Man gives his wife his kidney in celebration of their 23rd wedding anniversary

A man celebrating his 23rd wedding anniversary gave his wife a life-saving gift: a kidney. With it, Cesar Calle gave his wife Monica a life free of painful dialysis treatment, which she needed for polycystic kidney disease she had been fighting for a decade, the Sun Sentinel reported.

The couple spoke about the five-hour surgery during a press conference from Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood, Fla., where the surgery was performed on Feb. 19. “I feel like a million dollars,” Monica said, three weeks after the transplant.

“And I think I look like a million bucks, compared to before.” Selflessly, her husband, Cesar, offered to donate one of his kidney’s to his wife, and in December the couple got word that he was a match. Dr. Juan Arenas, a surgeon and chief of the hospital’s Memorial Transplant Institute said, “To find a match between spouses is very unusual but very lucky for us to be able to find that.”

According to the Sun Sentinel, Cesar said, “For me to do this, it was big. I was shocked. I thought it’s not real, this is not happening.” As she celebrates her wedding anniversary, Monica reflected, “Little did we know 23 years ago that this was going to be the angel to save my life. I felt like I just won the lottery.

I started dreaming of what my future would look like, not having to do dialysis. The fact that I can actually travel now and not worry about carrying boxes with me or supplies, or worry if it’s gonna get lost. I felt so free.”

Twin sisters marry twin brothers in twinsburg town, by twin ministers

Twin sisters, Brittany and Briana Deane, in a wedding ceremony officiated by identical twin ministers in a town called Twinsburg, said ‘I Do’ to twin brothers Josh and Jeremy Salyers.

The Sun reported that the brothers both popped the question at the same time and even the date of the proposal was also a nod to their connections – February 2. Josh and Jeremy Salyers, 34, met twin sisters Brittany and Briana Deane, 32, last August when they all attended a festival for twins in the town in Ohio, USA.Twin sisters marry twin brothers in twinsburg town, by twin ministers

Disclosing that they had an instant connection, Briana has now married Jeremy, while her sister Brittany married Josh. The ‘Twice Upon a Time’ themed nuptials took place as part of the 2018 Twins Days Festival. The 32-year-old sisters fittingly wore identical dresses while the brothers, 34, sported matching tuxedos.

“It’s really been a fairy tale come true. Marrying twins is something that’s very important to us,” Briana (who married Jeremy) told PEOPLE, describing the ceremony as a “double fairy tale.” “Even when we were little girls I can remember being in kindergarten, knowing that that is what we saw for ourselves.”Twin sisters marry twin brothers in twinsburg town, by twin ministers

Brittany adds: “We knew that the chances were incredibly scarce. The stars had to align for our dreams to come true. I get to marry the man of my dreams and at the same time I get to look over next to me and see my twin sister marrying the man of her dreams.”

And Jeremy said: “You know when you know. We’ve always known our whole life if we were going to be married that it was going to be with twins.”Twin sisters marry twin brothers in twinsburg town, by twin ministers

The couples now plan to all live in the same house and raise their children together. Brittany, who also works with her sister in a law firm, said: “We imagine it will be like two mums and two dads.”

Love: A Principal Ingredient in Marriage (Part 1) by Pastor Faith Oyedepo

Topic — Love: A Principal Ingredient in Marriage (Part 1)
Dear Reader,

When God created Adam, He placed him in the beautiful Garden of Eden. Endowed with superior intelligence, God commissioned him to name all cattle, the fowl of the air and every beast of the field (Genesis 2:20). One thing was lacking, however. Adam had no companion to love and communicate with.

After God created Adam, according to Genesis 2:15, “then the Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it.” So, Adam had a responsibility, a job that surely proved to be fascinating for him. Adam explored and learned all about the world—animals, plants, the beautiful and intricate variations of God’s creation. Not only was he learning, God gave him the privilege of naming all the birds and animals and other living creatures (verse 19).

Love: A Principal Ingredient in Marriage (Part 1) by Pastor Faith Oyedepo

Whether Adam knew it or not, God knew something was not right. The Bible says: And the Lord God said, ‘It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him (Genesis 2:18). Let’s think for a moment about why it was not good for Adam to be alone. He, of all the physical living creation, was without a helper at his own level (verse 20).

If Adam were by himself for any significant amount of time, imagine how he must have felt when he observed that even animals had their mates. Through Adam’s observations of the animal kingdom, in its masculine and feminine, he would have been constantly reminded that he was the lone human being on the planet. He was a male with no corresponding female.

To provide such a companion, God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; and the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he [or, builded] a woman, and brought her; unto the man (Genesis 2:21, 22). Imagine the surprise and joy of waking up to behold a beautiful woman! Adam called her woman because she was taken out of him. It was then that God stated the purpose of marriage – Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh (Genesis 2:24).She was bone of his bone, and flesh of his flesh. This began the institution of marriage in a relationship of love.

Love is never a magical, mysterious emotion that two people fall into or out of for no apparent reason. The truth is different: Loving relationships must be nurtured. They take work. Love is care and consideration directed toward another person, not just an ethereal emotion.

The work involved in building and preserving the marital bond is well worth the time and effort. Husbands and wives, who are committed to this positive process, often describe their mates as their best friends. This is simply another way of describing the kind of bond God desires for every marriage.

Love: A Principal Ingredient in Marriage (Part 1) by Pastor Faith Oyedepo

Husband and wife must learn to work together in marriage, showing respect and love to each other. Such an approach follows the biblical principles of wives submitting to their husbands and husbands loving and honouring their wives (Ephesians 5:22, 25; 1 Peter 3:1, 7). Establishing family in an atmosphere of love and respect gives the newly married a foundation upon which to build their life together

Love and marriage begin with having a relationship with God, the one Who instituted marriage. Do you wish to invite Him into your marriage? You need to be born again. This is done by confessing your sins and accepting Jesus as your Saviour and Lord. If you are already born again, rejoice because your case is settled. If you are not yet born again and you desire to do so right now, please pray this prayer with faith in your heart: Dear Lord Jesus Christ, I come to You today. I am a sinner. Forgive me my sins and cleanse me with Your Blood. I accept You as my Lord and personal Saviour. Make me a child of God today. Thank You for delivering me from sin and satan to serve the living God and thank You for accepting me into Your Kingdom.

Congratulations! If you prayed this simple prayer of faith with me, you are now born again and a child of God. He loves you and will never leave you. Read your Bible daily, obey God’s Word and seek Christian fellowship (John 14:21).

Pastor Faith Oyedepo is the wife of Bishop David Oyedepo, the founder of the Living Faith Church Worldwide a.k.a. Winners’ Chapel, and Senior Pastor of Faith Tabernacle, Canaanland, Ota, Nigeria.

NBA Star Blake Griffin ordered to pay his ex-fiancee, Brynn Cameron $258,000 a month in Child Support

NBA star, Blake Griffin, 29, who plays for Detroit Pistons has been ordered to pay his ex-fiancee, actress Brynn Cameron, 32, a whopping $258,000 a month in child support for his two kids.

Blake and Brynn have been battling in court over a nasty paternity case and a separate civil suit where Cameron claimed the NBA star broke off their engagement shortly after he started dating Kendall Jenner when he was still part of the Los Angeles Clippers.

In the court document obtained exclusively by RadarOnline.com, it was claimed in the civil suit that the 29-year-old will give Cameron over $258,000 every month in financial support for their two children, Ford, 5, and Finn, 2.

This means Griffin whose annual income totals to $35 million will pay his ex-fiancee $3 million every year.

According to the documents, both sides who have joint custody of their children were ordered in July to “mutually agree” on school expenses, but the Pistons star would be responsible for extracurricular activities.
