Max Lucado & Fixer Upper

I was in the middle of binge-watching HGTV's Fixer Upper when Joanna Gaines mentioned to Chip that the lady client, Sarah Jones, happen to be Max Lucado's daughter.  Happy Birthday to author, Max Lucado (born January 11, 1955).

Mr Lucado performed Sarah's wedding to Jeff Jones in year 2014 and wanted the Gaines to include words in a prayer to God that he had written which were part of their wedding service.


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.
by Max Lucado
The Gaines came through with the request.  See how they did it in the episode called:  "A Young Couple Hopes for a House With Old World Charm" (Season 3, Episode 9).
