Wedding Day: September 20, 2013

Gen 1:26  Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth."
Gen 1:27  God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
Gen 1:28  God blessed them; and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth."

Gen 2:18  Then the LORD God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him.
Gen 2:19  Out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the sky, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them; and whatever the man called a living creature, that was its name.
Gen 2:20  The man gave names to all the cattle, and to the birds of the sky, and to every beast of the field, but for Adam there was not found a helper suitable for him.
Gen 2:21  So the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; then He took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh at that place.
Gen 2:22  The LORD God fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man. 
Gen 2:23  The man said, "This is now bone of my bones, And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man." 
Gen 2:24  For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh. 
Gen 2:25  And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.

Gen 1:31  God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.

Pro 31:10  An excellent wife, who can find? For her worth is far above jewels. 11  The heart of her husband trusts in her, And he will have no lack of gain. 12  She does him good and not evil All the days of her life.

Today our eldest daughter is getting married. We are so blessed to see the Lord's work in her life and how He was so gracious to answer this mother's prayer since she was a little girl: that God would save and keep pure her future husband and that he would be from among our church.

And He has.

I stand amazed and humbled at God's goodness.
