"Broken Homes in the Bible" by Richard Pratt Jr.

I stumbled across this article that is certainly worth your time reading if you so choose. It seems fitting to post during this time when Craig and I are celebrating five years of marriage.

"No family is “fine,” “without problems,” or “great” until someone destroys it. Every home is broken from the day it begins."

"He can turn mourning into dancing; He can create praise out of despair. He can bind the wounds of the brokenhearted and set free those imprisoned in darkness. God can restore families and use the tragedies that so deeply hurt us now to move us forward in the purposes for which He created us. So call out to Him as your Father, and pray for His mercy on you and your home. Trust in His love for you and never give up. Our Father sent His only Son to die and rise again to forgive our sins and heal our shame. He is our hope in all the brokenness we face in our lives."
