"So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in Him, rooted, and built up in Him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and over-flowing with thankfulness"
These words were read at our niece's wedding. The minister spoke on the importance of roots for a plant and the importance of us being rooted in Christ- both in our personal lives and in our marriages!
"Over-flowing with thankfulness"...
