Gosh, this year really flew by and today my Husband and I are celebrating our 1st Wedding Anniversary.
I don’t really know how it happened so quickly but the year has been and gone in an astounding flash since our beautiful Cotswold Wedding and during this time my life has become even better than I could have imagined.
I hope that Marriage has made me a better person. I feel more secure and loved and safe…and whilst I expect that those things are really no different from they were 12 months ago, I feel them strongly.
We have learnt more of the art of compromise. the art of marriage, and whilst we have so much more to learn which the years will teach us, I think we have made a good start.
I think often of our 1st wedding reading – 1 Corinthians 13
If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love.
But the greatest of these is love
I fall in love with my Hawk more and more each day and, for our marriage, I am truly grateful.
