Meaningful Monday-- On marriage

Chains do not hold a marriage together.  
It is threads, hundreds of tiny threads 
which sew people together through the years.  
~Simone Signoret


Yesterday Kyle and I attended the beautiful wedding ceremony 
of a dear childhood friend, and I was once again reminded of 
how precious and sacred the act of marriage really is. 

In some respects, marriage is delicate-- 
something to be treasured and handled with gentle care-- 
while in other aspects it is as strong as a rock, 
and can hold people together during the most difficult times. 

Marriage is so dynamic and constantly evolving-- 
yet solid and dependable at the same time.

Amazing. ♥
