from his feet. Or one of the many times you bought a fresh hot pizza for dinner and decided to give it away to someone who was hungry.
You always put yourself aside for the needs of others. This is what I truly love about you, is your love and giving towards others. “The Lord loves a cheerful giver” and you are most definitely one of these. I am so grateful that I am becoming one with a man who is so compassionate, gentle, slow to anger and caring. Even when we have a dispute I love that you are so willing to work things out quickly, that night ususally…and I love that by the end of the night the Lord has brought back peace between us and we end the night by going to a drive-thru.
You have the charactaristics of a truly God-loving man, God created someone very special and I am so blessed and honored that He called me to be your wife.
Knowing that the Lord has given me someone so much more than I could ever ask for, I promise to be your helper, encourager, to love you and respect you. I promise to be loyal and to stand by you through blessings and trials. I promise to care for your needs. I promise to serve you and to submit to you. I promise to cherish you and always remember that you are of the most amazing gifts God has ever given me. I am so lucky and blessed, I thank my loving God for you.
David, I am so honored to be here to become your wife. Thank you for who you are. Thank you for making me laugh. Thank you for comforting me and wiping my tears. Thank you for answering your phone late at night when I need a good friend to talk to. Thank you for making me feel beautiful and loved. I promise to be your best friend and to love you unconditionally all the days of my life. I love you David, my beloved and my friend.
