Marriage Blessing - Show and Tell Friday

Today for Kelli's Show and Tell Friday, I wanted to share this cute print that I got at Texas Thrift store. Yes, the price in the upper right hand corner is correct---$1.49!!! Then to top it off, it was 50% off!!!! You heard me! I paid more for the easel that it's sitting on ($1.00 @ Dollar Tree), than for the framed print! The mat is a lighter shade of plum that matches my bedroom (one day I'll clean it for picture taking purposes), which is plum and gold. The best part is the poem itself, which reads:

A Marriage Blessing

We thank you, O God, for the
Love You have implanted
in our hearts.
May it always inspire us to be
Kind in our words,
Considerate of feelings, and
Concerned for each other's
needs and wishes.
Help us to be Understanding
and Forgiving of human
weaknesses and failings.
Increase our Faith and Trust
in You and may Your
Prudence guide our
life and love.
Bless our Marriage, O God,
with Peace and Happiness,
and make our Love Fruitful
for Your Glory and our Joy
both here and in eternity.

How beautiful is that?


  1. That is beautiful. Those are touchng words. I like that you saved money in the purchase. Have a great Valentine's Day with your loved one.

  2. Hey Divamom!

    Saw your comment over at the Nest and I wanted to stop by your place and say hello!

    I see you are a fellow thrift store shopper and one with never ending laundry just like me!

    So nice to meet you!

  3. Beautiful words and what a deal!

  4. What a find! The wording is perfect, and I hope you don't mind that I'm copying it. (it will be good for MY soul). Thank you for sharing your Texas Treasures! (I'm in Texas too:)
