These were the two goals Steven and Emily had for their wedding; glorify God during the wedding and then hoping everyone has a blast at their reception. Mission accomplished! Emily walked down the isle to the Doxology and then the song we sung was Great is Thy Faithfulness. The minister preached Jesus and the purpose of marriage. John Bailey, Ken's best friend, read scripture. It all glorified God!
The reception was a BLAST!!! The food was wonderful. The toasts were great. The dance floor was packed full the entire time. The groomsmen and the bridesmaids had a dance off that was hysterical! Randy, one of Steven's best friends, danced alone for awhile and was simply amazing and funny. All those on the dance floor knew numerous dances that they all did together. Texas people know how to dance! And it was decent and celebratory dancing. If you didn't see the short twelve minute video capturing the best of the evening, HERE it is again. It was a beautiful, amazing evening.
Weddings should be great times of celebrations! Two lives are joining into one and a whole new generation is being created. Jesus' first miracle was at a wedding, changing water into wine. It shows to us the importance He places on weddings and marriage for someday all of us will be eating together at the great feast in heaven when Christ is united once and for all with His bride, the church, us!
Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him:
for the marriage of the Lamb is come,
and his wife hath made herself ready.
