A Marriage Carol
Title: A MARRIAGE CAROL
Authors; Chris Fabry & Gary Chapman
Publisher: Moody Publishers
Marlee and Jacob are headed to the lawyer to sign the divorce papers on a snowy Christmas Eve—their twentieth wedding anniversary. They are tired of fighting, and Marlee is pulling away, Jacob seems to be a the “whatever stage” where he just let her rant and paid her no mind.
When the highway is crawling with traffic, Jacob pulls off to take a shortcut. Marlee is upset about that, but Jacob does what he wants. A semi comes over a hill and broadsides them, knocking their car into a ditch.
When Marlee comes to, Jacob is missing, gone from the vehicle. There’s no sign of the truck. She’s all alone. But what happens next may just change their future…
A MARRIAGE CAROL is a short, easy to read Christmas story about the importance of fighting for a marriage. I could see little things in there that Marlee was doing, things that was pushing Jacob away, and his responses to it.
I am the mother of five children, and my husband and I decided long ago, we’d never say “I quit.” That marriage is worth fighting for. We’ve been married twenty-five years ago this year. I’m not going to say it’s always been easy. But I am saying that we’re still fighting for our marriage. And I encourage everyone to read this book—it will change your life. $14.99 hardcover. 128 pages.
