|Thirty-six years later.|
I DuckDuckGo'd some verses about marriage and all the usual suspects popped up- the tried and so, so true verses we love to hear at weddings. But here are two that I haven't heard at weddings, and it was love at first sight:
Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: If one falls down, his friend can help him up... Ephesians 4:9-10
And I will betroth* you to me forever. I will betroth you to me in righteousness and in justice, in steadfast love and in mercy. Hosea 2:19
Swoon. Doesn't it just make you want to get married? Or get married all over again? Or go to a wedding? Or start a wedding board on Pinterest even though you tied the knot ten years ago? Just me? Anyway, the good news is, Valentine's Day is just around the corner. If you're looking for something a little more unique than "Roses are red, Violets are blue...." may I suggest turning to your Bible for the perfect words of adoration.
*The Living Bible translation uses "bind," which I love even more.
