What does love between a husband and wife really look like?

November 06, 2012

Last week I shared the story of Rachel, a mother diagnosed with terminal cancer and how her story impacted my own.  This week I want to introduce you to Ian and Larissa, a special couple who is truly living out 1 Corinthians 13 in the way they display love to one another.  I believe their love for each other will touch and challenge you as it did me.

When I got married, I promised to love “in sickness and in health, till death do us part”. I meant it too. To the degree that I could, as a 20 year old college student, I acknowledged that our health would falter and that I may outlive my husband.

This promise is not unique, yet sadly upholding it is. In fact, most marriages do not last long enough to test the boundaries of bad health or spousal demise. In light of this, I was not surprised to see how deeply touched I was when I first learned of the story of Ian and Larissa though the Inspired To Action blog.

Ian and Larissa are a couple beautifully living out their marriage vows. Yet it was not their vows said during their ceremony, but rather their strong fulfillment before and after that gripped my heart so strongly. I invite you to be inspired toward a more selfless love in your relationships by watching the story of Ian and Larissa here.  It is a small video, less that ten minutes, yet I believe it will impact and challenge your heart you in a big way.

You can read more about Ian and Larissa and follow their journey at Pray for Ian.

Next week Tuesday we will hear from Rachel our contributing blogger and then I’ll be back in the week following to share another woman who has impacted me in a lasting way.
