The Wedding

I love weddings. 
I love thinking about all the ways that the Lord is going to use this couple for His glory. 
I love the way love grows over the years, the way such a covenant displays His splendor. 
I love the way marriage takes bravery and courage. 
I love the way it calls two folks to lay down their lives for one another. 
I love how the laying down brings unspeakable joy. 
I love how the Lord is trustworthy... always.

"Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.  And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity." Colossians 3

Yes, this.
May this be the blue print of their marriage. 
May these two live in the gift of knowing that nothing is impossible with God.

Hooray for weddings!
Hooray for love!! 
Hooray for marriage!!!
