David is my late-thirties grandson who has made life an adventure. In the mix he has met some very nice girls but no one really KO’d him until Oriana. She won my heart quickly also. The marriage took place in David’s house where they will be living. The minister is my son, Carl, David’s father.

This was my message to them:

Oriana, I’m David’s grandmother. You see, I am the old lady in the family into which you are marrying. I am the one you can tattle to. I hope you will grow to love me. I am sure I will love you. I love most near everybody, even if they are not loveable. I hear that you are easy to love. If you ever have a problem, message me with a “Grandma, I need prayer.” I promise to tell the Lord I’m needing him to help Oriana with what ever she is needing.

David, a short word to you. If you ever treat Oriana with any disrespect, I’ll tell the Lord on you! Always remember she is the daughter of the King who has trusted her into your kind hands.

Welcome to marriage. The making of the “two in one.” With this commitment you become two in one in the same sense that the Creator God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit are three in one. Each of you fulfills a function you can never do my yourself, yet each of you has a responsibility to fully function on your own. Isn’t that amazing! Neither of you cease to be you. You are two ones who can only be complete when you are each one, one.

Let the Lord God be your third, then you can be three in one as your marriage is blessed with joy and happiness, and patience and forgiveness, ability to jump the hurdles, and strength to soar the skies.

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    “It is not your love that sustains the marriage, but from now on, the marriage that sustains your love.” Dietrich Bonhoeffer, writing to a young bride and groom from his prison cell in Nazi Germany in 1943.

      I love that quote. I’ve never heard of it. Hope it snuggles “up front” in my memory bank and doesn’t get lost in the trivia. That is one reason that “Certificate of Marriage” is vital to a couple in love. Without marriage and commitment to it, a parting of the ways is much to easy. But I do believe there is always the “two become one” even if things go south and divorce occurs. The experience and the memory, maybe even the misery will endure.

    May t he LORD GOD indeed honour, bless and sustain this union as you, Oneta continue to prayerfully remember them both. a-men.

  7. Ahhh, congratulations! Thanks for sharing the celebration with the rest of us. 🙂

      Thanks much, I.B. You light up my blogging world. Maybe I can revisit with a one year report. – They do plan to have a more extravagant wedding next year. For celebrating with a larger group. Oriana’s extended family are from Venezuela so I think they are going to do the “biggie” in Florida.

    What beautiful words to them! Love how you tell your granddaughter to just say “Grandma I need prayer” Prayers is by far the greatest gift you can give them! ❤❤

  9. This is a beautiful example of building up the generations and leaving a legacy to your children and children’s children. I am so glad you have been there to influence their love stories.

  10. Beautiful ❤ congratulations
