eternally thankful

this is the fourth anniversary of the best and worst day of my life...this is the day i stood in my living room with tears streaming down my face and begged my husband not to leave...this is also the day that made me step back and take a good, long look at myself in the mirror and realize my own faults...and this is the day that i decided to make a change for me, for us...

one thing that was very hard for me during my seperation was how many people would tell me "i wouldn't put up with that, just divorce him"...we live in such a culture of divorce, marriage doesn't seem to be held in very high esteem anymore...the process of divorce can be even easier than marriage sometimes...everywhere we turn, a marriage is in trouble or a couple is separating...the statistics are scary and no couple is immune to the possibility...not one!  one bit of advice to all you couples...guard your hearts and your marriage..."Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life" (Proverbs 4:23,)...

i am so thankful that our love story didn't end there, that it did indeed have more chapters to it...the reward of restoration was well worth the wait...and i am eternally thankful that our love was rescued by God

Joshua 1:9

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.

out for now
