So, I’m married now! It’s been a busy couple of weeks and has barely slowed down yet. I’ve had a few hours here and there to catch my breath, so I thought I’d type up a bit of stream-of-consciousness type post while I have a second.
I thought the wedding vows were really beautiful. I wasn’t expecting to cry, but I got choked up saying the ending, the part that goes with the exchanging of rings:
I give you this ring as a symbol of my vow, and with all that I am, and all that I have, I honor you, in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Something about the idea of “holy marriage” got to me, too. As in, “Will you have this man to be your husband, to live together in holy marriage?”
It was heavier than I thought. I’ve been feeling grateful for it, kissed by God, like I have just brushed up against the sacred. I expect that will wear off in the coming weeks, as the newness wears off, but I am enjoying the experience of it for now. I love the things that make me feel close to Him, when I can feel without a doubt that I am held in the palm of His hand.
I’ve been tired lately, looking forward to hibernating after New Years is done. I have so many projects that I need to start work on, but I think a little self-care is in order first. I have dreams of bone broth and tea, curled up on the couch wrapped in a nice blanket. I feel like I’m falling behind.
Might have gotten a modeling/marketing gig for a local startup, so we’ll see how that pans out.
