BC: Our journey begins...
1: The Celebration of | Jeremy Matthew Boone & Ashley Renee Spencer | Saturday, the nineteenth of December two thousand and nine at five O' clock in the evening New Post Chapel Fort Sill, Oklahoma
3: Marriage is more than your love for each other. It has a higher dignity and power, for it is God's holy ordinance, through which he wills to perpetuate the human race till the end of time. In your love you see only your two selves in the world, but in marriage you are a link in the chain of the generations, which God causes to come and pass away to his glory, and calls into his kingdom. | Dietrich Bonhoeffer | Letters and Papers from Prison, 27
4: I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels. ~ Isaiah 61:10
5: Today I Marry My Best Friend
7: Fort Sill, Oklahoma | OUR | Wedding Day
13: Getting ready for the big day...
15: Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing...
16: Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing: but that it should be holy and without blemish...
18: So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones...
19: For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband. | ~Ephesians 5:22-33
20: Officiant- Chaplin Blount Matron of Honor - Krystle Newton Best Man- Terry Boone Head Ushers- Nick Spencer & Matt Kocerka
26: Although the fig tree blossom not, And all the vines of our small plot Be barren, and the olive fail, The sheep grow week and heifers frail, We will rejoice in God, my love, And take our pleasures from above:
27: The Lord, our God, shall be our strength And give us life, whatever length On earth he please, and make our feet Like mountain deer, to rise and cleat The narrow path for man and wife That rises steep and leads to life. ~John Piper
28: The Wedding Vows | I Jeremy, take thee Ashley, to be my wedded wife. To have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish 'till death us due part, according to God's holy ordinance; and thereto I give thee my pledge.
29: I Ashley, take thee Jeremy, to be my wedded husband. To have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish 'till death us due part, according to God's holy ordinance; and thereto I give thee my pledge. | Forever
31: As you gave the ring to one another and have now received it a second time from the hand of the pastor, so love comes from you, but marriage from above, from God. As high as God is above man, so high are the sanctity, the rights, and the promise of love. It is not your love that sustains the marriage, but from now on, the marriage that sustains your love. | Dietrich Bonhoeffer Letters and Papers from Prison, 27-28
