Wisdom from a wedding

I attended a splendid wedding recently with a bride and groom who were obviously very much in love, magnificent music and a mother-of-the-bride, my friend Susie, who looked beautiful in a long blue dress.

The wedding included a reading from a prayer written by Robert Louis Stevenson. These are the parts of the prayer that I liked best.

“We thank thee for this place in which we dwell, for the love that unites us, for the peace accorded us this day, for the hope with which we expect the morrow, for the health, the work, the food and the bright skies, that make our lives delightful….Let peace abound in our small company….Give us courage and gaiety and the quiet mind.”

May we all be blessed with courage and gaiety and the quiet mind.

–Joy
