Craftiness and creativity of the rustic, country, folksy kind... from our home to yours.

Memorial Candle.

Dave and I both have had people in our lives that have left lasting impressions but are no longer with us. Today I saw this idea (on a wedfo) that another couple are going to use in their ceremony and I thought it would be very suitable for us to do something similar at ours.

They are printing this on cardstock and placing it onto a candle to be lit during the ceremony:

In Our Hearts
We thought of you with love today,
but that is nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday,
and days before that too.
We think of you in silence.
We often speak your name.
Now all we have are memories,
and your picture in a frame.
Your memory is our keepsake,
with which we'll never part.
God has you in his safe keeping.
We have you in our hearts.

On our special day today, we want to
honor those who could not be with us
here on earth, but that are in spirit.

I think this is wonderful, it brought tears to my eyes. =)
