    Love is accountable – and I have been so blessed throughout this journey to have the support of some very special Christian friends, and a very wonderful Christian counselor. It had been 4 weeks today since I last met with my counselor – she...
  • A lovely evening

    • 5 Comments
    DH and I had a lovely evening. I sent him a text around 11:30 this morning that just said “hi”. He never did respond. Of course, all kinds of things started going through my head. I got out my Bible, and started reading in Psalms. I prayed...
  • Silence

    • 8 Comments
    Silence. It’s hard. I haven’t heard from DH since I left his house night before last after sharing my thoughts about conviction and the Holy Spirit. It’s hard to know exactly how to handle it. I know that God is working in the silence...
  • Living in Awe

    • 2 Comments
    Awe. Amazement. Gratitude. Wonder. Words cannot begin to describe what is in my heart. The God of the universe answered my prayers. Mine. I don’t deserve it. I am humbled by it and brought to tears. I sent DH a text this afternoon and asked if I...
  • God has called me

    • 5 Comments
    God’s pull on my heart is undeniable. For many months, I have been praying for God to raise up someone to speak truth into DH’s life. I have been praying for God to send workers into the harvest. My counselor told me weeks ago to be open to...
  • A new court date

    • 2 Comments
    I received a letter in the mail today from DH‘s attorney notifying me that our new court date is April 24. Three weeks. That’s the day before our fourth wedding anniversary. I told my best friend tonight that God created the universe in six...
  • Happy Easter

    Happy Easter! Today has been a good day, but a difficult one. My daughter and her boyfriend drove into town in time to meet me for church this morning. As I was driving home after church, my eyes welled up with tears as I thought about the family that...
  • There is another option!

    • 5 Comments
    DH came over for about two hours this evening. We had some meaningful conversation. Not a lot, but enough I think. We talked a lot about our jobs and how work was going. Then, I told him that I knew that he had told me over the phone two days ago, but...
  • Postponed!

    • 7 Comments
    I am in awe of God. After three days of agonizing silence, God worked through the prayers of his people. DH called me at 5 o'clock this evening, and told me that he called the attorney this afternoon and asked him to postpone the court date by one...
  • Still waiting

    Tonight at Bible study, we had to complete paperwork for next fall’s study. They handed us a sheet of paper with our personal information on it, and told us to make changes if we needed to. Of course, I had to change my address, emergency contact...
  • Love believes the best

    Yesterday morning before church, DH called and asked what my plans were for the day. I told him that after church, I was headed to my office for a little while. He asked what time I would be home, and I told him about 3:00 . He told me to call him after...
  • Mass confusion

    • 4 Comments
    Well, I am more confused now than I think I ever have been. DH had absolutely no idea about our upcoming court date. I opened up our conversation this evening by telling him thank you for coming over and saying that I figured with only 10 days left it...
  • Love is kind.

    • 2 Comments
    Even though I am not completing the daily dares day by day anymore (I think I did 4 rounds), I intentionally try to think about how I can express love to DH when I have the opportunity. He called me this evening to ask when he should plan to come over...
  • Thy will be done

    Well, after checking the mail today and not receiving any notification about the court date, I decided to send DH a text. I told him that I haven't received anything in the mail yet and haven't heard from him and that I had called the courthouse...
  • So much going through my mind!

    • 6 Comments
    With only 12 days left until d-day, I have been online this evening reading about what should take place. Since I have refused to have any part of this, and have not responded to his petition for divorce nor hired an attorney, I will not be present in...
  • I want to believe

    • 5 Comments
    I didn’t hear anything from DH today. I can hardly believe that he doesn’t know when our court date is. Surely his attorney has let him know by now. If he knows, I am really shocked that I haven’t heard from DH about it. If I haven’t...
  • Help my unbelief

    Tonight in my Bible study group, a lady came in that hasn’t been there in a couple of weeks. I don’t know her very well at all. She sat down beside me, and asked what my “status” was. I was caught off-guard, and tears started streaming...
  • God's plans cannot be hindered

    • 3 Comments
    I called the Circuit Court Clerk this afternoon, and my divorce hearing is set for April 3 at 8:30. As much as you think you are prepared, you never are. I burst into tears when the lady told me. At least I was off the phone before I really started sobbing...
  • Rollercoaster

    • 2 Comments
    My emotions have been somewhat of a roller coaster today. I haven’t spoken with DH since Thursday evening when we had our long talk. After church was over this morning, I sent him a text that simply said “I miss you”. He sent me a text...
  • Leaving the wilderness

    • 2 Comments
    This morning, my appointments were canceled, and I had some extra time to reflect. In the wee hours of the morning on August 22, God called me through John 13 to love DH to the end, whenever and wherever that might be. Last night, God revealed to me the...
  • Peace

    God is good and worthy to be praised! God has given me a great sense of peace this evening. The joy and the peace in my heart tonight are from the Father. Dinner with DH this evening went very well. For starters, I ended up cooking exactly what he wanted...

    I had to make a quick out of town trip today for a business meeting, flew out this morning and flew back late tonight. As I was driving home from the airport, it dawned on me that God is still protecting my marriage. I’m still wearing my wedding...
  • An invitation

    I had a weekly appointment with my counselor this evening. The last couple of weeks, I have left and not been in agreement with her. Last week, she told me that the bond between me and DH had basically already been broken, and tonight, she basically acted...
  • The hardest 24 hours

    • 6 Comments
    The past 24 hours have been the hardest since my journey began on June 11. I have been holding out hope that DH would respond to the conviction of the Holy Spirit, and change his mind about the divorce. But receiving papers in the mail letting me know...
  • Devastated

    • 7 Comments
    I no sooner posted my last journal entry then I went to get mail out of the mailbox, and the motion for default judgment was in the mail. I am devastated. I feel like a fool for even thinking that he might postpone things. I sent DH a text telling him...
