What could be better than two people being in love? As Sheldon Vanauken found out, having that love transformed into something even better by God. As Vanauken explains in his book A Severe Mercy, he and his wife, Davy, had an amazing relationship by worldly standards. However, God got in the middle of it and took it to a whole new level, although not in the way you might expect. I write about the nature of Van and Davy’s love and how it was fulfilled by God in this paper.
