One year ago today, we proclaimed our vows of love, honor, and commitment! We said them in front of an audience of family with a few close friends. The ceremony took place inside a family home, instead of the backyard–due to rain…in a drought year. Though disappointed, the indoor setting was intimate and lovely.
Even though my new husband and I were divorced from our first marriages, we proclaimed those vows in front of most of the same people. What drives people to remarry–to take a chance with love after the trauma and destruction of divorce?
In general, I believe for the sake of having one’s own true love.
This morning, I contemplated the three most powerful and driving of forces for good in the hearts of humankind–faith, hope, and love. The greatest of these is love.
