Marriage and Sewing Freebies
First my HAPPY news!
My son Darren is officially engaged to his girlfriend Angela! He proposed to her in Port Hardy! So congratulations Darren and Angela! May you be blessed with a long and happy marriage, and may your "hoose" be blessed! Love ya longtime!! :)
Now for the images:
When two people get married, it can be symbolized by two pieces of fabric coming together to be made into one. First we need something to attach the two. This old sewing machine is like a marital contract. It's solid, well designed, and binding.
Even so, love can feel like it's coming unraveled, and we need something to hold things together so that we can work it out. These pins symbolize forgiveness....because marriages require a lot of stubborn forgiveness without which marriages often fall apart.
It helps to look at all issues from not just yours, but your mates point of view as well! This requires tenderheartedness - worth its weight in gold!
What helps make a marriage work?
An unconditional love that binds
Seeing things from both points of view
Putting each other first
Gods grace and mercy to cover you and your marriage.
If you can do this, it will enrich your marriage and make it fun, full and rewarding!
Hopefully this will make up for my absence! Sure hope these will come in handy!
