Hearts for Hospice
SOLD to raise fund for Cypress Basin Hospice.
Today is their first married day together, my niece and her new husband. Weddings in the family are always a joyous event. We just celebrated Morgan's marriage to Kelly the end of May and now it is time to celebrate this union. Tomorrow on the Fourth of July, it is the one year anniversary for Justin and his beautiful bride Tara.
Marriage is not always easy. I shudder remembering back to early days of adjustments. Still today I get disgruntled when the toilet paper is put on with the flap of paper going under instead of over. Simple stupid things. Yet deeper are the chords that tie us together. The experiences and growth that have formed us as a couple. The sad times, the angry times, the joyful times and the times we laughed and loved and fell asleep in total bliss.
His hands are the hands of man that works hard and give his entire heart. They are rough and worn and bear the marks of 60 years of living and making his way with his hands as a brick mason and an airline mechanic. My hands show the years of motherhood, holding my babies close to heart, cleaning my own house (always have), yard work and mowing, and the years of guitar playing, painting and teaching. Our hands come together when we sleep at night; our hands come together when we pray at meals and as we wake; our hands join together when we walk; our hands hold tight when we sit side by side watching a movie. Our hands held our grand daughter together as he cut her umbilical chord. Our hands held tight as we buried our eldest grandson, Terry's dad, brother and his mom. Our hands pull together our love for family.
We pray today for this new 'family' as it begins it first day as Mr and Mrs. May their hands be joined in this new life together.
"But at the beginning of creation God 'made them male and female.'' For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.' So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate."
