I hear the voice of the one I love, as he comes dancing over the mountains and hills.

I felt his heart as he stood outside, looking through the window and speaking to me. My darling, I love you! Let us celebrate together! For the winter of our soul has passed… the rain has stopped; Sunshine and flowers cover the earth! It is time to sing the Song of Songs! For the cooing of doves is heard in the land; the olive tree brings forth new life while blossoms on grapevines fill the air with perfume. Yes, my darling, I love you I shall sing and dance the Song of Songs with you.

Adorned with ribbons of living color Let us celebrate our joy together And may all of Life dance along… OPENING REMARKS Good evening and welcome to what I am lovingly referring to as Heaven on Earth…for this night all of heaven has conspired to bring us together to celebrate the uniting of Francisco Rodriguez and Came-bra Garland as husband and wife. I am Pastor Virginia Gunther and I have the great privilege of bringing this beautiful couple into a place called ‘wedded bliss’! And is this not most perfect space…and the most perfect timing…to usher in this state of grace?…for marriage…as a metaphor…is the uniting of heaven and earth…when the spirit and soul become united in such a way that the cares of life become strangely dim….and all that remain is bathed in pure joy, pure love...pure bliss! And so this evening, as we gather here, we come to celebrate heaven on earth…and the grace that Francisco and Came-bra have found in one another…and to share our joy and our love them as they declare their vows of marriage to one another. Francisco and Came-bra, as you stand here today – your whole lives are before you – a blank canvas, so to speak, waiting for you to use all that you are, both individually and together, to create a unique, beautiful expression of your love, your joy and your life...and your marriage is yours, and yours alone, to create…for you stand poised in an amazing
