    Please say a prayer for a member of this group. this person had been PMing me off and on for a long time. And this person was going in for a fairly popular surgery, but this surgery does have risks. It's been on my mind awhile I have not heard back...

    Many of us know how our spouses can spew venom when talking to us. Ripping us apart just with words. But, what we don't always know is this, or at least me.... When they soften some, and they begin talking to you. Even if it's a grunt if you asked...

    I think I did well biting my tongue in this trial. Maybe not right away, but bite my tongue I did. And listening. did well there too. And I thought, if things ever, ever get better this is one area I will not fall back and not do well, listening and biting...

    She left the house early afternoon. When she does this, it means for the most part she's gone till who knows when. But always have no expectations. I found her in the family room this evening. I then went to the basement to cool off. The house is...

    I prayed the other night in church like I mentioned in my last entry. Part of the prayer was what to do for her 50th birthday and our 25 year anniversary. We normally get each other very little to save money. I have been considering a nice anniversary...
  • she called me

    • 2 Comments
    About a week ago, I asked her if she would please go to a graduation party with me. she didn't say much at all. Kind of let it go in one ear and out the other. Better than her being negative. Today she called me while I was at work. She asked if the...

    4 of the last 5 years she's taken on a very big end of the school your project that requires a lot of planning, shopping, organizing, food prep, decorating, and so on. It would overwhelm me and I could not do it. The last 3 times she has not asked...

    She was sick last night. I called her this afternoon to check on her as well as discuss some other things. She talked to me in some detail of having food poisoning, what's going on with the kids schedules, etc. It was a pretty stress free call. She...
  • Wearing out and her with church

    • 8 Comments
    FYI...I feel like my responses are getting less and less effective. I seem to be wearing out responding. So, really keep this in mind if my responses aren't making sense or aren't on par. And always pray about anything I or anyone else says if...

    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...
