Standing on Holy Ground....



One of the first decisions Whit and JD made was to go barefooted at their wedding.
Exodus 3:5
"Do not come any closer," God said. "Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground."
Whit created a large blackboard for the entry of the wedding which invited everyone to remove their shoes for the wedding. As Whitney walked down the aisle with her daddy, Starla Harbin (our cousin) performed Holy Ground. I knew the Lord was surrounding each one of us at the wedding. Under the Special Touches for our Wedding, Whitney wrote.......

Barefoot - Exodus 3:5 "Then he said, "Do not come near; take your sandals off your feet for the place on which you are standing is Holy Ground."
We believe marriage is a very sacred and holy vow to another and above all to God. As "marriage should be honored by all (Heb.13:4)," we have asked our bridal party and anyone else who would like to partake in this honoring of marriage to remove their shoes... for you are now standing on Holy Ground.
