If I were to ask you what the three most powerful words in this universe are, you will probably answer “I Love You.”
And I would disagree.
I Love You – They make any relationship special. They make any moment so important. They make you feel on top of the world.
I Love You – What if I told you there’s something better? That there’s something more important?
I recently stumbled upon the wedding video of Colleen and Joshua. For a very long time, I thought I was the only person who believed in those words. Who knew how they made every other sentence in this entire galaxy seem so irrelevant. And then I heard Joshua’s wedding vows.
Love. He can love you and still not be with you.
Love. She will love you and still marry him.
Love. They love you but still won’t want you.
Love. It’s not the most powerful word.
Love. It’s not enough.
They still have to Choose you.
On your worst day, when you’re stuck with the flu and your loved one has to be elsewhere, it is not love that keeps them by your side. It is the choice that you are more important than anyone else. Because there isn’t a sentence in this world that will matter as much as – I Choose You.
I Choose You. In sickness and in health.
I Choose You. For better or for worse.
I Choose You. Since the day you were born until forever.
I Choose You. Despite your flaws and your shortcomings.
I Choose You. You’re not my best friend, you’re my sister.
I Choose You. You were a parent when we had none.
I Choose You. No matter what the world comes up with.
I Choose You. Despite the rest of the human population.
I Choose You. Even if she’s better.
I Choose You. Today. Tomorrow.
For the rest of my life,
I will always choose you.
