There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens
It was our families season for new beginnings. On March 25th God put together a union that not only represents Christ’s love of the church but is also a testement to God’s divine providence. God indeed worked it together for good. This isn’t just about a marriage but it is about the blessing of a family. Marriage is intended to be a living example of Christ’s relationship with the church. It is to be a picture to our children that uncovers the mysteries of sacrificial love and honor and commitment.
My kids are Hamaker’s and this marriage doesn’t take away from that fact, it adds to it. There is peace where there has been instability, there is joy where there once was sorrow and there is hope where hoplessness dwelled. This day is the beginning of all things new. This day we begin a living testemony to Christs love and a tangible reflection for my children to learn from and guide them.
And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” (Revelation 21:5)
It was important for me to create a moment for my children to experience being part of God working the brokenness they’ve experienced into something good. It was important to me that they have something they can take away from this day knowing that they are loved beyond beleif and that God had indeed blessed them!
All 4 of us have one of these. It says "God worked it togehter for good" and there are two pennies on each keyring. One penny with the year of our birth and one for the year we became a family. The day my children were born is precious to me and its precious to my wonderful husband. He loves them and knows he is called to them, you can read a little bit about that calling under the post “How redemption came”.
We will forever profess that God's word is true and we will remember “God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28
All praise to Him who has called us to such a time as this!
