A Three-Strand Cord



When Joe and I married, a friend advised us that marriage is like a triangle between husband, wife and God. The closer the couple draw to Him, the closer they will grow to each other. With this thought it mind, I made the three-strand bracelet pictured above for friend Haley whose wedding was Labor Day weekend.



Mary Ashley and Emma were her flower girls, so I used leftover fabric and lace from their dresses to make a little drawstring jewelry bag with Haley's new monogram.



Haley's wedding colors inspired her crystal and glass bead bracelet with Vintag findings (all from A.C. Moore). Smaller single-strand bracelets for the girls coordinated perfectly. Find instructions on making a bracelet here.

"And if one can overpower him who is alone, two can resist him. A cord of three strands is not quickly torn apart" (Ecclesiastes 4:12).

What a beautiful gift! I am sure she will treasure it always. My wedding ring has three stones in it to represent the three stranded cord. We and our marriage is incomplete without the Lord.

Beautiful post and a beautiful bracelet!

I love this! My parents were married for 65 years and their motto was 'each for the other, and both for God.'...
