There was joy in heaven, I suggested in today's wedding sermon, as Tim and Sharon made their marriage vows to each other.
Joy in heaven? Because that was the way God planned it from the beginning: a man to leave his father and mother and to be united to his wife and become on flesh (Genesis 2.24).
That unique relationship is wonderfully encapsulated in the marriage vows Tim and Sharon made to each other today: to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health...
God bless you, Sharon and Tim, today and for the rest of your life together.
