Mr. and Mrs. James Fowler
And they lived happily ever after. Well, isn't that how all love stories end in the fairy tales? But getting married is just the beginning not the end.
Sometimes life is happy -
Sometimes it isn't.
Happiness isn't the goal of marriage.Time spent on looking for happiness will make it so that you miss the important part. Time should be spent more on giving love than receiving it. Time spent on serving rather than being served. Time spent on forgiving rather than being forgiven. Putting God first in everything you do is the only way to love, serve and forgive your spouse..Having someone who will walk down the path of life with you is what marriage is about.
My daughter married her best friend this weekend. I gained another son. Since the day we met him, we knew he was going to be a part of our family. It really hit me when they were dating and he was late getting home and hadn't called her because his cell phone had decided to jump into a glass of water. As she was pacing the floor worrying about him, I realized that I was worrying about him too. I was already feeling those mother feelings of love and protection for him. I also realize that my daughter has a new family too. Her mother in law, loves her and I am thankful that they have a good relationship. Two families paths have joined with my daughter and her husband starting off on their own path together.
Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Fowler!
