Those wild promises made before God


Marriages that are dependent on good feelings fall apart, or at best are in for a stormy time of it.  But marriages that consistently look back to their vows, to those wild promises made before God, and that trust Him to make sense out of them, find a continual source of strength and renewal.

Mike Mason, The Mystery of Marriage.

As so often with Mike Mason, no commentary is needed.  His chapter in this book on the vows of marriage is outstanding.  You can read some of it on Google books if you want to see why you should buy this book.  (And, no, he doesn’t pay me commission – I just really love his work!)
