Reading for the family’s sand ceremony
The gathering of this new family will have a deep influence upon them. We realise that in order for the home to be a happy one, it is essential that there be love and understanding between the children and the adults being married. As you each hold your sand, the separate containers of sand represent your lives to this moment; individual and unique. As you now combine your sand together, your lives also join together as one. Just as these grains of sand can never be separated and poured together in individual containers, so will your marriage and family be.
