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.”
