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.
Hey, I don't hand out 9.5s to just anyone!  ;D

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.

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!

""Love is a dangerous thing. It will crush you if you trust it. But without it you can never be whole. Love crucifies, but love saves. We will either be saved together with love, or damned alone without it."    Selam, +GMK+

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

God bless and many years!
These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. -The Lord Jesus

The Saviour is made of elements which are distinct from one another yet He is not two Persons. God forbid! For both natures are one by the combination. -St. Gregory Nazianzen
