A Marriage Without Obstacles

He didn't call to say he was going to be late.

She's been saying she has a headache again.

He won't lead spiritually.

She is nagging about everything.

Does your marriage have obstacles? Do you pray for unity and peace only to encounter more selfishness and pride in your relationship? Do you wish your marriage was more Christ-like? Here is the story of a couple who is an example of the purest form of love in a marriage--a marriage with major obstacles, but one in which Christ's love is being demonstrated in greater ways than you can imagine. Perhaps their journey will inspire us to greater heights of selflessness in our homes.

Thanks for sharing. It's easy to lose focus but so many stories like these remind me of truly blessed I am and how easily I forget to be thankful.

Dear me...a car accident? So sorry to have read that! So glad that it was with minimal pain. :/

I came across Larissa and Ian's story just last week. Oh how incredible it is!! Brought me to tears. How Great our Wonderful LORD is! What a joy to witness their faith in HIM through this trial.

Love to you!
