A Christian man who married a woman with an incurable skin disease inspires millions by proving that love is more than skin-deep.
The Bible shows us how God’s love looks beyond the appearance of a person and how unconditional love looks like. Edmilson Alcântara from Ceará in Brazil shows what the love of God is by marrying the “love of his life.”
On July 31, 2018, Edmilson married 28-years-old Karine de Souza. Karine has a rare skin disease called “Xeroderma Pigmentosum.” It is a genetic disorder in which there is a decreased ability to repair DNA damage such as that caused by ultraviolet (UV) light. As a result of too much sensitivity to sunlight, it causes depigmentation and skin lesions. According to research, this disease has no cure.
With her visible skin disease, Karine’s self-esteem is quite low and she often avoids contact with other people. But with God, she continued to live her life serving the Lord despite being judged by people around her. She also has put her confidence in God alone, that’s what Edmilson saw in her that made him love her.
Their viral pictures from their prenuptial shoot inspired millions!
Their photographer, Daniel Panisson Fotografias, posted their photos on Facebook with the caption:
Have you ever felt love?
Have you ever thought about giving up a great love? Have you worried about appearance and forgot to worry about the feeling?
So I invite you to feel and live the story of Karine and Edmilson.
A story so beautiful and full of inspiration, that will awaken you the most beautiful meaning of life.
In a world where appearance matters more than the feeling, they met was not by chance, it was a meeting of souls, a meeting of acceptance and character and love came up when their souls met and today you are the inspiration for so many people who don’t believe in themselves, in life and especially in love.
This is truly what true love looks like! Remember that you are loved no matter what your physical appearance may be. True love sees not your appearance but your heart.
Share this lovely couple’s story to everyone!
