Im running a couple of day behind on my Journal. I hope to catch up today.
Read todays dare, and it was about staying in the word. I committed to reading reading at least 20 min everyday. I am excited because that is where I will get more wisdom, and continue to grow in a Godly fashion!
My wife on the other hand was being terrible to me. She text me early in the morning asking me to not say ugly things about her to our son. I text her back asking what she was talking about, but she didnt respond. So I called her. She said that I was coaching him into saying her actual name instead of calling her Mommy. I told her I did not do that and I correct him when I hear him say that. He has started saying that on his own. Then she started saying that I was talking about how she takes medicine all the time. Again I didnt. Im not sure where he picked up this stuff, but I was not from me. I told her that it wouldnt make since for me to talk bad about her considering I still want to be with her.
Well that conversation was over then about 3:30 in the afternoon. She text me saying that our son wanted to stay the night with her mom. I told her no, because it was my night to get him, and I only get to see him Tuesday Night and Thursday Night this week. And I wouldnt see him again until the following Tuesday. She started calling me selfish, then other names. The conversation went on for 9min. She kept saying mean and rude things about me. I stayed consistent in being nice, and not saying anything negative to her. I let her do all the bad stuff. Finally she realized I wasnt going to cave in, and let her get her way. So we hung up. Didnt talk the rest of the day or night.
God was with me guiding me during all this. I could feel it!
Thank you Lord!
The Dares are helping you keep your composure in staying kind and patient.
I am not saying you should have at all. And it is important to have as much time with your son as possible. But could you have let the situation fall under the lesson of love lets the other win? Again, I am not disagreeing with your decision at all.
I suppose it could have Tim. But with her still being dead set on the Divorce, I want to watch out for myself so that I dont get burned in court incase she switches things up on me, saying I didnt want to watch my kid when I was supposed to or something like that. If it would have been my weekend this weekend I would have for sure let him stay with her mom.
