He was the center of the wedding. I pray He remains center of their marriage.
Marriage is God’s thing, our Pastor Tim says at each wedding I have heard him officiate. This was not one of his ceremonies. The pastor who was there invited each person to recognize this wedding, this marriage, was not just about two people; it was (and is) about the community of life in Christ.
A wedding is a celebration of the beginning of a marriage. We all have a responsibility to the newly wed couple.
To celebrate with them on their wedding day. And so much more.
To pray for them.
To intentionally invest in their developing relationship when things get tough by pointing them to Christ and back to each other.
To laugh with them, cry with them as the years go by.
To help them find answers to big questions.
To pray for them (yes I mentioned that before but we can’t ever pray too much!)
To eat cake with them on their wedding day (isn’t it beautiful?) (The cake topper was designed by my friend Lisa Leonard. You can find it and more lovelies on her site.)
To toast them.
To love them as Christ loves us and help them love each other in the same manner.
Weddings are joyful beginnings.
Marriages are meant to be joyful marathons.
Stronger daily. Trusting more. Yielding more.
Weddings remind those of us who are married why we said yes to our spouse in the first place!
And why we’d say yes again.
We’re reminded to pray for each other more.
Seek wise counsel when we are trying to answer life’s big questions.
Rely on one another more.
Support one another more.
Have fun together…more!
I love weddings. They are so hope-full!
Been to a wedding lately?
