A Thought for Valentine’s Day

Love is the most powerful of all human alchemies. As wedding officiants, we are blessed with the awesome task to witness two human lives changing the course of human history. With the saying of a few words lives are forever transformed.  In the utterance of those few words, two singular orbiting galaxies melt and in their new bond heaven is redesigned, the world is recreated.

And yet, this flash is not a flash, but the result of the silent, ever gradual, metamorphosis of what it takes to grow a human. In this chemistry of time, this pregnancy of relationship, in the womb of presence, words, and emotions, hearts are healed and made whole and this love is born, only to be shared.

May your Valentine’s Day be wonderful.

Charlie and Cheryl
