Daily Lenten Meditation

Each day in Lent, I post a meditation from one of our parishioners. Their names are not listed to protect their privacy

Lessons for the Day:  Exodus 7:8-24;  2 Corinthians 2:14-3:6;  Mark 10:1-16

Weddings are fun to attend.  Everyone dresses nice and there is lots of food later on… especially cake!  It is happy occasion because marriage is a gift from God.

Marriage is more than a gift however.  It is a promise.  Sometimes people don’t realize it is much more than them making a promise to each other to always be faithful and there for each other.  The bride and groom are also making a promise to God to live their marriage as he wants them to, and to their future children that they will be there for them and always be a family.
