Wonder Doubled: An Inconvenience Rightly Considered

We have a new post up at the USCCB website For Your Marriage.

I wondered if I could pass through the airport security of two nations without the engagement ring secured around my neck being discovered and disclosed to my future bride. I also wondered if we would even make our connecting flight to Rome, as we clung to the armrests of the taxi, while the lights of New York flashed past – reminiscent of a Star Trek episode with Scotty shouting “I kint giv ya eny mur pow’r, Cap’n!”

We began our pilgrimage to Italy blessed by the prayers of friends for a grace-filled experience. We ended our journey with graces and blessings “shaken, pressed down, and overflowing.”

You can read the whole article here.



  1. You guys, this post is fantastic!! I loved reading about your adventures in Rome. Loved how you tied in all those Bible verses. And absolutely love that Chesterton quote, as does my husband. When you approach life as a big adventure, there's not much room for failure... just an inconvenience rightly considered. :)
