We went to the best wedding I think I've ever been to last night. Our pastor was married to another dear friend of ours. My husband had the honor of being a groomsman and I was a server. This couple is so special to us, and obviously so many others. In fact, there wasn't a local church big enough to hold all their loved ones! They were married in a large community center in the heart of Amish country!
The bride and groom wrote their own vows and made a covenant with God and each other to love and serve God and others. Then, they served communion to each guest who wanted to partake. I know God has big plans for their ministry together, and I was deeply moved by the fact that they began this ministry on their wedding day.
The wedding was typical in many ways, and then different in so many others. I think it was the perfect day that the bride has dreamed of all of her life! It was such an honor and a blessing to be a part of this special day. I look forward to seeing God work in the lives of these two who love God, each other, and others so much!
