The Words that Bind

I know, I know… my absence is getting ‘longer’ and ‘longer’. I wonder if “absence makes the heart fonder” apply to my blog readers as well? 🙂

Well, the truth is… I am going through quite a trying period at the moment… don’t worry, it’s nothing to do with my relationship, my business nor my sanity. 🙂 I will tell you when the time is right. 🙂 Hence, that is the reason I have not been spending as much time at my PC.

Anyway, remember I promise to put up our wedding vows? Well, none of you bugged me for it, but I thought I will just post them up anyway. 🙂

* * * * *
Violet, you are my miracle

You make me smile and laugh
You inspire me to go further
You love me despite my imperfections

I am saved by you in so many ways since I gave you my hand to hold

I promise that through the seasons of our life
From the summer of our youth
Through the autumn of our middle years
Till the twilight winter of our old age
That where you go I will go, where you stay I will stay,
and that your family has become my family
I thank them for giving me the gift of you

You are
My Best Friend
My True Love
My Life’s Champion

I give you all of my trust, all of my tomorrows, all of my life.
I love you.

* * * * *

I, Violet, take you, Jamie to be
my best friend,
my husband,
my love.

I promise to honour and respect you;
to encourage and inspire you.

I promise to love you in good times and in bad times,
when life seems easy and
when we are faced with challenges and difficult decisions.
I promise to love you when our love is sweet and simple,
and when love is painful and hard.

So, it’s voting time! Choose your favourite! Haha! We are the “ever- competitive” couple. 🙂 Or if you are up for it, share with us your wedding vows! Or which is your favourite verse from the traditional wedding vows?Tags: , , , ,

Together we will spur each other on,
encourage each other to grow
and share one another’s dreams.

I would like to improvise one of my favourite songs by Shawn Colvin.

(sing) No one else has ever shown me how.
To see the world the way I see it now.
Oh I, I have never felt love like this before.
And I, I have never felt love like this before.

I give you
my hand,
my heart,
and my love,
from this day forward and for all eternity.

I love you.

  1. Wow! Haha, it’s so nice of you to post your wedding vows, Violet. Funny but, my ex and I never had a wedding vow, haha. 😀

    Hope someday I’d be lucky enough to read a wedding vow to someone special…

  3. talking about “absence”, i’ve had a whole bunch of people asking me when i was going to update my blog page. weblogging started off fun, but now it’s more like a job that i must do everyday :p


  4. Hiya Yan, I hate to be disloyal since we’ve been friends since primary school. Although both your wedding vows are very touching and beautiful…. my vote goes to Jamie. 😛

    Let me know the result of this poll. Hehe….


  5. Kea-
    Haha! No problem… it’s not about loyalty… it’s about the best man/woman wins! Or… the best vow wins! 🙂 Haha… it’s all for fun! I will let you know who gets the most votes ok? 🙂
