Being married is so hard. Snoring, feet smells, toe nail picking, annoying coughing...

Is that the bride or groom who is doing that?

Does it matter who the culprit is?  

 “But at the beginning of creation God ‘made them male and female.’[a] ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife,[b] and the two will become one flesh.’[c] So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”
Mark 10: 6-9

But whew. That becoming one flesh is hard. As my husband and I are coming on up on our 8 year anniversary, I am reminded of:
a-the work God has done and been doing in our hearts
b-the grace of God
c-i am not in my 20's anymore...sigh

Being married is such a gift. I appreciate the wedding industry and all of that jazz but its so easy to get caught up in the party of it all. 

It's a daily choice to choose snoring, smelly feet, toe nail picking and annoying coughing. The ability to be vulnerable and "be yourself" is so freeing! 

I feel as though this bride and groom know what they are getting into and there is celebration in how far they have come and what they are about to undertake together. Just look at the colors! I like that.
