"Not Just Any Day"

"Friday, August 30, 2002.

Not just any day.

But the date which has become a milestone in the lives of Zach Dietrich and Leah Wiedemeier.  

Not just any day.  But the day for which the Lord has prepared their lives, bringing them into physical life and rearing them in Christian homes; leading them into eternal salvation through their personal faith in his son, the Lord Jesus Christ; and training them in the truths of his Word.  

Not just any day.  But the day that they have chosen to commit themselves in marriage.

Not just any marriage.  But one committed to honor and lift up the name of Jesus and to serve him all they do and say.  Zach and Leah are so thankful that you have come to share with them on this day and this occasion. 

Not just any day.  But the day the Lord hath made; let us be glad and rejoice in it. 

Not just any day.  August 30, 2002."

Those were the opening words of Pastor Richard Snyder at our wedding ceremony. Happy Anniversary, Leah!
