Recently on Fixer Upper, Chip and Joanna remodelled a home for author Max Lucado’s daughter, Sara, and her husband Jeff. As part of the beautiful re-do, Jo incorporated a poem Max wrote and shared during Sara and Jeff’s wedding ceremony.
It seemed good and right to remind us of the relationship between the renovation of a home and the renovation of lives in marriage. Therefore, let us pray:
“Would You take these two of dust and bone,
born of flesh, then You, would You make them ONE?
Would You speak again the words You spoke
when Adam slept and Eve awoke?
Would You let Your wine replace our water
and look with grace on this son, this daughter?
Oh Lord of Eden, in Your majesty, create again Your tapestry:
ONE heart where there were two.
This is the prayer we lift to you.”
