2: God has brought together two young beautiful souls, and we should all rejoice at what God has done.
3: A Day of Celebration
6: An excellent wife, who can find? For her worth is far above jewels. The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain. She does him good and not evil all the days of her life. She looks for wool and flax and works with her hands in delight. She is like merchant ships; She brings her food from afar. She rises also while it is still night and gives food to her household and portions to her maidens. She considers a field and buys it; from her earnings she plants a vineyard. She girds herself with strength and makes her arms strong. She senses that her gain is good; her lamp does not go out at night. She stretches out her hands to the distaff, and her hand grasp the spindle. She extends her hand to the poor, and she stretches out her hands to the needy. She is not afraid of the snow for her household, for all her household are clothed with scarlet. She makes coverings for herself; her clothing is fine linen and purple. Her husband is known in the gates, when he sits among the elders of the land. She makes linen garments and sells them, and supplies belts to the tradesmen. Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she smiles at the future. She opens her mouth in wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. She looks well to the ways of her household, and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and bless her; her husband also, and he praises her, saying: "Many daughters have done nobly, but you excel them all. Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised. Proverbs 31:10-30
9: Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself up for it; that he might sanctify it, having cleansed it by the washing of water with the word, that he might present the church to himself a glorious church, not not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. Even so ought husbands also to love their own wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his own wife loveth himself: for no man ever hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as Christ also the church. Ephesians 5:25-29
12: Dear Heavenly Father, We come before your thrown with great joy. We ask that you would abundantly bless this day. Let it be a wonderful day of celebration and fellowship. Let everything we do be honoring and pleasing to you.
15: THE CERMONY OF SAND The ceremonial pouring of sand from two jars into one, represents the act of two becoming one. So intimate is marriage that it is described as "two becoming one flesh." So powerful is this union that it can not be broken if God is in the center. We pray that this ceremony will be a constant reminder of what God has done. It symbolizes more than the joining of the two people. It represents the joining of two lives and two families. The blending of two pasts and two futures and all of the sorrows, the joys, and the dreams you each have.
16: I give you this ring as a symbol, of my love and my vow, and with all that I am,and all that I have, I honor you..., in the Name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost.
22: Noah, I love you because you bring out the best in me, you have since the first day we met. You have looked past all my flaws, and you have taught me how wonderful love is. You are not only my best friend, you are my soul mate. I want to make these promises to you here and now. I promise to be here for you through any situation. I promise to keep a level head when times get tough, and I promise to be faithful to you now and forever. I promise to be the best wife I can be, and I promise to do my best to always keep that wonderful smile on your face. But more importantly, I promise to love you with all my heart. I love you. | Meagan, You have totally changed my world. When I left home for the Army, I felt empty and lonely inside. I was hoping and praying for someone to come into my life and change that. Then I met you at a picnic lunch at the lake and my life slowly started to change. As we began to talk and text each other, I started to fall in love with you with each and every word. When you flew up to meet me at my parents farm, I knew we were meant to be together forever. I was head over heels in love. I will honor and cherish our time together on earth. I promise to trust you, respect you, laugh and cry with you. I pledge my heart to you through good times and bad regardless of any obstacle we may encounter. I give you all of my strength, all of my weaknesses, all of my heart, from this day forward, for as long as we both shall live.
25: We ask a blessing on this new family. Bless them with years of love and contentment, bless them with children, may they diligently seek you in their marriage, may they truly be a three strand cord. What God has joined together let no man separate.
