Some sweet quotes

When you wake up in the morning, Pooh, said Piglet at last,
what's the first thing you say to yourself?
What's for breakfast? said Pooh. What do you say, Piglet?
I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today? said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughtfully.
Its the same thing, he said.

~~~

I will love you in a box
I will love you with a fox
I will love you here or there
I will love you anywhere
adapted from Dr. Suess's Green Eggs & Ham

"How much do you love me?" she asked.
"If I had to fill a glass, you'd have oceans."
"And, how much do you love me?" he asked.
"More than there are stars in the sky."

~~~

I have a garden of my own
Shining with flowers of evry hue;
I love it dearly while alone,
But I shall love it more with you. Thomas Moore"Love is the only flower that grows
and blossoms
Without the aid of the seasons."-Kahlil Gibran"Love one another, but make it not
a bond of love;
Let it rather be a moving sea
between the shores of your souls."Kahlil Gibran

~~~

The night before the day of our wedding
I dreamed that the universe had a party,
All the stars were invited,
Beneath sparkling chandeliers,
the planets rejoiced;

~~~

In all its beautiful, candle-lit galaxies,
Crowded with glass-clinking revellers,
The Cosmos was Laughing with
Lasting Love and Light.Kate Farrell b. 1946

~~~

What is this day with two suns in the sky?
Day unlike other days,
with a great voice giving it to the planet,
Here it is, enamored beings, your day!
~~~
"Quatrain" Jalal-ud-din, 1207-1273

~~~

You have kissed a thousand times, maybe more. But today, the feeling is new. No longer simply partners and best friends, you have become husband and wife and sealed the agreement with a kiss. today, your kiss is a promise.

Hawaiian Prayer
Having a Hawaiian wedding prayer read at your Hawaii wedding seems like a natural thing to do. The language is so beautiful and Hawaiian prayers are just so lovely.

There are many different kinds of prayers out there to choose from. One of the most popular is using the Lord's Prayer in Hawaiian.

Here is the Hawaiian translation.

E ko makou makua iloko o ka lani,
e hoanoia kou inoa. E hiki mai kou aupuni;
e malamaia kou makemake ma ka honua nei,
e like me ia i malamaia ma ka lani la;
E haawi mai ia makou i keia la,
i ai na makou no keia la. E kala
mai hoi ia makou i ka makou lawehala ana,
me makou e kala nei i ka poe i
lawehala i ka makou. Mai hookuu oe ia
makou i ka hoowalewale ia mai;
E hoopakele no na e ia makou i ka ina;
No ka mea, nou ke aupuni, a me ka mana,
a me ka hoonaniia, a mau loa aku.
Amene

Legend of the Sand Dollar

Version One:

There's a pretty little legend
That I would like to tell
Of the birth and death of Jesus
Found in this lowly shell.

If you examine closely,
You'll see that you find here
Four nail holes and a fifth one
Made by a Roman's spear.

On one side the Easter lily,
Its center is the star
That appeared unto the shepherds
And led them from afar.

The Christmas poinsettia,
Etched on the other side
Reminds us of His birthday,
Our happy Christmastide.

Now break the center open,
And here you will release
The five white doves awaiting
To spread Good will and peace.

This simple little symbol,
Christ left for you and me
To help us spread His Gospel
Through all eternity.

Version Two:
Upon this odd-shaped sea shell
A legend grand is told
About the life of Jesus
The wondrous tale of old

The center marking plainly shows
The well known Guiding Star
That led to tiny Bethlehem
The Wise Men from afar

The Christmas flower, Poinsettia
For His Nativity
The Resurrection too is marked
The Easter Lily, see

Five wounds were suffered by our Lord
From nails and Roman's spear
When He died for us on the cross
The wounds show plainly here

Within the shell, should it be broke,
Five Doves of Peace are found
To emphasize this legend
So may Love and Peace abound

Version Three:
Upon this odd-shaped seashell a legend grand is told,
about the life of Jesus, that wondrous tale of old.
At its center you will see, there seems to be a star,
like the one that led the shepherds and wise men from afar.
Around its surface are the marks of nails and thorns and spear,
suffered by Christ upon the cross; the wounds show plainly here.
But there is also an Easter lily, clear for us to see,
the symbol of Christ's resurrection for all eternity.

Version Four:
The legend of the Sand dollar
That I would like to tell
Of the birth and death of Jesus
Found in this lovely shell.
If you will examine closely,
You'll see that you find here
Four nail holes a fifth one
Made by a Roman's spear.
On one side the Easter Lily,
It's center is the star
That appeared unto the shepherds
And led them from afar.
The Christmas Poinsettia
Etched on the other side
Reminds us of his birthday,
Our happy Christmas tide.
Now break the center open
And here you will release
The five white doves awaiting
To spread good will and peace
This simple little symbol,
Christ left for you and me.
