I chance upon Joyful Toons  once again (I found this website way back in 2008 or was it 2009 and found the cartoons entertaining so if you browse back on those years in my blog, you will see some pictures from this website which I shared for quite some time) and I can't help but smile when I saw this picture:

It reminded me of my own wedding six years ago. I've been told that in order for marriage to succeed it takes a lot of work on both parties. I couldn't agree more. With a lot of broken families and couples filing for legal separations or annulment, getting hitched is somewhat scary. It's like plunging into unknown. It can either make or break you as a couple. That's why I learned that apart from love - patience, trust, faith and acceptance are part of marriage life. As years go by your partner is never the same person you married eon years ago, right? Change is inevitable and so each of us must adapt to change. That means falling in love with your partner (husband or wife) all over again. It may not be easy at first but that's where trust and faith comes in.

To my sister who will be tying the knot this November, wedding preparations is a fun thing to do. It's like gearing up for a fairy tale act in a Broadway show. After the wedding that's when reality sinks in. Just don't forget to put God in the center of your marriage and always pray together for strength and wisdom. Prayer is a powerful tool that is often taken for granted so each of us must use it wisely. Best wishes to you and I'll see you soon.
