“Will You Marry Me?”………“YES!”…….Anchor!
Engaged couples and Newlyweds are in a blissful place in life. Their love stories are heartwarming and inspiring. In the past few days, I’ve watched many videos of marriage proposals and tears streamed down my cheeks as I lived the moments with the couple. Why? It’s the moment that got engraved in their memories, hearts, and souls.
As I listened to the music of the acknowledgments part of the video and read how many names are involved in this breathtaking moment, many thoughts rushed through my mind. I wonder! How much thought and creativity poured in to produce this perfect moment? Men put so much focus and energy on how to make it an extremely special moment. Will they continue with this loving energy to surprise their woman with many beautiful moments during their marriage? What will happen to those couples after a few years of marriage? Will this precious love stay with them for the rest of their lives? What will happen when they face the challenges and hardships of life? At this moment, they are floating on clouds of dreams and desires. They are building towers of hopes and expectations. They are living in their world right now and nothing else matters.
Many couples, after the passage of this moment, get involved in wedding preparation. They are busy with all the details that a wedding requires and many times they forget this moment.
The moment of bliss, as I like to call it, is the moment, which is meant to stay with them for the rest of their lives. This is their anchor. This is the utopian decisive moment that changed their destiny from being single to being married.
To anchor this moment in their memories, hearts, and souls, means that they will always give each other the strength and support to stand firm in the face of any challenges or even calamities. To enliven this moment means that they will revive their love and commitment to each other and to be present with it all the time.
When this moment is forgotten, the anchor gets loose and they drift apart!
