    This morning, DH asked me to make a deposit for him at the bank. In the three years we have been married, he has never asked me to do that. He always runs by the bank when he needs to on his way home from work. He gets off at 3:30 , and the bank closes...
  • R4D4 Couldn't do it

    I didn't get today's dare done. I can't call him during the day at work. I can text and he can text back when he has a chance. I had an opportunity to text him and ask if I could do anything for him today, but I chickened out. I am doing SO...

    Tonight at the dinner table, DH brought up the subject of Thanksgiving. He said he had discussed it with his daughter a couple of weeks ago after I told him I had thought about trying to move out before Thanksgiving. The night that DH told me he had spoken...
  • Time to let go?

    • 9 Comments
    Exactly one week ago at this very moment, I was in the arms of my husband. Tonight, I sit alone and have no husband. As I contemplate the events of the past week, months, and years, going back 19 years, I am inclined to believe that it may be time to...
  • Love is not rude

    I had to reach out to DH this afternoon. I have been concerned because I have not received any paperwork to maintain my health insurance through cobra. I called his employer beginning on Monday, and left a message, but did not leave my name. I only said...
  • It's over

    • 8 Comments
    It's been a long day. I woke up married, and I am going to bed divorced. I prayed right up through time for the court hearing that DH would back out. He sent me a text at 9:23 this morning that read "I am home now. I am very sorry, I feel ashamed...
  • 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...
  • Struggle

    • 8 Comments
    Struggle. That’s the only way I can describe it. Gut wrenching struggle. In seeking direction from God, he has given me three verses. Trust and obey. Be still and know that I am God. Pray without ceasing. Are these things in conflict with my desire...
  • The beginning of the “lasts”

    • 7 Comments
    I realized this morning that the “lasts” have begun. Last night was the last Thursday night I will live in our home with DH. I will be on a business trip next Thursday night. I will get back on Friday evening and move that Saturday. Tomorrow...

    Well, another Sunday, another text before church that I’ve got mail. Third Sunday in a row that DH has sent me a text before church that I have mail at his house. I sent him a text back that said I could pick it up either right after church or later...
  • 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...
  • 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...
  • A very bad day

    • 7 Comments
    I think today has been the worst day of my entire life. I took the afternoon off, and spent the time praying, reading the Bible, and talking to my counselor. I feel so stupid. I really expected DH to call me when he got home from work and tell me that...
  • R3D22 Did it in R1 but not today....

    • 7 Comments
    I couldn't bring myself to complete today's dare. What used to be so easy to say is now so difficult, and not because I don't mean it. I told him 4 nights ago that I love him and that I always will. It was the night that he told me he had...
  • Having a hard time

    • 7 Comments
    I sat down and read my divorce papers this morning after DH left for work. Since we had a prenup, I wasn’t surprised by anything except for one thing. The papers request that my name be changed back to my maiden name. I’m having a hard time...

    My husband‘s company picnic is tomorrow afternoon at a local amusement park. In the past, he and I have always gone together. The company pays for anyone living in your household. Then, they allow you to purchase extra tickets at a discount for...
  • R2D23 Love protects

    • 6 Comments
    Dare 23 - love always protects. It is interesting that this dare fell today in light of my Bible study last night. Our study leader said that there are two sides to God's love, nurture and protection. The nurturing side includes His compassion, mercy...
  • Oh boy, now what???

    • 6 Comments
    Well I just thought things were getting better. DH told me on the way to bed tonight that he wants a divorce and that his mind is made up. He says he told his daughter 2 weeks ago. We chatted for a while, very calmly. He says that he gave it more time...
  • Day 31 My Number 1 Priority

    • 6 Comments
    Today was another difficult dare for me. As DH becomes more distant, it is increasingly difficult to do the dares. Neither one of us has issues with not leaving our parents. His are both deceased, as is my mom. I believe he has had issues leaving his...
  • Why do I second guess myself constantly??!!!

    • 6 Comments
    I hope that I just did the right thing. My husband mentioned to me before he left for work this morning that his company has reinstated the company picnic. Up until last year, the company had always done a picnic at a local amusement park. They provided...
  • R4D27. Struggling

    • 6 Comments
    After completing 3 rounds, I am finding it difficult to do some of these dares again. I have considered in past rounds the various ways that I placed unrealistic expectations on DH - I expected him to do things the way I would want them done/do them....

    When DH initially told me back in June that he wants a divorce, I made no preparation to have anywhere to move out to. In October, when he told me that he had given it a few months and that his decision was final, I started making preparations to have...
  • R4D22 It’s all about me!

    I was able to spend almost 4 hours studying God’s word and praying this morning. I pulled out two different books that I brought with me, one is a 365 day devotional, and another is a 31 day book of daily prayers. God had a message for me today...

    It's long tonight.........Today's dare was hard. I cook dinner for us every night. Knowing that DH met with an attorney today, I really wasn't in the mood to cook dinner. However, I came home from work and cooked dinner even though I didn't...

    Tonight I sat down thinking that I would just have to admit that I didn't get the dare done today. I have been on the run all day long and couldn't even remember what the dare was for today. I sat down this evening to read it, and realized that...
