Marriage is a commitment ~ a covenant, not a contract.
When we entered into the covenant of marriage, I didn’t know what love was. I didn’t know how selfish I was.
By God’s grace only, here we still stand today.
Here is an excerpt from those lofty vows, voiced that day with a naive glow in my eyes:
“In the midst of this assembly, with all these witnesses and more importantly before Almighty God, I covenant with you. A covenant similar to the one God makes with His people. A covenant which remains constant throughout our lives, despite changes which will occur during our journey together…”
Thank you, Lord, for sustaining our marriage, despite ourselves. Thank you for sending us help and mentors and most of all, for giving us a marriage handbook: your Holy Word.
