The celebration of a wedding anniversary is as important as the actual wedding day. On this day, couples have the opportunity to stop and reflect on their love for each other. Many times on significant anniversaries like the 10, 25, or 50th, couples have a re-commitment ceremony in which they renew their vows.
This renewal or re-commitment allows not only the couple, but family and friends the space to remember why these two people came together in the first place. They are reminded that marriage isn't all sunshine and roses. There are plenty of valleys to walk through and mountains to climb; however, when the couple is mindful of their love and dedicated to each other, no valley or mountain stands in the way.
So, in celebration of anniversaries, I offer this prayer:
May the renewal of your life together be blessed,
in order that you may continue to bless others around you -
May your love be so great that when one cries,
