From Jim’s Heart—Remember Your Wedding

Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her…
Ephesians 5:25

To be honest, I can’t remember much about my wedding or what was said during the ceremony—it’s all a blur in my mind. I do, however, remember coming into the church from a side entrance with the minister and my best man. There I stood, in front of all those people, waiting for my bride-to-be… with a beet-red face! No, I wasn’t embarrassed or suffering from an attack of hives. I was sunburned from water-skiing all day with my buddies from the wedding party. The wedding started at 8:00 p.m., and it must have been an extremely short ceremony because in our after-wedding pictures of Elizabeth’s and my hands with our new wedding rings, my watch reads 8:20 p.m.!

Now let’s put you on the hot spot. What about you and your wedding? In the months or years since that day, have you thought back on the vows you made to your bride? Our wedding day is one of the most important occasions in our life. What we say at that ceremony affects us for the rest of our lives.

Just for today think about what you can do–today and every day in the future–to truly fulfill the vows you made to your bride—whether those vows were made yesterday, last week, last year, or in my case, decades ago.
