The Two Shall Become One

So today I went to a wedding. The couple happens to be two good friends of mine who I spent a couple of years getting to know and I can say I'm glad the two finally tied the knot. It's been great seeing them grow in the knowledge and love they have not only for one another, but for their savior, Jesus.

This was an outdoor wedding and the weather was great for such an event. It was sunny with blue skies and white clouds. The ceremony was short and sweet and the reception was fun. Great music was played and it looked like everyone there was having fun. I know I was.

What surprised me the most was how unconventional the wedding was. The wedding reception was at the bride's house, which doesn't happen that often and instead of a cake, they had a wedding pie. These were just a few examples of thinking outside of the box.

What I really enjoyed though was the reminder of the beauty of marriage and the fact that God instituted it as a reflection of His love for His bride, the church.

"For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh."

Genesis 2:24

Have a good day. Jesus loves you.
