Bless each marriage

Bless each marriage

Bless each one

Both separately and together

May you feel the blessing of love and caring

That was tenderly bound into your wedding vows

May love reside and grow

May understanding bless you both

May all that flows between you 

Be blessed with kindness

May all that is misunderstood

Be resolved

May all the stresses of the day 

Be wrapped in each others hearts 

Bringing strength and comfort to the other

May problems and anxieties melt away

And be resolved

When held in the Mighty Awesome Trinity

Each of whom bring you a special blessing

A gift to help you both powerfully 

Through times of trouble

And bless you mightily 

In times of joy.

May you always receive good counsel from each other

And when the path ahead is unclear

When illness, grief and difficult problems strike

And there seems to be no answer

May you be blessed by your companionship

To work things out together

Knowing that you are held in the Heart Of Love

Where Miracles, Mercy and Joy overflow

And kindness is available at any time

In all abundance

To sustain you.

Amen

Silence - the fullness of God


 Silence is the fullness of God! The word is complete within the silence. All creativity exists here. This is where the unuttered becomes known. It is where what is not yet become, is revealed and arises.

If we listen we can hear in the silence for the silence is not empty, as imagined and perhaps even feared. It is a vast fullness of awe and wonder where life itself and all being originates from. And all things are possible. And even things we do not appear to know can be found here, prompted by the spirit, entered into with the heart wide open, for this is how creation becomes. It already exists in invisible realms that we can only feel and know when we step into the silence and place ourselves in a state of waiting and listening.

Here we find the tunes of the angels dancing in our souls and the messages of God: the Word alive and aloud and very very present in the apparent emptiness of life yet to be created. This is the exciting joy of revelation, bringing new things into being, greater than we can think or imagine sometimes. For all creation emanates from this profound silence where all is full and yet to be revealed.

Do not be daunted by the normal, the habits or the seeming emptiness of life: the future can be full of wonderful things, new ideas, new thoughts, new knowledge, new creation and gifts yet to come, especially when we enter into silence and there find God, in all His awesome mystery and splendour, revealing beauty unimaginable and joy unbidden.

Sometimes it is better to rely not just on what we know, on what is familiar, but ask for new ears to hear the fullness of God’s heart and new eyes to see what is possible and new, yet to come, that we can create ourselves, with inspiration and trust, with new hope and love in our own hearts.
