to a groom named August to accompany a gift on his wedding
at a church near the Susquehanna river Sep 2017

On this August occasion,
you two give us a reason
to visit Susquehanna farms
where food is lovingly prepared and warms
the heart. Your marriage vows
provide the safety that love needs
to flourish midst the whys and hows
of daily life. Each loving act will plant the seeds
that grow into a glorious harvest through the years,
so filled with joy and fun, and sometimes tears.
