Wedding Vows

Weddings like births are new beginnings, a fresh start, and hope for the future.

My niece got married this weekend in a lovely service. As I listened to the minister I was inspired to be a better wife myself. I sort of revisited the vows I made and inwardly determined to do a better job of living up to them.

My sister-in-law, who just lost her husband, is a great example of living out her vows. As she cared for her precious husband in sickness she did so with such a sweet patience and dedicated determination. It is a beautiful thing to see love begin to bloom, but it is also beautiful to see love that endures to the end and beyond.
