The two shall become one.
Marriage is an ongoing merging.
The wholeness of two different people, continually coming together in unity.
By wholeness I don't mean perfect.
I mean quite the opposite.
Every bit of those two persons are to come together.
We continually meet together, baring all ourselves to the other,
the dreams, the darkness, the beauty, the struggles.
Marriage is learning to love the wholeness of that other one.
But a marriage with Christ at the center will be two who are becoming more holy.
These two becoming more holy, becoming more united,
are becoming a more accurate reflection of the wholeness of God's character.
Marriage is a mystery.
Whole & Holy, Two equals One.
p.s. Have you read "Just How Married do you Want to be?" I've started handing out copies. You may be next.
