    How foolish the flesh can be. Years here and being in peace so often when the world would say cave in and give up and abandon her and God because there's nothing to be happy about. And knowing the peace is only from God. Through prayer and reading...

    When I was even in preschool I worried about my future, my career, if I would have enough money. Things through my life would be always at the top of my thoughts. How can I pray for a furnace if it goes out, will I be able to retire decently, will I ever...

    Man, does the flesh just take a hold all the time. At least mine. but thankfully our Father is there to always pull me back usually pretty quickly. Thank God. Lost my wallet, with a company credit card. Looked all over and could not find it. Was stressed...

    Thanks for the replies all. Eddie I don't see how I can even bring up the LD without revealing our marital problems and making her look bad. I do feel like I am doing a good job standing for the marriage. Though i know i am not perfect. I think all...

    My brother told me his friend, who I have met several times, had his wife basically separate from him, although they are under the same roof. My brother was asked by his friend to reveal this to no one. I told my brother the best thing he can do is give...

    I have to remember.....We hear so often on this site to not have expectations. But I have to remember that is reserved for my wife. Not to have expectations of her reactions to anything I do with kindness or showing patience. But I need to keep reminding...

    About a week or so ago, she surprisingly shared something that happened to her. She just does not share anything personal, making sure she shows me her wall is still up. I think she has gone out every night this week. But midweek she said as she was heading...

    I originally had it planned for my mom to take me to the hospital for the outpatient procedure yesterday. But as the time got closer, she said she would take me. But it was really because she didn't want my mom coming into the house and seeing that...

    I will not be on this site tomorrow and maybe for much of today. She's been showing some kindness. I bought a kitchen appliance and with a bit of luck, got an $1100 appliance for $371. She told me good job. I was sick last week and she actually told...

    Huh, we all are finding or will soon learn to find peace in this trial. Even when we get hit with a new blow in the trial. And we all seem to come to realize when we grow in the dares, and find God's comfort, and how to show patience and kindness...

    Eddie, you are so right that this trial we all are in isn't good for the children. But, maybe I am just pulling the wool over my own eyes. But I thank God our kids seem to be doing remarkably well in all of this. it is surprising to me. The oldest...

    A daughter called late at night. She was stuck in the snow. away from town where we could not think of why she would be 45 minutes away, especially after midnight. I drive out to see if I can find her and dig her out. She calls back and says she is now...

    before this trial, i could not think and write or type at the same time. But now, it is probably the easiest way for me to clear my thoughts. And I need to re examine how i am acting in this journey. So here goes. She has been much calmer lately. And...

    We sat down for about 45 minutes, amazingly no kid interruptions. In the past when it came to finances she would never sit down and discuss any numbers with me. She had me handle it all, not that I wanted it that way, but no choice in the matter. Tonight...

    It's kind of funny. I bet each of us has read a verse in the bible and just breezed right by it but then years later, that verse suddenly hits us and makes a profound impact. Or we are told to not pull our spouse's car up to our car and it makes...
