Sarah and Pete got married last night. Everything went very well, especially considering it all got planned in 6 weeks time! They have such great friends and family, that came from everywhere to take part and help-it was awesome. The ceremony may have been the shortest ceremony I have ever seen. I tried to slow it up with my scripture reading, but to no avail. Here was my reading:
- Greetings: “It’s an honor to be here tonight and to be able to be a part of Sarah and Pete’s wedding ceremony. Life is good.
- Back story: “4 Weeks ago I laid in bed thinking about this night. And I
couldn’t figure out which scripture to read. As Ilay there thinking about it,
one verse kept coming to meover and over again. Initially it didn’t make any sense,
but it was in my head for a reason, so I thought I should read it to you.”
- John 3:16
- “Not your typical verse you would hear at a wedding ceremony. But within the verse I think there are some great examples of what a married relationship should be based on. Let me read it to you again and see what you think.”
For God loved the world so much= All encompassing Love
That he gave his one and only Son= +Sacrifice
So that everyone who believes in Him= +Faith
Will not perish but have eternal Life= A Wedding Gift all wrapped up in the Gift of eternal life.
It was a great night and somehow I managed to feel pretty good and make it through. Thank you for all your prayers. Here are a few snapshots from the big night:
