JOY BE WITH YOUSPRINfi BRIDE
BY IDAH McGLONE GIBSON
Yoifwill look, and probably be,
gloriously happy, Spring Bride, as
"you walk up the ribbon and flower-
walled path to plight your vows to
the dearest-man-in-all-the-world. The
soft, swishing sound of your shim
mering satin gown, covered with the
breeze-billowed lace 'of your wedding
veil, as it sweeps behind you, makes
another pleasing note in the melody
of the medding march.
You are closing the book of your
girlhood, and, as you return from the
altar, you are opening another book
into which you will write happiness
"But I know I will be happy," you
exclaim, "for I love hhn and he loves
Oh, Spring Bride, a happy marriage
means much more than loving.
It means an infinite capacity for
It means tact and the ability to
make joy out of little and to only
grieve over the big hurts that fate
deals to you. '
It means courage and patience and
faith and hope.

that is shining in your eyes and light
ing up your radiant face, you can
laugh at poverty, ill health or even
death, for every day that you Jive
your life together will bring a happi
ness that nothing can take from you.
Joy be with you, Oh, Spring Bride,
and light the altar fires of your home
and heart till death do you part.
