Today Greg and I happily celebrate our third wedding anniversary.
We chose an Irish folk song as part of our ceremony, and the words mean as much to me today as they did three years ago:
Now with Thanksgiving
Now with thanksgiving we bring on this day
Our praise to the Father, who formed us of clay,
Whose breath of creation, our spirits to fill,
Refashioned our loving to live by his will.
Now with thanksgiving we bring in this place
Acclaim to the Spirit, who guides us in grace
Unto the Redeemer, whose sacrifice shown
Provides us a pattern of love for our own.
May our hosannas returning above
Bring joy to the Blessed who brought us our love,
May we to each other in gratitude give
New psalms of thanksgiving in lives that we live.

Our wedding day was truly the best day of my life. Greg, I love you with all my heart and look forward to many, many more happy years ahead.
