“What greater thing is there for two human souls
than to feel that they are joined together to strengthen
each other in all labor, to minister to each other in all sorrow, to share with each other in all gladness,
to be one with each other in the
silent unspoken memories?”
— To Be One With Each Other by George Eliot.
Eliot speaks with such grace and beauty about the joining of two souls in loving matrimony. He describes a lifelong journey that will require deep faith, hope, and much love. Marriage can be challenging, especially in today’s fast-paced world and difficult economic times – but this poem reminds us that the rewards of love are worth all the effort we can bring.
For bridal showers, I like to give brides long-lasting gifts that will stir these feelings of faith in foundational love and bring constant blessings throughout the marriage. Angels are a powerful and inspirational source of blessings and strength, and make beautiful gifts, such as the one pictured here. Marriage really is the joining of souls, and angels help remind us of our higher selves, always there to tap into whenever we need.
For the bride and groom in your life, I wish them every angel’s blessing; and all the happiness they can hold from now through their golden years, when they may share a sunlit porch together in silence, still sharing a look as tender as an embrace.
With peace and love,
