I wanted to share with you some kid’s sayings about love that I have quoted in a number of my wedding ceremonies through the years.  They are priceless, and some of these give some great insights…even though these kids were only in the 4 to 8 year-old category;

“When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn’t bend over and paint her toenails anymore.  So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too.  That’s love.” – Rebecca, age 8

“When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different.  You know that your name is safe in their mouth.”  Billy, age 4

“Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other.”  Karl, age 5

“Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French Fries without making them give you any of theirs.”  Chrissy, age 6

“Love is what makes you smile when you are tired.”  Terri, age 4

“Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK.”  Danny, age 7

“Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.”  Bobby, age 5  (wow, very insightful!)

I just returned this evening from performing a wedding in a house; actually an apartment.  That’s right, an apartment.  Seems like an unlikely place, doesn’t it?  Instead of in a wedding chapel or country club or church setting, there we were in a modest first-floor apartment with a few family and friends assembled.  It was definately a low budget affair for sure.  My ceremony was short and sweet; the bride and groom exchanged vows and rings, I pronounced them husband and wife, and we signed the marriage license.  All in all pretty simple.

But it brings up a good point – the main thing was that there was love in the room; a man a woman making forever commitments to one another through tear-filled eyes.  It doesn’t get any better that this.  All the fancy weddings that I’ve had the honor of participating in couldn’t top the emotion that was present this evening.  You don’t need to have a fancy wedding with all the trimmings to have love and commitment – you can have modest ceremonies and still experience the best wedding ever because it comes from the overflow of love from the heart.
