The song that most comes to mind at weddings is Wherever You Go, by David Haas [one of my favorite contemporary liturgical composers]. It really hits home about the marriage 'contract' of "Wherever you go, I will go, Your people will be my people. Wherever you lie, I'll lie there beside you, Wherever you go, I'll be there."
Here is a rendition of it that is pretty good, but the singers seem a little nervous. Shut your eyes so you won't be distracted by the movement and you will get the jist of it. Play it a couple of times and listen carefully to the pact in the making.
Why I think of this tonight is, our little Jacob is in the hospital and had surgery today. I think about his folks who take turns staying with him, praying, and hoping for a healthy outcome. In the course of marriage, if you think everyday about the ties that bind you, and the serious events that could break you, it never hurts to dust off the old commitment promise and give it a re-run.
One of my sister's heifer's calved tonight in West Virginia. Last I heard, they were trying to get the baby to stand. The sex has yet to be determined, but the name in play was Raven. Being that it's feast of St. Blase, (the patron saint of throats), I think it should be Blazin Raven. Good thing it's not the feast of St. Francis(co).
