Day 143: Love always protects

  • Comments 2

[Love] always protects.—1 Corinthians 13:7 NIV


Remove anything that is hindering your relationship, any addiction or influence that’s stealing your affections and turning your heart away from your spouse.

- Another good reminder, that I need to stay mindful of the enemy who will try to hurt me with “harmful influences, unhealthy relationships, shame, and parasites;” and that I need to keep refreshed in the Word, prayers, community to help me fight off the enemy’s tactics.

BTW, MB responded to my “workshop” inquiry (from Day 140) today:

“Hi Adrian,  I hope your week went well also.

The workshop sounds very similar to mediation, which both of our attorneys suggested we do. As you know, I have been asking and trying to set up mediation dates that work for us both. You mentioned we would need to pay the mediator, which is true, but I believe the advice and support she will be able to give us will be worth every penny.  I would really like to see the mediator, Natalie Goldberg, that has been recommended to us. I can email her to set up dates. Are there any days that work best or days that do not work well for you? Thank you. Mary Beth”

Rightfully so, she is obviously confused thinking the workshop is mediation.  Or maybe she is simply avoiding the topic since it is coming from me.  I will need to reply with some additional information. 

Also, prayers please for tomorrow (Monday).  MB will be coming to the house to meet with an appraiser at 11:30am.  I will be at the house too.  It is unfortunate that she is “coming home” for this reason, but I pray that God will be with us while she is home.  I am just praying that God controls the whole situation. Thank you!   










  • I listened to some of  the message you left a link for.  Did he say that if money was an issue, they would wave or reduce the fee?  If so, maybe tell her your "mediation is cost free".  And even if they don't wave the fee, maybe you could prearrange a payment plan where you could pay back when you could, even if it was just alittle at a time.

    That way you could tell her  your avenue to  mediation is free or a much less financial burden.  


  • Thank you Tim for the idea.  That is a good idea!  Maybe I should go ahead and state that to her.  I planned to pay for it anyway (including her airfare and hotel cost).  I just assume she will not want to pay anything towards a workshop that is more geared to saving our marriage.  

    Thank you again and thank you for the prayers!
