I would like to share a beautiful picture of marriage and family that Edith Schaeffer devised in the 1960’s. Her metaphor is so evocative of the reality, it has continued to bless and encourage me throughout my married life. Mrs. Schaeffer envisions marriage as a work of art, specifically a mobile - - always in motion, rarely still, changing, shifting, moved by the slightest current to reflect light or enter shadow. Like a mobile, your marriage is a different artistic expression by the moment. You, your spouse, and the Lord are the artists, collaborating together, to create this work of art, while even more wonderfully, you are the art. What could be more astonishing?
