Do you remember your wedding vows? Wedding vows are arguably the most important aspect of a wedding ceremony. They proclaim the feelings of your heart and the depth of your commitment to both God and your spouse. In most traditional vows, there is a very important phrase that is sometimes overlooked…
“From this day forward”
In just four words, there is a declaration of the transition that is taking place.
From this point in history, we are no longer operating on our own.
From this location, we chose to no longer walk on our own.
In this moment, we are two minds with a single thought, two hearts that beat as one.
This day is the blending of our two lives, the union of our two natures.
June is the time of our annual marriage series, and our focus is not only to embrace the sacred vows we made on our wedding day, but to determine to accept it as a continual challenge. Invite family. Invite friends. Together, we’ll move toward more marital health, “From this day forward.”
