Praying for the Gosselins

I love linking up with Melissa at the Inspired Room on Friday's.  She always has a great way to end the week.  
I just wanted to share a little from my heart today.  I've been praying for Jon and Kate and their family all week.  I'm not making any judgements, I'm not picking sides, I'm not offering any opinions.  I'm praying for a brother and sister in Christ who are facing some tough times in marriage, just like the rest of us do.  Unfortunately, theirs in being done very publicly.  Can you imagine if there were camera on you at some of your moments in marriage?  Marriage is so tough to begin with without throwing in all their other factors.

I'm offering up prayers for all our marriages this weekend.  Are you in a rough spot?  If so, or even in not, I highly recommend the movie Fireproof.  Take the Love Dare!

Really reality post. HOpe many read this.

Relationship (marriage) isn't easy. Both parts must give and take. TRUST & GIVE TIME & SPACE are the keywords, well for my side.

Luckily, still together w/ the same man for 24 years now and blessed w/ a 24 yrs son & 17 yrs old daughter.

GOD Bless Us All...

Happy w/end!

Marriage and raising a healthy family is tough, even under the best and most normal of circumstances. It is so sad to see what has happened to them (and to so many marriages) and I too pray they will seek God and make Him and each other a priority over all else that tries to pull them apart.

Thanks for sharing your heart and your post!

Hi there!! I popped over from the inspired room, and I just have to say that this post delights my heart!! Your response to their difficulties is exactly how God wants us to respond, and I'm ashamed to say that until now, I haven't prayed for them. I have felt so saddened by all they're dealing with, especially having to do it so publicly. Now, thanks to you, I will be praying for them, too. :o)

I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Blessings and joy,

Actaully I don't follow that televison show (I've only seen it once) but I will pray for them. Marriage is hard enough but to have it filmed and with all these kids can't be easy. I hope that you ave a lovely Memorial Day with your family and friends.

I am praying too. They are def at a crossroads! Our marriage was saved by Love and Respect. I hope somehow they get a copy of that book!!!

Another great movie: Not Easily Broken. And sorry! but the acting is better than in Fireproof! :)
