Read­ing for the fam­ily’s sand cer­e­mony

Bride and Groom - - EDITOR'S LETTER -

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.
