Wedding Poetry

Two planks of wood come together
Forming a cross where the God of all creation
Gives up His life for His bride
So that all may know life.

A man and a woman come together
At an altar before the God who died on the cross
There they give up their lives for each other
So that all may know Him.

I had this idea for a poem a few days ago. Thinking about the similarity of the cross and marriage. With the cross two pieces form one structure and in marriage two people become one. At both the cross and marriage there is a dying involved, but also in both life may be found. In the cross we are crucified with Christ so that we might have new life. Marriage shows two people dying to self that Christ may be all the more glorified.

In the past when I wrote poetry I would usually write lots in spurts. Who knows, this might be the first of many more to come.

Reason 29 why I am excited to marry Laura:

She is patient loves kids. By the way she interacts with her nieces and nephews I know she will make a great mom!
