The First Wedding

This was the first account of the first wedding. Genesis 2:18-25
(thanks to google.com for this illustration of the first wedding couple, Adam and Eve)

New International Version

"The LORD God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him." Now the LORD God had formed out of the ground all the beasts of the field and all the birds of the air. He brought them to the man to see what he would name them; and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name. So the man gave names to all the livestock, the birds of the air and all the beasts of the field.
But for Adam no suitable helper was found. So the LORD God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man's ribs and closed up the place with flesh. Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.

The man said, 

       "This is now bone of my bones
       and flesh of my flesh;
       she shall be called 'woman,'
       for she was taken out of man."

For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.

The man and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame."

Some Lessons To Learn:

Notice what God provided Adam for his wife: a helper suitable for him. I like the New Living Translation and The Message Translation have to say: 

"Then the Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him.." (New Living Translation)
 - a helper just right for him...wow!  

Here's what The Message Translation has to say:
"God said, "It's not good for the Man to be alone; I'll make him a helper, a companion." 

First three questions i've learned from verse 19  before one gets married :

1) Is the person you're going to marry God's will for your life?
2) Do you think that person is suitable for you, a helper just right for you?
3) Do you enjoy his/her companionship? Do you enjoy his/her companionship more than anybody else's? 

This is just a "taste" of the things i'll share here. Exciting to learn before you get married, isnt it? "Standby" for more posts . I'll post more biblical and practical perspectives (including the budget for every wedding need, etc.)

Wedding...Every Woman's Dream

This was the first photo i took when i passed by a wedding fair years ago. I entitled this photo as Wedding...Every Woman's Dream.

Be honest women! We women dream of a beautiful or memorable wedding, if not grand wedding.

Its been in my heart to start another blogsite aside from what i already have, http://woman-with-a-mission.blogspot.com/

My friend encouraged me to start another blogsite about fashion.Fashion is also one of my passions but wedding is really a strong subject in my heart and since i'm the family event planner, organizer, scriptwriter, host...name it  and i did it  ( but of course with limitations:), so i prioritized tackling this subject. In this subject i would like to help or at least contribute to your plans for your dream wedding. So here it is, http://WeddingDreamsAndReality.blogspot.com.

Why Dreams and Reality?

Dreams-according to free dictionary is a wild fancy or hope; a condition or achievement that is longed for; an aspiration. 

Every woman longs for a beautiful wedding. On this blogsite, i will share many things about weddings which im going to research about...from wedding dress to reception....and all those wedding essentials.

Reality- because we need to realize that in reality, we don't just think of the wedding per se but the family we're going to enter after the ceremony, the things that are in involved before and after wedding and also the marriage life, etc. Here, i will post things that will talk about life before or after one's wedding with the help of the experienced people and other writers.

I'm so excited about this new blogsite.I don't have any experience with the wedding yet.I'm still "a girl waiting" but one of my dreams or longings is to have a memorable and beautiful one.Something that i am asking God for a gift in my life. After all, God will not withhold any good thing from his children. My ex-boyfriend said, " you deserve a beautiful wedding...a wedding that people in your country will talk about." Wow...amen to that (so be it). I consider that statement later as a prayer and of course, that God will be glorified on my wedding day and later on in my marriage life because He is the giver of good gifts.

Wedding dreams and reality...something that really excites me about. They say that when you help fulfill other people's dreams, God will fulfill yours. So here it is, i just want to help you fulfill your memorable and beautiful dream wedding and later on, enjoy and share mine too, in God's time. "Stay tune" for more updates:)
