It is obvious that this couple walk what they talk. They love the Lord and they KNOW Him. Each of them has felt the healing balm of God's goodness and when they come together to share their testimony, it is sheer joy. There is nothing better than listening to a seasoned couple who have been through trouble, disappointments, diffuculties share their testimony of the redemptive power of God. Their love for Christ and each other are palatable. One big take away from the Thompson's is that the trouble that we have been through in our pasts is no excuse to treat our spouse poorly. Rather, it should be motivation to treat our spouse the utmost love and respect.
