"In the beginning, love was created and it was good.
Yet, as it is with all things, love is a choice.
In the now, a bond is created, and it is good.
Yet, as it is with all things, a bond is a choice.
In each tomorrow, the future will be created, and it can be good.
Yet, as it is with all things, the future is a choice."
"As the love of yesterday binds the present into a touch towards every tomorrow,
Do not vow to renew your choices on your first, your fifth, or your fiftieth anniversary,
Rather, from this moment go forth vowing.
Go forth vowing to choose gently, celebrating life each day.
Go forth vowing to choose wisely, playing after every storm.
Go forth vowing to choose fervently, never giving up hope in things that matter.
Then, as it was in the beginning, and, as it is now,
Yet, it will be in the future…
Blessed with choices, and good."
