We have three young couples getting married at Grace Community Church this spring. Yes, these are exciting times for our church family!
Saturday morning, the ladies of Grace are having a shower for one young bride-to-be. Yours truly has been asked to prepare and give a devotional for the occasion - a task I find extremely daunting because, even after 27 years, I still haven't quite figured this marriage thing out. Thankfully, I do have the Gospel...and I think I'm beginning to understand that the Gospel is what marriage is all about.
Anyway, I was thinking it might be interesting to have all the ladies at the shower share some of the things they've learned over the years. Each guest could fill out a card with one piece of advice for the bride, and another card with a piece of advice for the groom. We could then bind these cards together and send them home with the guest-of-honor, for her and her sweetie to peruse later. (BTW, this is not an original idea. It was passed to me by a friend.)
Today, I'm asking you, Dear Reader, for your input. What piece of advice would you offer to a young woman as she is preparing to enter married life? What advice would you offer the groom?
