Love is a powerful thing and having your loved ones around to share in some of the best moments regardless of everything, is in itself proof of a strong bond that cannot be easily broken.
Instagram user, Deborah, recently got married and some photos from her wedding captures her being walked down the aisle by her brother who is in a wheel chair. Narrating what happened, she revealed he had being involved in an accident two months to her wedding.
According to her post, the injuries sustained were so bad he was restricted to a wheelchair. Concerned about ruining her picture perfect wedding, he suggested she found someone else to walk her down the aisle but she insisted he be the one as that in its own way, was going to make her picture perfect wedding happen.
She wrote: "On 23rd June 2019 my brother was in a near fatal car accident. He had to be cut out of the car that had collided with a tree and airlifted to hospital. He suffered major injuries, breaking both of his ankles and knees in multiple places, breaking his right clavicle and elbow, fracturing his ribs, a collapsed lung, perforated bowel and perforated stomach.
There is nothing that could have prepared us for this news. I was broken, confused and had moved beyond weary to just completely flat out finished. So the only option left was to hand everything over to God because I had nothing left to give.
The thing is my brother had been in hospital for 2 days and we had no idea, the police nor the hospital had contacted us and so we were none the wiser. But God already had Him covered, God ensured that he had no brain injuries, God ensured that his spine was intact and unharmed, God ensured that authorities would be able to cut him out of the car, God ensured that his surgeons would be able to carry out his preliminary surgery with skill and precision. God was always in control no matter how hopeless or bleak the situation may have seemed. He was by his side, His angels were on specific assignment and there was a battle for his life in the realm of the spirit that our God claimed the victory in."

"My brother was meant to walk me down the aisle on my wedding day which was exactly 2 months from the date of the accident. He was already dealing with a pre-existing medical condition and he thought that because of this and the difficulties he already had with walking, that I wouldn’t want him taking me down the aisle anymore. He thought it might spoil my picture perfect vision of my wedding day and he discussed with me early on in the year someone else perhaps stepping in for him. But you see the truth is my idea of picture perfect is exactly this! It has God all over it, it has His victory etched in every tear, in every smile and in every hand raised. That is my picture perfect, that was always my greatest desire that Gods faithfulness, His mercy, His power and His glory would be revealed to believers and unbelievers alike."
