I have been blessed with a husband of incredible sense of humor. he loves limericks as much as I do,…couldn’t write them to save his soul, but will laugh hysterically at whatever I come up with.
It was my second marriage and his first and we did things just a little bit differently. It was a bit past the age of couples making up their own vows, but the Pastor at George’s church had known us both since childhood and gave us permission.
So, as I mentioned in a comment to a lovely blogger (Mrs.Completely) I wrote my own vows and George and I said them in church…much to the dismay of some and extreme delight of others.
(George) A man named George was blessed
to see his Suze so dressed
all in sparkling white
her countenance a delight
upon this man so stressed.
(Suzan) Suze loved her man in Army Blue
and never would she rue
the day they came together
both with a sprig of heather (George and Suze wave heather sprigs at everyone watching)
to share their lives anew.
(George) I will love you forever he said
her reply made him drop his head
(Suzan) I take you for spouse
and lovingly will keep your house
until one of us falls down dead. (the pastor nearly snorted with laughter by this point)
(George) I take you for my wife
to love for all my life
I will bring you chocolate
never hide any in my pock-olets (My dad nearly fell over laughing here)
and rarely give you strife.
(George and Suzan) with these vows we pray
to meet each and every day
with joy and laughter
raised high to the rafters
our lives to enhance with play.
(The pastor could barely catch his breath to pronounce us man and wife.)
