Marriage is not necessarily a topic I can talk or write about. But it doesn’t mean I shouldn’t learn about it. Over the last few years I have studied a few foundational principles on the sacrament of marriage through the-life-business informational packs, audios and books. I have also been blessed to watch LIFE founders George and Jill Guzzardo, Orrin and Laurie Woodward, Chris and Terri Brady, Claude and Lana Hamilton, Dan and Lisa Hawkins and Bill and Jackie Lewis be true examples of what a relationship looks like when bonded through marriage.
I recently stumbled across this video and I knew God was telling me to share it. The story of Ian and Larissa absolutely gives the perfect example of unconditional love and commitment when it comes to marriage.
“Ian and I had planned to get married as soon as we graduated from college in December of 2006. But instead, everything was halted with his brain injury, which he received on September 30 of that year in a car accident. And so instead of getting married when we were young and healthy and naive, we waited four years and got married when he was sick and disabled and we were still grieving…” Please watch the 8 minute video to hear their story and be inspired – The Story of Ian and Larissa
“Therefore a man will leave his father and his mother, and will cling to his wife: and they will be one flesh.” Genesis 2:24
I pray that God gives me the grace to love someone like Larissa loves Ian. Let Him be the author and the sustainer of our lives.
