Marriage and Patience

I took this photo last year. I discovered the quotation a couple of weeks ago. Marrying them only occurred to me a few days ago. Sometimes I have to wait a long time for things to fall together. I'd like to think I'm becoming more patient. Some days are better than others. I'm grateful this night for those who love me and those I love. I'm grateful for our creator who loves us unconditionally and urges us to do the same. I'm grateful for love unfeigned. I also grateful for love that requires cultivation and husbandry. I love both wildflowers and planted gardens.


  1. So, how do I determine whether what I'm doing is inside the box or outside the box?

  2. Beck: I guess it all depends on the box, but often boxes feel, well, boxy. The person in the box feels constrained, hemmed in, locked up, confined, limited. If you feel this way, you might be in the box.

    However, if you feel enlightened, free, inspired, open, illuminated, it could be that you're either outside the box or perhaps thinking outside the box. On the other hand, a person can be outside the box, but not engaged with the environment and unaware of the possiblities.

    I'm a afraid that's the best I can do at the moment. I could be wrong, of course, but I suspect that this will just lead to more questions from you, my dear Beck!

  3. What if the box helps one to feel warm and secure and comfortable and comforted? Is being "in the box" necessarily a bad thing for creativity? Or to be creative and find oneself one must risk the comfortable and see the potential of the other side? Could an "out of the box" thinker learn to see value and creativity by fitting within a box?

    Am I asking too many questions?

    You really don't have to answer... just some thoughts racing through my head.
