And the two shall become one....

McKayla & Brian's wedding last weekend. It was gorgeous. Beautiful scenery....even more.... beautiful people!

The Happy Couple!

Why is Rebekah holding the Bride's Bouquet? I guess she is hoping it will bring her some good fortune, since she didn't catch the bridal bouquet when it was thrown! I love Jennilee's expression on her face! Is she kissing??
Almost our whole family was in this wedding. Mark officiated. Rebekah was the Maid of Honor. Jake was the Ring Bearer and I played the keyboard and sang....what fun!
My favorite part of this wedding was when the groom replaced the bride's "purity" ring with the wedding ring. Mac has had that ring since she was about 13 years old, and she presented it to her future husband as part of the wedding ceremony. How save yourselves for your wedding day.....just as God has intended.
I pray for this couple and all our newly married couples, that they will seek the Lord in their marriage. A chord of three strands is not easily broken. The husband is one strand. The wife is another strand; and the Lord is the third strand!! Couples - please commit your marriage to the Lord - with Him, the chord is not easily broken.
I close with some of the words to the song at the wedding: "Love is Not A Fight" (by Warren Barfield.)
Love is a shelter in a raging storm.
Love is peace in the middle of a war.
And if we try to leave, may God send angels to guard the door.
No, love is not a fight....but it's something worth fighting for!
