Love is the Gift of Happy Marriage
By Dave Pipitone
Love is the third strand of a lasting and happy marriage. Love is the most important teaching of Christ. Jesus commanded his followers to love each other as He loved them. He gave an example of the depth of His love by washing their feet, then dying for them to reconcile all people, all life to God.
Do you remember great chapter on love from the Bible? It is found in Chapter Thirteen from St. Paul's First Letter to the Corinthians. Love is the most important trait of a Christian life and especially in marriage. St. Paul writes: "Love is patient and kind... Love rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails."
Love is the blossom of faith, by believing in yourself, your fiancé and in God. Love is the flower of hope by enduring and persevering. Love is the garden where the presence and power of God in you blooms into a marriage of lasting joy, peace, security and happiness.

This is a special time as husband and wife, hand-in-hand with God, weave a tapestry of three strands – God, married man and woman with a new child to bring forth a new generations
Every married couple needs to remember that God loves both of them. God believes in both of them. God’s hope in who they are and what their family will become promises a wonderful tomorrow that brings about new life to them and others in a loving, happy marriage..
