John & Janine's wedding took place this past weekend at Darby House near Columbus, Ohio. They asked me to join them as their officiant, therefore, I had the pleasure of conducting their very unique and profoundly beautiful wedding ceremony.
They chose some words that were extraordinarily meaningful from a book that I have not read, The Alchemist. It is somewhat challenging to describe the love that this couples shares, because it is something that causes me to pause a bit in wonder. It just seems so beautiful to me.
Here are the words they chose, "When he looked into her dark eyes, and saw that her lips were poised between a laugh and silence, he learned the most important part of the language that all the world spoke – the language that everyone on earth was capable of understanding in their heart. It was love. Something older than humanity, more ancient than the desert. It was the pure Language of the World. It required no explanation, just as the universe needs none as it travels through endless time. What the boy felt at that moment was that he was in the presence of the only woman in his life, and that, with no need for words, she recognized the same thing. Because when you know the language, it’s easy to understand that someone in the world awaits you, whether it’s in the middle of the desert or in some great city. And when two such people encounter each other, and their eyes meet, the past and the future become unimportant. There is only that moment, and the incredible certainty that everything under the sun has been written by one hand only. It is the hand that evokes love, and creates a twin soul for every person in the world. Without such love, one’s dreams would have no meaning."
