~Family Rose Ceremony~

The blending of a family is a complex thing.  Each person has unique characteristics, and it is those things that make us fall in love with them.  We would never want their personality to be lost or altered. But sometimes our individuality presents challenges as it merges with the individual personalities of others.  So how can five completely different people make one complete family?  There can be only one answer: LOVE.  
   The red rose is a symbol of love.  Each of you holds a red rose.  When you look at the rose, you can first of all know that God loves you.  Just as he carefully made the rose you hold, He carefully made you.  He created you to be the special person you are.  Each rose is beautiful by itself, but when all the roses are put together they become an exquisite bouquet.


   Today, as you each put your rose into the vase, you are showing your family and friends, and each other, how very much you want to be more than just your own person.  You are showing that you choose to put your lives together to be the family God designed you to be.

I got goose bumps reading this and looking at the photo. I did a rose ceremony with just me and my hubby. So beautiful the whole family was included!! This is just a priceless moment.

Okay, I'm being totally emo today.  Forgive me!  But this just made me tear up...lol
