A covenant is more than a contract. It does not protect our interests, as a contract does. It surrenders them. You come here to surrender yourself to the interests of each other, and you do this by making an oath. There is no mingling of blood, but a mingling of purpose as God himself makes you one flesh.

The relationship between gratitude and well-being is simple to understand but difficult to apply.
We have a lot yet to learn. But we are determined to learn it, and to extend grace with calmness and certitude in our final hours.
