May 22, 2010

When I look at people's wedding pictures, I prefer to be the one holding the album. In this way, I control the pace. I find that when a newly wedded couple is entrusted with the responsibility of flipping the pages, each picture becomes a story, and the album, in turn, a Russian novel. On this side of marriage, I understand the sentimentality of the images that capture this event and a couple's desire to share this. Still, I will allow you to peruse these few pictures at your own pace.

As for married life, at a month and a half in, I think we've got it down. However, it will take me another month to finish the book that I'm writing on the subject I'm right, I win, Just Listen. Seriously though, we are really enjoying our life together. I think a lot of this has to do with the fact that we enjoyed our lives even before we met. This doesn't mean that we delighted in those solitary Saturday nights of scanning the Blockbuster aisles. I remember quite vividly returning to REAME's gates at night, knowing that no one was waiting for up for me. So, I won't belittle the struggles of my single friends by saying this glibly. I just feel it necessary to affirm the hope of a Saviour who doesn't always employ marriage or loving parents or wealth to communicate His severe love for us.
