Marriage Quotes

God created marriage.  No government subcommittee envisioned it.  No social organization developed it.  Marriage was conceived and born in the mind of God.


David Wilkerson

Love is not something you feel.  It is something you do.

Love Sings Hallelujah

Creating a rainbow, love inspires

Connecting two lives, becoming one

Merging together, feelings inside

Celebrating, we’ve only begun


Meeting at life’s crossroads, love brings truth

Confessing before our Lord, now one

Living as a twosome, sharing love

Spending time together, never done


Cherishing our love, always special

Sharing our dreams, dwelling between us

Leading us on a life adventure

Capturing a moment, on life’s bus


Depending on each other, love bonds

Growing tired of each other, never

Celebrating God’s gifts, shared with us

Changing our minds about us, never


Weathering life’s storms, love conquers all

Singing Hallelujah, love declares

Leaning on each other, love endures

Treasuring us, God’s love truly cares

Lori Gottlieb Quotes

Most big transformations come about from the hundreds of tiny, almost imperceptible, steps we take along the way.

Dating is about grand romantic gestures that mean little over the long term.  Marriage is about small acts of kindness that bond you over a lifetime.

Mountaintop Wedding


Mountaintop Wedding.jpg

Montana’s Lone Mountain stands above most peaks

Providing skiing challenges and fun for all to seek

Today brings a most special day on this tallest mountain

Witnessing a wedding with more beauty than a fountain

On a clear and cold Friday love will indeed arrive

Blessing the union of two people to forever thrive

This loving couple enjoys their shared passion to ski

Planning to tie the knot with a wedding party to see

The adoring bride and groom arrive at mid-morning

Riding to the lofty summit in a gondola that’s soaring

There’s no more beautiful moment than a wedding

Joining of two lives as one in this majestic setting

Wedding vows are exchanged in wind—bitter cold

Sharing their simple words of love, special and bold

Precious wedding rings left at home, safely hidden

Dropping them in the deep snow would be forbidden

The brief ceremony moves to its eventual conclusion

Watching the husband kiss his wife seals the union

The newly married couple dressed in their skiing attire

Planning to ski down before remaining daylight expires

The young bride is easy to see as she finishes her run

Wearing a white veil on top of her helmet, just for fun

Both the husband and wife are skiers of great skill

Continuing to enjoy a few more runs is quite a thrill

The Lord has blessed this couple’s wedding day

Smiling at their love with beloved words to say

My youngest daughter and her wonderful husband were married on February 2, 2018.  Yes, they were married just below the summit of Lone Mountain in southwestern Montana.  I honor their union with this poem.  The picture was taken by a member of the wedding party, and it captures the newlyweds completing their first ski run as husband and wife.
