Well, I have returned. For those of you who were wondering why in my recent post I mentioned I was going to be gone for so long, I can now give you the answer.
I’m married now! Hooray! I married my best friend on July 14. It was a beautiful Mass (which I will recollect later in greater detail) as well as reception. Not to mention the Honeymoon was amazing as well as we set sail on Royal Caribbean’s Allure of the Seas for a 7 night Eastern Caribbean cruise.
I will talk about the cruise in greater detail as well, as I did learn a new outlook on life, which I think could be quite practical in how we view our day to day worldview. I learned to be much more appreciative of what I have in life and to be thankful for everything that I have.
On top of that, I can already tell that I am different. There are habits that I have noticed that have already disappeared, which surprises me. I knew that marriage would make me grow more in my faith, and give me graces that I didn’t have prior, but I did not expect them to happen this fast, I figured I would need more time in order for them to sink their roots.
So far, being married is great. It is nice to be with the woman of my dreams at every possible second and not have to worry about when she has to go home. She is always home, which warms my heart thinking about. The one thing I am looking forward to completing soon, would be the whole legality of becoming married (bank accounts, licenses, insurance, etc). But, with time it’ll slowly get done and before we know it that’ll be over.
Marriage is wonderful. I want to talk more about it, but I will wait til later when I can dedicate the proper amount of time to discussing its wonders, as well as spend some more time in thought (I know you expect quality when you come here).
I was also requested a couple of ideas for future blog posts. At my wedding, our wedding coordinator after talking with her wanted to hear my conversion story. Obviously, I couldn’t tell her everything because we didn’t have an hour or two to give my entire story. She asked if I had it here, in which I told her no, and so, needless to say, she requested it. I’ll start working on that soon, as I have several versions and I need to pray about which version I am going to post to make public. Granted, I have already made the most intense version public in a talk I gave, but I will probably give that here. Some time needs to pass before I can post it here.
I still have to write some more on Mortal Sin as I haven’t touched any of that for awhile. So, I have quite a few things to write about and I will get started here soon. Right now, I am busy getting everything reorganized, but, I’m not super worried.
Things are going well as a married man. Its much better so far than I thought it would be (not that I had anything negative to worry about, I knew it’d be good, just didn’t realize HOW good). If you have discerned that your vocation is marriage, you will enjoy it. It is a great experience and it will begin an entirely new chapter in your life (heck, I’d argue it begins a whole new book in your library).
