when you get into bed after midnight after a long day of not really seeing each other at all and you reflect on 13 years together; the low points of marriage so far which include that really bad haircut you got right before your 1st anniversary and the unhealthy communication style that the two of you held onto for years: you quick to point fingers, him quick to shut down, and the highlights of the last 13 years of moving into the depths of love include all of this year where communication has finally gotten healthier and stronger and more grace-filled, and also that you can look into practically every day since the i do and see a bigger love because even in the desperate moments and struggles you see clearly a faithful, kind, loving god shaping, creating, refining two souls.

and the resolution of May 20, 2000 is the same as May 20, 2013...
"what god has joined together let man not separate".  amen and amen.

let love and faithfulness never leave you. bind them around your neck write them on the tablet of your heart
