I love how guest post ideas often fall into my lap! Thanks to my daughter who is still willing to come home and tell me about what she learned at school (well, except for math).

There is not much I am going to say to introduce you to this (video) guest post about the selfless love between two people.

I do dare you to try to watch it without wondering …

what would I do, if I were in her shoes?

If you want to Pray For Ian, just click on the link to that blog. But … pray for Larissa too!

“Marriage is not mainly about prospering economically; it is mainly about displaying the covenant-keeping love between Christ and his church. Knowing Christ is more important than making a living. Treasuring Christ is more important than bearing children. Being united to Christ by faith is a greater source of marital success than perfect sex and double-income prosperity.

If we make secondary things primary, they cease to be secondary and become idolatrous. They have their place. But they are not first, and they are not guaranteed. . . . So it is with marriage. It is a momentary gift. It may last a lifetime, or it may be snatched away on the honeymoon. Either way, it is short. It may have many bright days, or it may be covered with clouds. If we make secondary things primary, we will be embittered at the sorrows we must face. But if we set our face to make of marriage mainly what God designed it to be, no sorrows and no calamities can stand in our way. Every one of them will be, not an obstacle to success, but a way to succeed. The beauty of the covenant-keeping love between Christ and his church shines brightest when nothing but Christ can sustain it.”
John Piper (This Momentary Marriage)
