There is so much about this world that is sad. Sick people. Hurt people. Scratched up and screwed up and broken people. I believe in hope, but I also believe in entropy. There's so much to mourn, and rightly, in a world that's falling to pieces.
But oh, at weddings, it's dumbfounding how such a thing could exist in such a world. At weddings there is beauty, and happiness, and love. Weddings were probably God's idea.
God has told us to rejoice. And He has given us reasons to do so. I thank God for creating things I don't yet understand, among them, marriage. For in this we can rejoice.
