Instead, they are in the emergency room with their 6 year old Ryan. He'll be fine, but has a nasty facial gash from an early-morning bike ride on my driveway. I'm feeling a bit sick about all this.
Then God reminded me that marriage has less to do with weddings and more to do with trips to the emergency room. Those crises are what strengthen and bond a couple so much more than who catches the wedding garter.
Praying for a marriage strengthening anniversary today! Praying for our brave boy Ryan!
UPDATE: Ryan was a brave boy requiring ten stitches. Joanna and Bob left on their get away trusting God and grandma to care for their son. He's doing great and I hear from the Newlyweds of 16 years that they are too!
