Marriage is Like a Flower

Marriage is like a flower. When a couple is united, it is like planting a seed. Both agree to love, honor and cherish one another until death parts them, as that seed of love begins to grow.

As the flower takes root, many storms rage… in marriage — storms of sickness, pain and anger, storms of fear and doubt… But if the couple clings together as the flower’s roots cling to the ground, their marriage will prosper and bloom.

Then, after a lifetime of love and blossoms, eventually, the flower must die, but the love that was cultivated, will never die.
