Wedding Vows

Dearly beloved, Family and Friends, we are gathered here today October second, the year two thousand and 13, to celebrate the wedding anniversary of Edward and Karina Parmenter, and to bear witness on the renewal of these such said vows, made twenty years ago today. Please remember to attend the post ceremony dinner.

Edward and Karina, when you first joined hands and hearts in marriage 20 years ago, you did not know where life would take you. You both promised to love, honor and cherish each other through all the valleys and hills of life. Over the years you both have been through the darkness and into the light. You have faced great obstacles and been given many wonderful blessings.

Marriage is a commitment in learning to care for one another in mutually fulfilling ways. It is not an act, but rather a life-long relationship always in the making; and today, having fulfilled the vows to love, honor and cherish each other that you made twenty years ago on your wedding day, you stand before an audience of family and friends as witness to your life together and renewed love to each other.

Marriage deepens and enriches every facet of life.

Happiness is fuller, memories are fresher, commitment is stronger, even anger is felt more strongly, and passes away more quickly.

Marriage understands and forgives the mistakes life is unable to avoid. It encourages and nurtures new life, new experiences, and new ways of expressing a love that is deeper than life.

When two people pledge their love for each other in marriage, they create a spirit unique unto themselves which binds them closer than any spoken or written word.

Marriage is a promise made in the hearts of two people who love each other and the potential of marriage requires a lifetime to fulfill.

One of the great blessings of marriage is the joy and responsibility of raising a family. Not only have Karina and Edward been truly blessed to be life-long companions, but also the loving parents of two Beautiful children............

As Karina and Edward renew their wedding vows to each other today, they also renew their commitment to being loving and caring parents to Lyndsay and Laurel, recognizing with both gratefulness and blessings the happiness and fulfillment that Laurel and Lyndsay and their love for each other have brought to their life, not only as husband and wife, but as parents with the responsibility of being their for the girls as well as for each other. Illustrating how to be one family while still being oneself.

So today as we gather, and you Karina and Edward both reflect over the past 20 years as husband and wife,
DO YOU both wish, to reaffirm the vows you took 20 years ago.

WE DO!!!!

Please face each other and join hands.,,,,,,,,,,,(Karina' hand on top)

Karina, will you continue to live in a loving marriage and have Edward as YOUR husband?

I Will

Karina, will you continue to love, honor, and cherish Edward in sickness and in health, for richer or for poorer, for better or for worse, forsaking all others and remaining faithful to Edward as long as you both shall live?

I Do

Edward, will you continue to live in a loving marriage and have Karina as YOUR wife?

I Will

Edward, will you continue to love, honor, and cherish Karina in sickness and in health, for richer or for poorer, for better or for worse, forsaking all others and remaining faithful to Karina as long as you both shall live?

I Do

On your wedding day you exchanged rings as a symbol of your never-ending circle of love for each other. Rings serve as a reminder of your wedding vows to each other, and your commitment to live in unity and love. At this time it is appropriate to reconfirm the meaning of the rings you both wear.

Please join hands,,,,,,,,,,,(Karina' hand on top)

Karina repeat after me,,,,,,,,(Karina' hand on top)

Edward, I wear this ring you placed on my hand ///// as a symbol of my never-ending love and commitment to you!

Edward repeat after me,,,,,,,,,,(Edward' hand on top)

Karina, I wear this ring you placed on my hand ///// as a symbol of my never-ending love and commitment to you!

Karina and Edward, today you have renewed the promise and vows you made to each other on your wedding day. You have renewed your commitment to be loving parents to Lyndsay and Laurel and you have symbolized the renewal of the marriage union by the joining of hands, the taking of vows, and by the wearing of your wedding rings.

Now by the power vested in me by God, the state of Florida, and the Church, I ask that you both continue to cherish each other as special and unique individuals, and that you each respect the thoughts and ideas of one another, and Continue to forgive and not begrudge in good times and in bad.

It is with pleasure that we conclude the renewing of your wedding vows ceremony celebrating the never-ending love you have for each other, with a KISS.

Edward You may Kiss the BRIDE,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,


PS Remember to attend the dinner which will follow the ceremony.

racially divided nation

I am sad, the evening of the 2012 presidential election i went to sleep to a divided nation, Yes, an economically divided country.  I woke realizing (accepting the fact) we are a racially divided country filled with social entitlement recipients whom will never vote for anyone but a "bro".

(i say this not as a white man, but as an AMERICAN pitted against racial discrimination laws placed upon the nation in the name of equal opportunity).

I am sorry, but as a boy growing up as an Italian roman catholic my family was condemned as well.  The KKK clearly hated Jews, blacks, roman catholics, as well as a variety of other non white peoples. 

I did not collect any one race and ship them to a new world
I did not instill fear in others to have me I am looked upon as the opposition, and condemned
My German uncle did not work towards the annihilation of one race/religion

It is not for me to apologise for the faults of others, as wrong as they may have been, but it is my responsibility to contribute to the growth of a nation United, together.  (and i just don't see that from the opposition, i am sorry).

You see after researching how the obama win was garnered, it was apparent that most blacks/minorities voted for this socialist president. (move over Russia, Greece, Italy, make room for the Chinese

The white man is not considered in this equation, he the white man has become the opposition, the peoples to beat.  As part of a society that measures by government intervention, how well a race or ethnic background is advancing, it is obvious that the white man is not considered a minority, even tho he has become over run by the population of entitlement families.

I must confess that i am sad to speaking out as such, but i do feel that our countries great leader Martin Luther King Jr is rolling over in his grave.  Observing what he fought so humbly for, equality has been turned into a battle force to dominate the white man. 

I am not sure if it is against the LAW to be expressing these thoughts outwardly, but it is never my intention, desire or or do i seek to offend others with such, but "numbers" never lie, and always express the populous opinion. 

This election has not been as much for the country, as it has been for the societal "takers" of governmental entitlements.  White, black, german, italian, chinese, indian, asian, or whatever other race GOVERNMENT yokes us with, the nation is hurting as a whole, and classifications divide us as a NATION, into many.

i am sad tho, to see that according to polls 93% of a race voted for thier own.  Being wholely accused as a white man to be racise, the results of this election illustrate the opposite.

Romney oboma

Are we kidding ourselves,,,,,,really

Here we have very wealthy people seeking office and we as dependents of government are suggesting that we are better off today than four years ago.

Wow, what a sick world we live in.  With about 47% of Americans on Government entitlment programs it is no wonder we have a difficult time getting someone as President that will make a difference for the average person. 

You see the average person runs small business, or did so in the past.  Now we have only the very rich.  Remember when you could go to the drug store run by a common person of the community.  Not some person that travels 30 miles just to make more money. 

I am not saying we are better off with either person for the Presidency of the USA, however would you want some dude who has great book knowledge and very little world experience.  Perhaps you want a person whom has book knowledge and much success in running companies.

The real problem America has is that almost half the population wants something for nothing.  Some form of entitlement.  Some form of program that GIVES people money for not working. 

They will work at keeping a loser in office.  they want PROGRAMS. 

I want the opportunity to succeed without restrictions from government.  I want to trust in God with each new day that HE will guide me in the path of HIS righteousness, not some person doling out free food, money, rent.

Reasons for this Blog:

to defend in a civil Christian manner, the political attacks of Government, Society, and the devil against mankind, "But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, being ready always to give an answer to every man that ask you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear." 1st Peter 3:15.

Ephesians 6:12 is a volcano of insight to the Spiritual War waged against mankind from the Fall of Adam, "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."
