Wedding puzzle

Jane’s cousin, Douglas Gilmour, is getting married to Rachel Dowsett in Shropshire tomorrow (05 November). Jane is currently getting ready to go; sadly, I’m staying home as we have an important meeting at St Salvador’s on Sunday morning.

Each guest has been sent a piece of a jigsaw puzzle and invited to attach a photograph and message to it, and bring the puzzle piece to the wedding reception. I suspect that it symbolically represents that we’re all pieces of their lives.

We’ve just got round to adding a photo (above) to our piece, which is actually a composite of two photographs taken last month at Lady’s Tower, Elie in Fife. Even though I’ll not be there in person I’ll be reaching out to them in prayer. (See, they’re not the only people who can do symbolic! hehe)

On the reverse there’s a label for a personalized message. Ours reads:

Remember, remember …
marriage is for life,
not just November!

lots of love,
Jane x + Gareth x

I’m sorry I’ll not be there. Hope you have a great time, Douglas and Rachel, and a wonderful new life in Chile. (Read about their news on the Gilmours’ website.)
