How did it go again? “To have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death do us part.” It was a covenant made, declaring that no matter the circumstances, despite the rough patches and the lack of feelings, you were committed to loving in action, and keeping your promise as you live out your “I do”.

All the while, trusting God, remaining faithful, focusing on self-discovery and living a full and complete life.
