We made a vow. Before God. Before witnesses. To love. Forsaking all others. We have become one flesh through that one time moment and through the years. Through pain, through joy, through sorrow & loss.
My next necklace will say “all is grace.” For it is.
The trials that have molded and shaped our marriage. The mercy we have extended to one another through the years when we have let each other down. The gratitude we have felt at our daughter’s wedding. The joy at graduations, His faithfulness through the births of our children. His provision.
It is all unmerited favor. It is all from Him. In Him, we are one and harmony endures.
