The greatest use of life is love. The greatest expression of love is time. And the greatest time to love is now
because you may not have that opportunity tomorrow. -Dennis Rainey, Family Life Today

Nicole’s Wedding Vow to Anthony

My love!

I have waited for this day all of my life. I am finally face to face with the one God made for me.

When I first met you, I had no doubt that you were a Godly man growing in your relationship with God. I know you are a man who constantly pursues Christ and I look forward to joining you in that pursuit.

I admire so many things about you. I respect your firm foundation in your faith and the way you are not ashamed to share the hope that you have in your heart. As you have opened yourself to me, I have discovered the depth of integrity and character you possess. You are genuine! I admire your loyalty and your honesty in every aspect of life.

What I love most about you is your passion—for God, for people, for me, for life. You are truly the man of my dreams! In you, God has given me my best friend!

Anthony, my goal in marriage is to bring you good, not harm, all the days of my life. I promise to do this by serving you and your needs, submitting to your God-given leadership, and being a helper suitable for you daily. Anthony, I promise to join you on the adventure God has written for us. I will respect you as the leader just as Christ is the head of the church. I promise to love you unconditionally out of the overflow God has given me. I will cherish you as the priceless treasure God has entrusted to me by praying for you, supporting you in your hopes, dreams, and desires, and by putting your needs ahead of mine. I will give you grace and forgiveness because Christ forgave me. I promise to be faithful and remember each day that love is a choice.

And I choose you, Anthony! I love you! I give myself to you today body, mind, heart, and soul as your beloved bride.
