    I was so sad to see that episode last night. I was hoping they would say they were quitting the show, not getting a divorce. I know things are bad right now, but it is like they didn’t even give it a shot to work things out. I’m praying for the too.

    A couple of notes:
    1. Thank you for officiating Lisa’s and my wedding. We appreciate what you do and have done for us!
    2. In our vows, we love telling people the part that says, “I will never ever divorce you”. Some people have thought it odd because “normal” vows imply that the couple won’t get divorced. We know that for some, vows are just words, nothing more. We also know that it can be the case for us if we are only looking out for our individual self interests and not trying to lift the other up and seek God together.
    3. We watch J & K + 8… together. It hurt because, as you noted, they kept pointing to their faith in Christ numerous times over and to have this as a result tarnishes the image that God has created for us to understand his love for us.
    4. Personal pet peeve from both adults: as a child of a broken home, this whole “I have to do what is best for the kids” nonsense irks me. I am grateful for the families that were created from my parents splitting, but do I wonder what life would have been like had my parents resolved their differences and reconciled their marraige, yes. What is best for the children is the parents quit being selfish and serve the other person’s needs. This is something I have vowed to do not just because Christ commands of us, but I do it because my parents did not and I do not want to follow that trend.

    I agree with Danny, it is NOT TOO LATE!

    To end on a happy note: I LOVE YOU LISA!!!

    Danny,

    Great post. I am praying for them to. I hope they will come to the cross and find healing. I think you probably should write a letter to Jon. What could it hurt? Just my opinion.

    I think you should write a letter to their church. I mean, I am not saying that their pastor isn’t trying to help them, but I have to wonder what he has done to try to bring them back to Christ being the first thing for them. That is their real problem, not that they are putting their kids above their marriage, but that they are putting their kids above God.

    Courtney is right! This is a good example of misplaced priorities. They keep saying they want to do what’s best for the kids, but that’s wrong. First priority is your relationship with God; second priority is your relationship with your spouse. At best, the kids are your third priority. You can’t be doing what’s best for your kids if you don’t have right relationships with God and your spouse.
