Best Men Speak the Best Words
The sun, hearing of the coming birth of John, sent forth a ray of light specific for him, and when it had traversed the empty void of space, flashing in and out of existence from the speed it traveled, it alighted on the sweet cherub face of John, and as it did so, the melodious pulsing of existence gently lulled the new born babe to sleep.
Carrying the song of the universe within himself from that day forth, John has had only one desire, to continue his communion with those heavenly chords, for, through the songs sublime music, the scaffolding of existence and all its beauty is revealed to him.
Unbeknownst to John, only two months after the sun's ray had graced the smooth face of this bearded man who sits beside me now, who was a baby then, another ray, singular in its purpose, was sent to earth and there its purpose was fulfilled.
As Meghan came crying into this world, a ray of light caressed her angelic face, quieting her wails and softening her baby features into a sublime smile. No longer was there but one who understood the majesty of the song that holds together the fabric of space and time!
Here, on this day, we, who have been called to witness, have seen the union of these two people. And John, who carries the same song within his breast as Meghan, who from the moment of his birth
set out on a trajectory careening ever onward to this perfect moment, who will make beautiful babies, has finally realized his one desire. For, as we said earlier, it is to continue his communion with the heavenly chords. And here Meghan stands, the embodiment of those same chords!
Here is to them and their song!
to a divine, majestic and glorious communion with each other and through each other the intimations of God!
