Two Become One

Last January 9, 2011, we went to the wedding of my cousin. The celebration went good and the preparation took 6 months for them to organized everything. This celebration is the most awaited moment for two people who committed themselves to become one not only in the eyes of the people but most of all in the eyes of God. Marriage is indeed a great unifier. It is a solemn, respectable institution created by God Himself, and it joins together a man and a woman in amazing oneness.

I had a chance to talked with my cousin few days after their wedding day, he told me how they prepared and organized everything to have such a wonderful wedding celebration. The ceremony is a little emotional when the couple exchange their vows, tears fell down in their eyes as they give a short message to each other. I cannot share the whole details here but i am going to post some of the pictures i took during that day.

D. De Haan says if men and women yield to God and of His love partake, the marriage bond that joins two hearts no power on earth can break. Since marriage is a relationship created by God, you need His guidance. You need to share your lives spiritually as well as physically. You need to pray together, to read God's word and worship together. Marriages are not made in heaven, but marriage with the blessing of God makes for a bit of heaven here on earth.

"A man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh." Genesis 2:24

"He who finds a wife finds a good thing, and obtains favor from the Lord." Proverbs 18:22
