Four Years

As we reflect on four years of marriage, we are overwhelmed by how clearly we see the grace of God fill our lives.  During this time, we have been fortunate to see the endless blessings bestowed upon us.  Such blessings have come in many forms, none more noteworthy than the support we have felt from our loved ones.  Whether near or far, each of you bring joy to our hearts, comfort to our souls, and tears to our eyes.  We would like to take this opportunity, after four resplendent years, to shower every one of you with love and appreciation.  May we all continue to be “generous in prosperity, and thankful in adversity.”

From the bottom of our hearts…THANK YOU!

In this glorious Cause the life of a married couple should resemble the life of the angels in heaven — a life full of joy and spiritual delight, a life of unity and concord, a friendship both mental and physical. The home should be orderly and well-organized. Their ideas and thoughts should be like the rays of the sun of truth and the radiance of the brilliant stars in the heavens. Even as two birds they should warble melodies upon the branches of the tree of fellowship and harmony. They should always be elated with joy and gladness and be a source of happiness to the hearts of others. They should set an example to their fellow-men, manifest true and sincere love towards each other and educate their children in such a manner as to blazon the fame and glory of their family.

my Lord!  O my Lord!  These two bright orbs are wedded in Thy love, conjoined in servitude to Thy Holy Threshold, united in ministering to thy Cause.  Make Thou this marriage to be as threading lights of Thine abounding grace, O my Lord, the All-Merciful, and luminous rays of Thy bestowals, O Thou the Beneficent, the Ever-Giving, that there may branch out from this great tree boughs that will grow green and flourishing through the gifts that rain down from Thy clouds of grace.
Verily, Thou art the Generous.  Verily, Thou art the Compassionate, the All-Merciful.
—`Abdu’l-Bahá
