One of  the theme’s during Lent is that we are called to forgive others.  I saw an ex brother-in-law at my nephew’s wedding a few weeks ago and it was a very cordial gathering. It is weird how a moment in time many years ago a person can think that “he did quite a few awful things to my sister which in my opinion are unforgivable”.  While married to him and for a long time afterwards he treated my sister horribly.  Extremely awful things happened while they didn’t have a set custody arrangement.  There were certainly things that at the time I didn’t think that I would ever forgive my ex BIL for doing to my sister.

Over the past 15-20 years both my brother-in-law and I have changed. Thankfully he has changed for the better over the last 5 or so years.  At my nephew’s wedding my BIL gave an outstanding, heartfelt speech to his son where he acknowledged that he had made mistakes with how he treated my sister.  His speech was so passionate that I doubt there was a dry eye at the reception. I think that I had forgiven him before the wedding but his speech gave me the nudge to talk to my BIL and tell him that we all make mistakes, that I have made mistakes and that I will always consider him my brother-in-law regardless of he and my sister not being together anymore.

Jesus paid the ultimate price and sacrificed his own life to save us, forgive us for our sins. We are called to forgive, forgive even sins which we think are unforgivable.

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 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.

God Bless.

Thank you to all in the Armed Forces who have sacrificed and have paid the ultimate sacrifice so that we may be free. God has watched over our nation and been with our military in their fight to keep us free.  God Bless the U.S.A.

My husband is in Florida and I still am not there with him. I am frustrated with him cause Kevin doesn’t seem to take advice very well. I wish he would do things differently which would make it easier for me to come to Florida and be with him. For many suggestions he takes the hard road, tries other things and then finally realizes he should have followed the suggestion. I know that he is a bit depressed because I’m not with him but not sure whether this plays into his decision-making.  The past few weeks my pain has been worse.  I am sure it has to do with stress. I try to remember the serenity prayer as well as pray for my husband. I try to give the situation over to the Lord but that is so hard.

This is a bit late but I am wishing everyone a Happy Easter.  I hope all had a blessed and splendid Easter Sunday celebration with family and friends.  Easter was bittersweet for me.  Over the weekend I had a great time with relatives but I am still separated from Kevin. I am more hopeful than before that Kevin and I will be together soon.  

Catholics celebrate the Easter Season all the way through Pentecost.  Be joyful! Have faith and hope!  The Lord is risen!! He is alive!!!!   

How do each of us keep Jesus Christ alive in our hearts?  

There are many ways you can show others that Jesus is alive in our hearts.  One way I do this is when my mother needs help due to her aging and health issues I assist her in whatever she needs.  

God Bless.

The other day my mom said “I hope there is no dust in heaven.”  To that I said, isn’t heaven supposed to be perfect?  How can there be dust in heaven if heaven is perfect?  Plus we don’t know how heaven is physically.  Aren’t we outside of our bodies in heaven?  Aren’t we in heaven in spirit only?  I don’t know.  What are your thoughts on heaven?

Right now due to circumstances I am living with my parents apart from my husband.  I don’t want to be but maybe that is best for me and for us for now.  Kevin and I are rebuilding.  I think it is good that I am able to spend time with my parents, especially my mom since she is having trouble with her health.  This also gives me time to focus on me and I think I need that for now.  It is so hard being apart from Kevin.  Somehow this is part of God’s plan and I am trusting Him but this is so hard.

I have tried to keep up on what happened at the recent Synod on the Family but I need to read up on it a bit.  I am waiting for the English version of the final synod report to be released.

A friend suggested that I read James in the Bible so I have started reading James.  In chapter 1 James talks about having perseverance when going through trials.  Even in trials we are called to trust in God and have faith.  We need to lean on God in these tough times.

I have started my own jewelry shop on Etsy.  I am excited and will be posting more items to sell soon.

Have a blessed Sunday!
