Yesterday during mid-morning, I sent DH a text that simply said “Thinking of you - hope you have a great day!”.   He immediately responded with “You too”.  That’s the only communication we have had this week.  I am wondering if he will reach out to me tomorrow morning before church.  I feel certain there will be no more legitimate mail at his house for me to pick up - just maybe some junk mail.  My thought is that if he is asking me to stop by and get my mail, it’s because he wants to see me.  Maybe he wants to see me because he just wants to make sure I am getting along ok, maybe he wants to see me because he misses me and is wondering about his decision.  Who knows?!  I miss him so much, and pray everyday for reconciliation.  I am also praying that my longing to be reconciled with DH doesn’t become greater than my longing for God.  I remind myself of the verse  “my soul thirsts for You, my whole body longs for You”.  I also ask God for guidance with any future interaction with DH, that my words and actions will point towards Him.

My daughter came into town yesterday afternoon, and spent the night with me.  We went shopping, ate Thai food, and stayed up late watching TV.  She is 23 and seriously dating a boy (almost 3 years now).  I am so thankful for this season - I know the separation from DH is bringing her into town more often.  There will come a day when she has a family of her own, and this mother/daughter time will be rare if it exists at all.  So right now, I feel blessed.  I am so thankful for the time.  I am going to tell her before she leaves that I am fine and that although I appreciate her visits, I don’t want her to feel like she has to.
  • I am sure he will live with regret all the days of his life with his decision.  And wondering what he's thinking will come up naturally.  But don't dwell among those thoughts.  When you find yourself dwelling upon what he's thinking, turn your dwelling into what God wants or is thinking of His will for your life.  the more you wonder, the more you read the bible, and then the more you pray, which brings you into further desiring what God wants in  your life, which leads to more reading, more prayer, and it continues....

  • I pray for your reconciliation and mine. I understand the fear of letting your desires become greater than God. It's hard not to want something so bad that you feel like you deserve. I'm afraid if my own situation is reconciled that I will give God less attention. I don't want that to happen. I think it comes down to habit. If we form a habit right now of reading our Bible and praying regularly even if things settle down we will still be able to give God the attention He deserves.

    Spend as much time as possible with your daughter right now. Lean on her. She probably understands you better than almost anyone else.
