When you hear of a friend’s intending nuptial coming up, smile and breathe then smile again. Beyond the wedding is the marriage and beyond one person are two growing minds.
The institution of marriage is not one person’s assignment. From seeking consent, to planning the ceremony , living together, growing together and building a family, all lie on the shoulders of two people.
Salute everyone who decides to take the bold step to marriage as it is a decision of the strong and not the dim-witted to make matrimony the way and not fornication as a delay. To see yourself fit to take up the challenge of being someone’s counsellor, playmate, confidant, accountant and most personal assistant is such a honouring and mature decision to make. Those still running are preparing.
For every man tying the nuptial since the year began and those who would follow suit, I salute your courage. I pray that you be blessed with wisdom and be favoured with abundance of provision. Wisdom without provision causes misunderstanding while provision without wisdom leads to misappropriation. May you be favoured with both.
To every Damsel gorgeously waiting on being a bride, may you be honoured as a wife and a gracious mother. You have done well but you should still keep learning. Draw your road map and be a good manager. May you be gifted with knowledge and may you be honoured with dignity. Your children will come to thank you for the choice you’ve made. Think well and act with wisdom .
Your marriage is your story, your story is what you tell of it and what you tell of it is what makes the difference. Write your story with ease and with the pen that best suits your journey. May the blessings of God live with you in your Homes.
