“The Mystery of Marriage”

Today, my husband and I are celebrating our

4th Wedding Anniversary.

We overflow with gratitude as we meditate on the mystery of love.

Here are some photos from our wedding in 2006

and some striking quotes from Mike Mason’s book on marriage.

“In marriage a man is given the opportunity of seeing one woman,

one person, as he has never seen any other woman or person before.”

“Marriage not only affords a deep glimpse

into the heart and soul of another being as we shall ever have,

but it cannot survive without deliberately striving to preserve

the spontaneity and freshness of this insight.

And how we long for such freshness.”

“Marriage is, before anything else, an act of contemplation.

It is a divine pondering, an exercise in amazement.”

“A marriage is not a joining of two worlds,

but an abandoning of two worlds

in order that a new one may be formed.”

“The marriage vows give glory to God.

While it is true that a man and woman on their wedding day

take a step toward the unique fulfillment of the commandment of love,

it is even more true to say that it is a sacramental outpouring

of God’s grace enabling such love to take place.”

    Love knows no limit to its endurance, no end to its trust, no fading of its hope; it can outlast anything. Love still stands when all else has fallen. Love love love

    The greatest joy in life is falling in love :))
