Aiming for progress, not perfection.

"...being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you
will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."
Philippians 1:6

a repost.

this is something my friend molly is considering having read at her wedding. i think it's so beautiful. when i read it, of course, i thought of landon. we've only been married for 10 months, and already his hands have done so many of these things for me. i definitely think molly should have this read. it's perfect.

please face each other and hold hands, so you may feel the gift that you are to one another.
these hands holding you on your weddding day are the hands of your best friend, young and strong and full of love for you as you promise to love each other today, tomorrow and forever.
these are the hands that will work alongside yours as together you build your future.
these are the hands that will passionately love you and cherish you through the years, and with the slightest touch will comfort you like no other.
these are the hands that will hold you when fear and grief wracks your mind.
these are the hands that will countless times wipe the tears from your eyes, tears of sorrow and tears of joy.
these are the hands that will tenderly hold your children.
these are the hands that will help you to hold your family as one.
these are the hands that will give you strenth when you need it.
and lastly, these are the hands that even when wrinkled and aged will still be reaching for yours, still giving you the same unspoken tenderness with just a touch.
