Wedding Vows

I, Joshua Patrick Steele, pledge myself to you, Rachel Elizabeth, as your husband.

I solemnly vow

to love you as I have been loved by Love himself

to take joy daily in your beauty and worth as God’s precious daughter

to cling to you faithfully with mind, soul, and body

in light and in darkness

in summer and in winter

in springtime and in harvest

in plenty and in famine

through Sheol to Eden

in sickly decay and in healthy vigor

in unspeakable joy and in bitter sorrow

in the tempests of chaos and in the calms of perfect peace

And, by your side, to pursue relentlessly God’s grace and shalom

until Death parts us

or Death itself is vanquished by our coming King,

In whose presence I hereto pledge you my faithfulness.
