I decided to try it for our wedding anniversary... 7/6 (that's June 7th for you northern hemespherians. We do it day-month, not month-day down here)
I wanted a nice one obviously, so I discarded the ones that spoke about descendents being slaves and mistreated (Acts), four headed winged beasts (Daniel), honouring lips but distant hearts (Mark [though convicting]), deceit by friends (Obadiah) and shocking family relations (Micah). And forget a bout Job. Miserable man.
I kid, I kid.
There were a couple which made me stop and think... are they apt for us?
Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet (Matthew)
And when you were eating and drinking, were you not just feasting for yourselves? (Zechariah)
There was a cute one...
How beautiful you are and how pleasing o love, with your delights (Song of Songs)
In the end, I setled on two that I wanted to speak out over my marriage.
Firstly, from Deuteronomy;
For you are a people holy to the Lord your God. The Lord your God has chosen you out of all the peoples on the face of the earth to be His people, His treasured possession
And secondly, from Luke, and probably my favourite for it's simplicity...
So Jesus went with them.
May you always, Lord.
