Marriage: A Holy Union

This past week we traveled to my sister's wedding.  I was so grateful that all went well...traveling with a 34 week pregnant momma and two young children was an adventure for Jon.  It was such a great time of visiting with family since we did not travel at Christmas.  While watching everyone scurry around to prepare for the ceremony and wedding, I had the chance to reflect on marriage and what a unique God-given blessing it is.  One man and one woman brought together and bound with inexplicable bonds of marriage.  Genesis 2:24 says "Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh."
Jon and I don't fit in with today's society of easily dissolved and discarded marriages because we believe that marriage is forever, like the vows say 'until death do we part'.  After five years, we've weathered many ups and downs that could have torn us apart but instead God used to draw us closer together.  My prayer for Sandi and Kyle is that they will allow God to draw them so close that no one and nothing can come in between them and that they will be united as one through their individual pursuit of Christ as the head of their marriage.
