The original framework was good. It had a solid frame, a sturdy foundation, and was practical and functional. It worked.
For marriage is the re-imagining of two once separate persons having the faith and courage to repurpose their very lives together, better than before. To every day grab the tools, open their hearts, and repurpose a life. One life. One home. One body. Holding fast to what was originally built in their soul architecture, all the while trusting that something more, something greater is being rebuilt by their lives lived together. Even, or perhaps most especially, when they don't see what is being displayed only trusting that the work is happening and being seen, even admired, by others.
Will I trust The Master Carpenter who ever so carefully and creatively built the original piece? Will I ask for his eyes to see the new framework and new design being created in the rebuilding? Will the new piece, be better than before.
Will I trust, will you trust?
