vows

had a thought and wanted to pen it down

although the traditional western vows are definitely not part of an indian wedding ceremony, husband and i wanted to incorporate them in somehow. we wrote personal vows to each other that ended with a reciting of the traditional vows

to have and to hold,

from this day forward,

for better, for worse,

for richer, for poorer,

in sickness and in health,

until death do us part

i think husband and i are slowly realizing that marriage is a realization of the vows we spoke on our wedding day, and a challenge to keep them. and in that sense, it is a mystery – in every meaning of that word. there’s exhiliration, trepidation, fear, hope, and excitement. curiousity over what lies around the corner, at the next fork in the road. recently i told someone that marriage is helping me better understand the mysteries of life and who God is, and it is so very true.  it’s not about what cards we’ll be dealt with in our marriage, it’ll be about how we play them. and isn’t that a lot to wonder about….
