Weddings

0AFB6CC4-47D2-4488-981B-E30F92C834BA“On the third day there was a wedding at Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. Jesus also was invited to the wedding with his disciples. When the wine ran out, the mother of Jesus said to him, “They have no wine.” And Jesus said to her, “Woman, what does this have to do with me? My hour has not yet come.” His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.” Now there were six stone water jars there for the Jewish rites of purification, each holding twenty or thirty gallons. Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with water.” And they filled them up to the brim. And he said to them, “Now draw some out and take it to the master of the feast.” So they took it. When the master of the feast tasted the water now become wine, and did not know where it came from (though the servants who had drawn the water knew), the master of the feast called the bridegroom and said to him, “Everyone serves the good wine first, and when people have drunk freely, then the poor wine. But you have kept the good wine until now.””
‭‭John‬ ‭2:1-10‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Weddings

As my daughter prepares for her wedding, I reflected upon weddings in general. These ceremonies have lots of common traditions around the world. Most have music, flowers, dancing, fancy dresses, food and drink. They have ignited an entire industry! (Google ‘weddings’) Obviously the most important thing is the union of two people who vow to love each other as long as they live. However, there is much cynicism about marriage among our society that has probably resulted from the high divorce rate and lack of commitment. Recently one young woman told me that many people her age don’t think marriage is necessary because humans are not meant to mate for life—they change and need to change companions to accommodate their needs and desires. Certainly we have become more self centered and feel more independent, despite our ultimate frailty and dependence on so many things. Perhaps weddings themselves have become the main reason for many to want to be married. Seemingly we have become a pleasure driven world.

‭‭Genesis‬ ‭2:24‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Marriage (matrimony, wedlock), is a recognized union between two people, also called spouses, that establishes rights and obligations between them. Throughout history, different cultures and religions have defined their own rules. In our country, marriage rates have been declining, but the most popular month for weddings is June. My daughter does custom wedding paintings (can even do them live) that create keepsakes for years to come.
