~Our Renewals~ Hey my WBC family! I've been a little hush- hush lately. Our 14th wedding ann...
For our unity ceremony we wanted to find something that was special and would incorporate God since he has blessed us so much and he is the center our relationship, our lives, and soon...OUR MARRIAGE!
We both decided on God's Knot- The Cord of the 3 Strands. We love the symbolism of it and we haven't seen it done at any other wedding that we have been to.
Here is the information our Pastor will read at the ceremony:
The braiding of the three stands demonstrates how [Andrew] and [Kayla] are joined by God in marriage. Each strand holds a special meaning.
The Gold Strand symbolizes that the Lord Jesus has been invited by [Andrew] and [Kayla] to the position of authority in this marriage.
The Purple Strand represents the groom. As a new creation in Christ, the majesty of the Groom is represented in purple. As [Andrew] loves his wife and submits himself to the Lord, the Lord in turn will demonstrate His great love in the marriage.
The White Strand represents the bride. Having been cleansed by salvation in Christ, the purity of the Bride is represented in white. As [Kayla] honors her husband and submits herself to the Lord, the Lord in turn will nurture and strengthen the marriage.
Ecclesiastes 4:12 reads, Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
Matthew 19: 5-6 says, "For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be untied to his wife, and the two will become one flesh. So, they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate."
Today, [Andrew] and [Kayla] have been woven together by God as ONE in marriage!
*We also love the fact the it incorporates 2 of our wedding colors*
