Just a fun quote to start the week.
Last week I traveled to Iowa with two girlfriends to do some antiquing/junking/treasure hunting. We stayed with my family and I got the chance to show them some of the beautiful side of Iowa. The one night my dad encouraged us to go out and see the clear sky full of stars. If it had not been so darn chilly that night, I think we would have stayed out there gazing at them for hours. It is so dark with no city lights, crisp and clear with no pollution and the sky is polka-dotted with millions of pricks of light. It is gorgeous and awe-inspiring.
I originally found this quote when I was looking for inspiration for a bride. I loved the concept that we don’t need the material stuff in a marriage. It is the commitment to standing and enjoying the light and awe of love. And sometimes that is hard–life gets clouded with pollution and swamped with light that drowns out the simple things. It is about stopping to be together and just enjoy. It is about keeping a promise to shine for each other. It is about that forever quality of being in a very special relationship, especially when it is grounded by faith and the knowledge it can go on for eternity.
So tonight, find the light of a star–outside or the inside the one you love and enjoy it.
