Last weekend Richard and I had the privilege of witnessing two dear friends, Mike and Beth, joined together in marriage. They met while bicycling not far from Beth’s house because that’s a passion each has. They love each other and they love Jesus.
They love Jesus and that love gives them a firm foundation to build their relationship and marriage on. They trust Jesus to continue to work in each of them – molding, building, carving, and refining character qualities that will be of use to themselves and others. They believe they can better fulfill the callings God has placed on each of them better together than apart.
They didn’t shy away from learning new ways of forging a God-glorifying relationship. They worked through a pre-marital curriculum, learned communication and conflict resolution skills and marriage coaching skills. They want to do more and better with their marriage. They want to bless God and others through it.
Congratulations, Mike and Beth!
