Lord, You are a glorious God Whose hand has been upon me. You have knit together significant people and refining events to make me the bride I am today. How can I show remembrance and gratitude for all You have done? Whom should I honor at my wedding in order to speak of Your great power in my life? In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Honoring the Deceased

by admin on May 30, 2011 in Family, Purpose, Reception Traditions with No Comments

My favorite way to honor the deceased, however, is to say a word about them from the microphone. My father did this at my wedding as part of his welcome. It set the scene that my wedding was a piece of my husband’s and my family puzzles, puzzles that will hopefully continue to be put together until Christ returns. Giving words to honor the deceased puts a story to a name, giving life through anecdote and description, even to those who never knew the person.
