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