Young couple heading for divorce.
« on: August 16, 2013, 12:56:24 AM »
I learned today that a couple I know is getting a divorce. I don't know how old they are exactly but I imagine neither can be older than 21. They're only a few weeks from their second anniversary and the wife is demanding a divorce. The husband was going to college and was doing well for himself but dropped it all to marry her. Please say a prayer for them.

Lord have mercy on Dennis and Lucy.

That's absolutely terrible. Doesn't that woman know what kind of guy she has to be so dedicated to her? And not even after 2 years?

Hopefully they don't have children.

Lord have mercy.

Lord, have mercy!
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Lord, have mercy on the both.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

Lord have mercy!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
