The story I just can't shake is this woman over the weekend, complaining and moaning about her jewelry getting stolen from her room at the Ritz-Carlton/Dallas.
And another story, about a North Texas woman who was grabbed off the street and raped for hours and cut up from head to toe. She arrived at a church, naked from the waiste down, bloodied all over. She, too, is engaged to be married.
These two stories offer something we ALL need. Including me: Perspective.
I think the Ritz lady should just be grateful her family is all alive and there to celebrate her special day. And I think she should be grateful to God for providing her with a husband who loves her.
Yes, it's a serious thing and is violating. But "considering calling off her wedding", in light of the rape story for the other soon-to-be-marrieds gives us real perspective.
