The Wedding Dance

"I know that the angels in heaven stand amazed at how much a man can love a woman, how he can break down weeping at the thought of how precious she is to him.  The reason he loves her so is because she IS precious.  She has earned his total adoration and love.  She is what God asks of a woman, and the end result is a man who cherishes her beyond anything this world can know."  (Debi Pearl)

Jon, my son-in-law, is a manly man.  He's never seen his dad cry.  He believes men should be masculine and takes seriously this role that God has given him.  However, when he saw Alyssa walking down the aisle toward him to become his wife, he wept.  He cherishes her.

Alyssa has learned what God expects of a wife~

They have never argued.  

She loves him just the way that he is.  There is nothing she wants to change about him.  

She loves taking care of him and pleasing him.  

She lets him be the leader of their home.  

She is submissive to him.  

She is doing it right, because she has been taught how to and has seen other married couples who do it right.  God's ways are best.  Our society does it completely opposite the way God tells us to do it.  Is it working?  No!  Marriages are falling apart left and right. 

God knows what he is doing.  He is our Creator and wrote the instruction manual for how we are to live our lives.  Try it...You will love it!

Here is a link to the dance they did at their wedding...Alyssa is a professional ballerina and taught Jon this dance secretly to surprise all of us! Jon and Alyssa's Wedding Dance

Likewise you husbands, live considerately with your wives, bestowing honor on the woman as the weaker sex, since you are joint heirs of the grace of life, in order that your prayers may not be hindered. I Peter 3:7
