Finally did it
« on: July 25, 2011, 10:54:15 PM »
I got married on Saturday.  I'm now off with  my beautiful bride, Carla, to places unknown to everyone else.  Your prayers for a fruitful and faithful marriage are appreciated.

Awesome! Congrats!
Lord have mercy, may you find salvation through your marriage.
Authentic zeal is not directed towards anything but union in Christ, or against anything but our own fallenness.

Congratulations!

Many happy and blessed years!

Have fun!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Great news! Many years!

Christian marriage is full of blessings and full of struggles. Try to remember that you are now one flesh- fighting together, not against each other. And know that the rewards far outweigh the hardships. In times of darkness, you may question whether it's worth it. But always try to see things from an eternal perspective, and maintain faith even when things seem hopeless. We have a different standard from the world. Christ is in your midst, so never despair. Enjoy each other as much as possible!

Peace to you!

Many Years!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
