On the wedding day, as I walked down the aisle, I saw my husband with so much anticipation as he patiently waited for me at the altar. The moment was breathtaking. Finally, we tied the knot in front of God witnessed by our children, family and friends. Taking the Holy Eucharist as a “sacramentally” married couple never felt so good. My heart was overflowing with joy that I couldn’t contain the tears from flowing down my face. I realized it is not the struggles, the challenges, the pain in life that I should focus on, but the joy of having one another as we continue our journey in life together. I thanked God for making me see the importance of marriage, family, faith and love. Yes, life is definitely full of challenges; it shapes us to learn courage, perseverance, humility, trust, faith and love.
“Love is patient, love is kind. It is not jealous, [love] is not pompous, it is not inflated,Love never fails…” (1 Cor 13:4-8a)
