this isn't actually a Christmas card but a wedding card we received

Believe . . .

believe that God loves us enough to send His Son to us, to be like us and among us

Emmanuel, God with us

believe that Christ loves us enough to be sent

to leave His Father, His home, to come here to live among us

and die by our hands

believe in marriage

believe that it can happen even when you haven't had a date in months


believe when we see marriages falling apart around us

when the day is hard

when we don't agree with our spouse

believe in marriage

believe that the God who loves us enough to send His Son here to live among us, loves us enough to help us through, to help us learn better how to love like He does, to learn how to live out day after day in covenant relationship with another as He does with us

believe that the God who loves us this much also hurts with us when people choose not to accept His help and turn away from their marriages and believe that He stands by those left behind and loves them through the heartache
