MJ- Until today the day I told you I loved you the day I knew I was going to marry you that was the best day of my life. I promise to be your navigator consoler best friend and your husband. The feeling that hit me the moment we made eye contact. It was so immediate and powerful. Far deeper than inexplicably beyond any calculation of time and place. You don't describe a feeling like that. You also can't replicate it or force it. You just let it flow in and around you. You go where it takes you. I promise faithfulness and patience respect and lightheartedness attentiveness and self improvement. I will celebrate your triumphs and love you more for your failures . He put the ring on my finger . Tlhogi- I promise to focus a lot more on my shortcomings and a lot less on yours. I promise to forgive both of us for having not known from the start how to be the kind of generous partners we've finally become. I now have the patience that love demands to speak when words are needed and to share in the silence when they are not. I promise to hold your hand every night and to never let us lose the spark. . I put the ring on his finger . Pastor- What God joins together no man can separate. I now declare you husband and wife. You may kiss the bride . He removed my veil and we kissed. The guests cheered and they were ululating I was officially Mrs Mokoena and I found it hard to believe it. I was crying the tears of joy
