Happy 40th Anniversary of Marriage to my parents, Ron and Judy! Thank you for your love and example.
Lord God and Creator, we bless and praise your name. In the beginning you made man and woman, so that they might enter a communion of life and love. You likewise blessed the union of Ronald and Judy so that they might reflect the union of Christ with his Church: like with kindness on them. Amid the joys and struggles of their life you have preserved the union between them; renew their marriage covenant, increase your love in them, and strengthen their bond of peace, so that surrounded by their children they may always rejoice in the gift of your blessing. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen. --- Book of Blessings
