We have come through a tough year with our daughter getting divorced. She had been married for almost 14 years when her husband walked out saying that divorce was his only option. or something like that. We didn't agree with him at the time, but after many eye opening circumstances it's like we all got on a train headed for destruction, and their failed marriage was the proof.
Still, God cares and loves us - through thick and thin. That is our consolation when our hearts feel as though they are being crushed. Knowledge that this world is not the end - there is yet forever to look forward to - that truth makes me happy, does it make you happy too?
We never were exposed to the judicial system of lawyers and judges (other than the one time my juvenile daughter sued to get her savings returned after buying a lame horse sold as a sound horse, we won BTW.) and so I think we probably didn't realize or do things to the best advantage of - not our daughter or her ex... but our dear grandchildren. I conscientiously have to believe that God will "work all things out for their good"... maybe not so much in this life but in forever especially, yes. I pray that He will protect them from the continuing hurts and failures the evil one has planned for their lives, and our family's, and even my daughters ex.
Divorce feels like there was a death in the family. I don't like it. It makes me sad when I think about how things could have been IF...
Pray for the children in all of our worlds that have to live with the effects of this scourge called divorce. There are too many. Pray that we as the adults in their lives will help them to seek God first "in all things" for He never, ever, even in all of forever will change! That truth should grow to be precious to many children who have endured such a drastic change in their daily lives.
"For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Is it not even you in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at His coming? For you are our glory and joy." I Thessalonians 2:19, 20.
Tried to upload a cool video of geese flying away from Alaska. Don't think it worked. Is blogger having problems with their video stuff? >:-\
