I went to the wedding of my dear friend Karen this weekend. I think my favorite part was the rehearsal dinner, though. They opened the floor for any friend or family member to tell stories/give advice/say a toast. I was blown away by what people said about the couple. Not only did it make me appreciate the friendship I have with Karen and her now-husband, Tim but it also made me realize the importance of community in any relationship. This weekend got me thinking about marriage: biblical marriage, cultural beliefs about marriage, and God’s love of marriage.
So, naturally, I’ve had Sanctus Real’s song ‘Lead Me’ in my head ever since. This song captures the reliance of a wife on her husband as well as the irreplaceable role of God in that union.
