Sample Vows: Marc and Julie

by admin on July 4, 2013 in Vows with No Comments

From this moment on I have two main purposes for my life: To serve the LORD Jesus Christ with all my heart, soul, mind, and strength, and to present you to him at the end of your life without stain, wrinkle, or blemish.  To accomplish this I promise to pray with you daily, to surrender my life and my selfishness to you more and more everyday, to listen and really understand what you are saying, to fill your life with fun and excitement, to work hard to provide everything you need, and to never leave you.  All these are impossible without the help of God.  With his guidance, your life will be extraordinary.  To have you as my wife is a blessing beyond measure.  I am honored to be your husband

Destination weddings have become a hot market, which serves you because of all the resources that are now available to you online.

Heavenly Father, all the goodness in me is a gift from You.  There is nothing righteous in me apart from You, so I thank You for Your grace and for Your Spirit Who transforms my heart.  Strengthen me to be a light in my home so that my words, thoughts, and deeds will always be those that reflect You.  May that integrity of heart greatly bless my husband and family.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.

The simplest concept for solvent money management is to spend less than you earn. So to make an effective wedding budget, you will need to know how much money you have to spend.

Thought for the Week: Psalm 103: 10-12

Heavenly Father, You are the source of true peace, love, and forgiveness. Because You are all-powerful, I know that You can forgive my husband through me even when I am too weak to do so. Let the sun never go down on my anger, and help my husband and I to work through our sin, hurt, and anger with the very grace and mercy that You have given each of us. Teach us how to love like You love. Thank You, Lord! In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Joe and Josephine

by admin on June 20, 2013 in Reception Traditions with No Comments

The crowd went wild, following Joe and Josephine’s lead at cheering for the bride and groom. I don’t know how they got the two bears there, but I suppose there is always someone who knows someone who is the mascot.

There was nothing more perfect for this particular couple’s wedding celebration than bringing in two beloved symbols of cheer and victory from the couple’s mutual past (and it definitely beat shirtless guests with the bride and groom’s initial painted on their chests in blue and gold body paint).

Lord, my life is but a blip compared to eternity. Give me an eternal perspective in my marriage so that I could endure the dark times and always find worth in my daily sacrifice. Help me to live with a wise heart that cherishes each moment of my life as an opportunity to know You better and to share You with others, especially in my marriage. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Receiving the Vows

by admin on June 13, 2013 in Relationship, Rings, Vows with No Comments

Receiving love from someone, even in moments when you don’t want to, is a strong statement of trust, humility, and gratitude. Receiving your spouse’s promise to love faithfully, especially in moments where you might not clearly see it acted on, is an even stronger statement of faith in God to uphold the promise in all circumstances.

With both the wedding vows and the ring vows, consider taking the time in your ceremony to acknowledge and receive the commitment your spouse is making to you. You can add a spoken acknowledgment that your guests can hear or you can make it a private look in each other’s eyes or a squeeze of your hands that is just between the two of you in order to say, “Yes, I receive your promise for our marriage.”

Marriage from Prayer, Letter 3

One of my favorite things about you is that you put Christ before everything.  You pray for me and I hear the words my heart longs to receive.  Your voice is the instrument of our Lord.  Such sweet breath.  Such lovely words.  I am amazed that you, being so sweet and lovely, have chosen me to be your husband.  How grateful I am.  How wonderful you are.  How beautiful.  How excellent.

Thought for the Week: Psalm 90:17

by admin on June 9, 2013 in Purpose, Thought for the Week with No Comments

Jesus, You are more glorious than I could ever imagine. Your sovereignty reaches beyond where I can see. Your wisdom is more profound than I could ever comprehend. Forgive me for knowing all that yet keeping control to myself. I desire to control the process, and I desire credit for the results I yield. But I know in my heart, my control barely scratches the surface of Your purpose. Help me to do Kingdom work in my wedding planning, that all of my efforts would be for You, and help me to release the details to You so that You might perfect my efforts for Your glory. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
