When I see the picture above, I am reminded of the gift that God has given us through the bond of marriage, the way He intended. He brings two people together to glorify Him, the purpose of the union is to better serve Him and raise children in the admonition of the Lord (Eph 6:4). I loved shooting Ryan & Ariel’s wedding because I knew their story of patience, waiting and sacrifice, what an encouragement these two young people are to me and I’m sure to many others!
Love is so important in our lives, it is manifested in so many ways, we were made to be loved and to love others and yet we fall short so many times of giving it and allowing others to love us properly. This morning I think of the love that God has for us, in sending His only begotten Son as a sacrifice for us, undeserving as we are, then His on going love as he reassures us of through His word and prayer; as we make our request known to Him and He answers us, what Love! God is love (1 John 4:16)
