Abiding Love

"Marriage". Our world and society have given this word many definitions. It is spoken of with extreme love and devotion by the couple who have been married 50 years. It is spoken of with disdain by the teenager who watched his parents go through an ugly divorce.

Some say they will never marry.

Some marry for all the wrong reasons.

Some make it a wonderful commitment of a deep and abiding love in their hearts.

Ultimately marriage is ordained by God, not man. Hebrews 13:3 says "Give honor to marriage, and remain faithful to one another in marriage. God will surely judge people who are immoral and those who commit adultery. "(New Living Translation) God’s plan is also one man and one woman joined together as life long partners.
(Not condemning, read the Bible, Romans Chapter 1. Not my plan God’s plan)

This painting of the rose with the wedding rings represents a wonderful love I have shared with one man for over 40 years. God’s plan always makes you the happiest. The two rings represent two separate lives brought together as one, represented by the one rose. When two people remain self-centered instead of sacrificing for the other person, a petal falls. The rose is held intact by self-sacrifice, priorities, unconditional love, and the nurturing of the other by both partners.

May we all bring marriage back to it’s highest standard.
God’s standard.

Creating for Him,
