    Please pray for us in here in the Houston area. It is bad. We are trapped here in the apartment complex I am in as roads in and out are impassable. God is ahead of the water, though, as I've met neighbors who have invited me to shelter upstairs with...

    I cannot sleep tonight. In fact, I've been furious for the better part of the night. My husband continually sends messages to me through my daughter. It infuriates me that he is so childish that he cannot even text me a simple message, but will instead...
  • Another long post....sorry

    • 10 Comments
    I apologize that I don't post very often anymore. I do log in and read quite a few of the posts, but when I think I want to respond, I simply don't find the words to say. I prayed for us all again tonight when my phone alarm went off. Lately I've...

    I was sitting here wondering if there has been any success stories on this blog since any of you have been coming here? I was praying about a week ago for everyone here and asked God to give us one success story. Of course, by success I mean a marriage...

    Jesus said, "...29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light." (Matthew 11:29-30) It is easy for me to tell someone how...

    Dear God, Your purposes don't always come to light as quickly as we like. I want to push the obedience button and then have You show me what it brought about in my marriage. It is difficult to love without seeing the fruit or results of that love...

    " LindaGDP Fri, Feb 17 2017 1:10 PM I am glad your surgery went well and you are recovering. I am sorry you got served and are heartbroken. The only advice I can offer is you have to decide what you want, Justin, then tell God and let Him fight for...

    I haven't posted or commented in awhile. I went to a very dark place the weekend I was shut in with bronchitis. Got the text from my ex telling me I need professional help and assuring me he will soon be looking for wife #3, so he can have 'someone...

    Was sitting here thinking about Formyfamily as she hasn't posted since February 22 after asking prayer for her sister. Has anyone heard anything? If you log in Formy, just want you to know I'm thinking about you and praying! :)

    For months the Lord has been impressing upon me the idea of being thankful. It started with the scripture 1Thessalonians 5:18, " give thanks in all circumstances for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." My pastor spoke on thankfulness...

    I've been out of town. This evening my daughter comes over and says she needs to tell me something so I'm not blindsided at some point. I knew what she was going to tell me. It has happened. My husband has a girlfriend. It's apparently been...

    I'm back from my travels. I had a really good time. Thought of you all often and prayed for us all. I was able to check with my laptop but posting anything was just a hassle as I don't have Word on the laptop. I was told last night that my husband...
  • I just need to know

    • 6 Comments
    I sent my husband an email. Whether he will read it or not I have no clue. I have come to realize that I need to know what he feels I've done that was so unforgivable. I doubt he can really come up with anything. I sort of feel that if he does, it's...

    Ok, I know this blog is about journaling concerning the Love Dare and our marriages, but I want to just share how my evening went yesterday. I had tickets for the Houston Livestock and Rodeo Show with the concert being Alicia Keys. A friend was going...

    Hello. I tried to write something back on day 47 but took it down. As I read the entries, my heart just breaks to realize what a terrible state marriages are in these days. Mine included. My husband of nearly 14 years told me October 3 of this year that...

    I've been thinking lately about how the church in general deals with divorce. I've become super sensitive to the subject of divorce and what bothers me most is how it would seem the church has divorce care groups, but no marriage stander groups...

    I'm taking a Bible study on Revelation. This evening I was doing some catch up on homework and reading in the second chapter where Jesus is speaking to the church at Ephesus. He commends them for their good works then tells them they have lost their...

    I am having a really bad day. Actually have had quite a few this past week. Last Tuesday I gave up my dogs to my daughter and her husband who just bought a house. My head tells me the dogs are better off-they have a doggy door they can go in and out of...
  • I have struggled

    I have been struggling for a while, but holding on. It's the proverbial, tie a knot at the end of the rope and hang on for dear life. It's the mind battle. I had finished reading Romans and asked God where He wanted me to go next in His word and...

    Hi Everyone! I know I've been away for a while, but I'm still here and still standing. Sometimes it feels more like hanging on by a thread, but either way, still trusting God. I had a momentary break down last night. Could not stop crying and...

    I was reading some time ago the story of the crucifixion of Christ. It came to my attention, again, but this time with clarity, how at any moment Jesus could have called down legions of angels to defend Him; at any moment He could have said, "Stop...

    Hi All! It has been a tough day...I had a dental appointment to get 3 crowns. They prepped for crowns at 8:30 this morning and at 3:00 I went to get them on, only to have the dentist say he didn't like how 2 of them looked, so temporary ones and back...

    I haven't been posting as there hasn't been anything to say. I stopped doing the Love Dare book. I've been through it 4 times and quite frankly, I've found other books to read. I can't do the dares anyway, as my husband has made it...

    One of the ways I remind myself to keep my eyes on the Lord and remember He is faithful is I've begun recently to look at what He's already done and not what I can't see He's working out for my good. I lost a brother July will be a year...

    So, I was feeling pretty good about myself knowing the ground I've gained in Christ. BAM! Living lightning rod today for sure...one thing after another trying to send me reeling from discouragement to anger. Not going to go into details, but when...
