A cord of three strands is not quickly torn apart.
The day of our wedding dawned beautiful and fair. I awoke as I had each morning for weeks, wondering if this was really happening to me. Linnie and I planned a very small ceremony with only our immediate families. Later, while traveling to our honeymoon destination, I said, “You know, we really have an enormous job ahead of us, making a home for my three and your five childre….I mean our eight children.” “Having a few doubts?” Linnie smiled, as he squeezed my hand. “I think you know me better than that, Linnie, I responded. It’s really going to be an adventure.” I couldn’t possibly realize as I settled back to enjoy our drive how tremendous the adventure would really be.
