This blog is mostly about images. A photo captures a moment in time and lets us slow down long enough to see the rich texture of the life all around us. It's mostly for my own amusement, but if you stumbled here somehow, please enjoy.

The Union of Hearts

This covenant shall then
Endure and stand forever;
There neither grief nor pain
Shall come to part or sever
There God shall e'er abide
With us our truest friend,
Our hearts in Him unite
Forever without end.
(Zion's Harp #79)

I struggle to express how the melodic strains of this hymn combine with its words to pluck my heart strings.  Perhaps it's the countless times hearing it sung at weddings mixed with the threefold cord knit when Cindy and I joined hands and heart in the Lord.  Simply beautiful.
