'A couple celebrating their wedding anniversary actually offer a stronger picture of God's love than a couple getting married. The essence of faithfulness is that it holds steady in the face of alternatives. Faithfulness is nurtured, tested and, in the end, strengthened by temptations. The wife and husband who remain faithful to each other - for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health - not only bear testimony to the kind of love God has for us, but they put it on display.'
