Marriage – what a wonderful gift

Standard

That handsome man in the middle still makes my heart skip a beat and still puts a smile on my face.  (I swear Sweet Baby Jo is real. And hey, can you really get a good picture of everyone??)

This is just as true four years ago today when we said “I do” as it is to this day.

“God makes your marriage indissoluble, and protects it from every danger that may threaten it from within and without; he will be the guarantor of it indissolubility.  It is a blessed thing to know that no power on earth, no temptation, no human frailty can dissolve what God holds together; indeed, anyone who knows that may say confidently: What God has joined together, can no man put asunder.  Free from all the anxiety that is always a characteristic of love, you can now say to each other with complete and confident assurance:  We can never lose each other now; by the will of God we belong to each other till death.”
