I know that it has been a very, very long time since anything has been posted on this blog. To be honest I’m not sure where to start or how to begin what I’m about to say.
Kevin and I have been separated for over 2 years. I have given him chances and more chances. I gave him an ultimatum with a list like counseling, getting a job and saving up money so we can be together. I extended the deadline. I needed signs that Kevin loved me and wanted to repair our marriage. Instead he pulled away, not talking to me for about 2 months while he read books related to his thesis. He called me a distraction. Grrrr.
Kevin made so many bad choices in our marriage. He made quite a few bad choices since we have been separated. Plus there were so many broken promises… To be honest Kevin put me in an extremely tough spot. I prayed. I thought. I talked to my counselor. I talked to my priest. I listened, talked and prayed some more til I came to a very sad conclusion.
Our marriage cannot be saved. I have filed for divorce and will start the annulment process after our divorce is final.

I hope all your celebrations over Christmas were filled with much joy and blessings.
Jesus The Son of God was born on Christmas morn. Love touched upon our world that very special day. God is Love. Jesus is love.
A new year has begun. 2016. What is this year going to bring us? Are we going to better our lives? When opportunities come your way are you going to say yes? I wonder what the political landscape in our country is going to look like. Are we going to work on our interior lives?
May God guide each of your personal journeys in 2016.
Happy New Year!!

I am befuddled, perplexed, and lost for words and ways to help my husband, so we will be together again. How can a person be helped if they repeat mistakes and are unwilling to look at and learn from the past? It breaks my heart but I it is inexplicable to me how he thinks and acts, plus his inability to listen to advice and to try that advice to change for the better.
Right now I know the main thing I can do is to pray for my husband. I pray that our marriage, a holy covenant, doesn’t fall apart but…
My heart aches…
God is in control. I know this. Even though things with my husband seem so discombobulated.

Okay, I need to get to my husband Kevin Rice. He broke his fibula and will be having surgery on it. Because of eviction, financial stuff and other crap we have been separated. I need to take care of him. Looking for job around Boca Raton, Delray Beach area. Praying…
Kevin is probably out of surgery by now.
This is so…. I don’t know. Crazy.
I had already bought plane ticket to see him for our anniversary. God is calling on me to move to Florida and take care of my husband. So unexpected. But everything happens for a reason. Relying on Jesus for guidance.
Asking for prayers.

BUNKERVILLE | God, Guns and Guts Comrades!
Am I the only one who recalls all of the thousands of waivers that were handed out in the beginning of the implementation of Obamacare? If you had the right connections for your business, no problem. We thought we had a win with Hobby Lobby at the Supreme Court. And we did .But guess what Obama just did with that damnable pen of his? Hobby Lobby Employees Will Get Birth Control Under A New Rule That Sidesteps Supreme Court’s Decision. Obama overrides the Supreme Court this past Friday. More on that after I get done with the Sisters and their sad plight. Apparently, the “Little Sisters of the Poor” did not escape the wrath either, and just lost another round with the Tenth Circuit, deeming them not religious enough. Take a look at this moving clip and you tell me if they are not religious enough.
The Little Sisters of…

Yes, I am working now. Even though I still have a great deal of pain I decided that I would give going back to work part-time a try. Part of the reason I’m working is so I am able to get to Florida to be with my husband. I have been working as a home health aide for nearly two months now. I like my job. I enjoy helping others in need. I really do think God has given me the grace to work with all the pain I have been experiencing. As much as I was praying for the Supreme Court’s decisions on the gay marriage and Obamacare cases to be different I wasn’t surprised by the rulings. Eric Erickson in his latest article Mass Hysteria in America points out how in today’s times “Up is down. Down is up. Good is evil. Evil is good. Wrong is right, and right is wrong.” He asks, Are you going to be ready to rebuild after the fires burn out? The fight isn’t over. We need to keep fighting for religious liberty rights. Charlie Daniels penned an open letter to President Obama. His message is loud and clear. It is a must read.
Happy Independence Day!!!
In honor of it being July 4 here is a poem on ‘The Republic’ from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Thou, too, sail on, O Ship of State!
Sail on, O UNION, strong and great
Humanity with all its fears,
With all the hopes of future years,
Is hanging breathless on thy fate!
We know what Master laid thy keel,
What Workmen wrought thy ribs of steel,
Who made each mast, and sail, and rope,
What anvils rang, what hammers beat,
In what a forge and what a heat
Were shaped the anchors of thy hope!
Fear not each sudden sound and shock,
’T is of the wave and not the ro
’T is but the flapping of the sail,
And not a rent made by the gale!
In spite of rock and tempest’s roar,
In spite of false lights on the shore,
Sail on, nor fear to breast the sea!
Our hearts, our hopes, are all with thee,
Our hearts, our hopes, our prayers, our tears,
Our faith triumphant o’er our fears,
Are all with thee,—are all with thee
Hope you have a happy and safe time celebrating Independence Day.
