The bride and groom emptied their jars of sand together into the middle jar. Now their old separate lives were gone. No one could tell from which jar any grain had come. Pastor Rocky pronounced David and Charissa Gray husband and wife.

“Newlyweds forever” by God’s resurrection power, Jim and I purposed for our marriage in August, 1998. We prayed for each of our four children also to know the joy of vibrant wedded love, and now those prayers are answered.

As Easter people we rejoice with Jesus: “His purpose was to create in himself one new humanity out of the two…” (Ephesians 2:15). With each new dawn we can be “made new in attitude… put on the new self, created to be like God…” (Ephesians 4:23, 24).

Hooray for new energy, new life, a new awareness and orientation! Yay for new indivisible, unconditional love bonds creating new traditions, ceremonies, households, families!
