Continuing on with sharing our Wedding Ceremony with you, here is one of my favorite parts of The Song of Solomon.
Our Officiant (my Mother) read this before delivering her Marriage Address.
Set me as a seal upon your heart,
as a seal upon your arm;
for love is strong as death,
jealousy is cruel as the grave.
It flashes are flashes of fire,
a most vehement flame.
Many waters cannot quench love,
neither can floods drown it.
(Song 8:6-7 RSV)
