This weekend, I had the privilege of coordinating a wedding. I love when people ask me to be involved in their wedding in any capacity. I love weddings!
As they said their vows, one in particular stood out, “I am choosing to spend the rest of my life with you.” Did you catch that? It’s a choice. Every single married day of our lives, we make a choice. Do we wake up and be present in our marriage, fight for our marriage, be on the same team as our spouse, or do we give up, give in, and check out?
In our house, when we have a bad day, we still choose to spend the rest of our lives with each other. When the dishes aren’t done or supper doesn’t taste great, we still choose to spend the rest of our lives together. Regardless of the circumstances, it’s a choice we make each and every day. We choose each other, our marriage, our family.
