~*~The Wedding~*~

First off we have to express how very happy and excited we are  for this wonderful couple.  We are beyond happy that through all life’s little ups and downs,  Jason has  found the one who completes his other half  and has found a help meet in Abigail.  They just complete each other.

The wedding was beautiful.  Simple.  Beautiful but simple. Love filled.   Beyond description.

We can say though that Jason has never looked so anxious and that Abigail was stunningly beautiful.

I’m afraid my little camera just doesn’t do them service but I wanted to share the couple of photo’s I did take.  I’m sure they will have some great ones to share later.

At the table.

Gen 2:18 ESV – Then the LORD God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.”

Gen 2:19 ESV – Now out of the ground the LORD God had formed every beast of the field and every bird of the heavens and brought them to the man to see what he would call them. And whatever the man called every living creature, that was its name.

Gen 2:20 ESV – The man gave names to all livestock and to the birds of the heavens and to every beast of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper fit for him.

Gen 2:21 ESV – So the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh.

Gen 2:22 ESV – And the rib that the LORD God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man.

Gen 2:23 ESV – Then the man said, “This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.”

Gen 2:24 ESV – Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.

1Cr 13:4 ESV – Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant

1Cr 13:5 ESV – or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;

1Cr 13:6 ESV – it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.

1Cr 13:7 ESV – Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

1Cr 13:8 ESV – Love never ends…

Today's your special day-
 the start of both your lives, together.
 May it be special in every way
 sparked by the love you've treasured
 and may all the love you're feeling
 still find a way to grow,
 sharing joys which have a meaning
 that only both of you could know. 

 May God bless your health
 as you care for each other's needs,
 may you both share in the wealth
 of raising a family,
 may your new dreams never end-
 we hope they all come true,
 and may you always be two friends
 who have your love, each day, be new. 

 Again, today is your day,
 with the bond between you strong.
 God has shown both of you the way
 and placed his love where it belongs
 and as you hold on to each other
 always keeping your love dear,
 know you're blessed both by the Father
 and each one of us who's here. 

 Today two friends start a journey
 walking hand in hand, as one
 they'll share everything, always
 now that their journey has begun
 and as they go on together,
 blessed by me and you,
 may these two friends always treasure
 the day they said, "I do
