Today, we had a little wedding at our house. To be completely honest… it was pretty perfect. It was supposed to be that way.
It was not synchronized, or running by the tick of the tock. There were no grand schedule of events, and not a note to be found.
The bride, and the groom… simply… wanted to marry each other. And as long as that was the outcome, they had very little expectations of anything else. And in that…. was the perfection of it all.
When they spoke their vows, you knew…. without a doubt… that there is a deep love between them.
The ceremony of marriage is as old as old can be. Some say it may even date back to prehistoric times, but most agree, the monogamy probably started with the first “planters” in history. And historically, marriage has taken many forms and variations.
It is defined as a “recognized union.” But truly, it is a celebration of life. Of two lives, coming together, to share life wholly with one another.
So today was a grand celebration. Of love. Of life. Of wholeness and of being.
Congratulations, Jesse & Leslie. May your lives, and your love, be one forever.
