Entwined In Christ

What a blessed thing is the marriage of two believers, of one hope, one discipline, servants of the same Master! together they offer up their prayers - together they lie in the dust, and keep their fasts, teaching each other, exhorting each other, bearing up each other. They are together in God's Church, together at God's fest, together in straits, persecutions, consolations; freely the sick are visited and the indigent supported; there are alms without trouble; sacrifices without scruple; daily unimpeded diligence. Christ sees it and rejoices. ~ Tertullian
