Thoughts of a soon to be divorced woman…Death of a family….

Since I have entered the world of the soon to be divorced I have spoken to many women going through the same thing. Their stories have different details but the theme remains the same.  Husband leaves wife unexpectedly and usually with little concern as to how she will get by.  Husband's focus turns to himself and his needs regardless of who it hurts.  Husband is fooling around and takes the bulk of the marital assets. All secrets that were hidden, suddenly come to light in regard to this person you thought you knew.  This "man" to whom you gave your heart, your life, and your trust,  you come to realize you did not know this person at all.
Since I have begun this journey I have described divorce as a death.  Most women I talk with say it is worse then death.  I say it is a death but with intent.  A new friend said "that would be murder"  I thought about that for a while.  I agree….it is the intentional "murder" of a family.  Very sad, but here we find ourselves and we must continue to live our lives and live it well….









This is my command. Be strong and courageous do not be afraid or discouraged.  
For the Lord your God is with you where ever you go.
Joshua 1:9

Monday Morning Motivation…To you Lord I lift up my soul….

I have found, in my transition, that one of the must difficult parts of my day is just getting out of bed.  I could lay there for hours in a strange form of emotional pain.  As I encounter people in my situation, which is almost daily, they too have this problem. 
"Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you.  
Show me the way I should go,  for to you I lift up my soul".
Psalm 143:8
I thank you for this life Lord even the painful times because it makes me draw closer to you.  Help me to see my life as an adventure regardless of where I find myself.  Help me to see you in every situation. Please show me the way I should go,  for to you Lord  I do lift up my soul.  Amen
Happy Monday Everyone.  
Enjoy Your World:-)

Faith….











It has not been an easy since I have been put on the path toward divorce.  There are many hurdles.  In the beginning it was the shock and depression and the disbelief of abandonment.  In the months to follow it has been an effort to continue to function as I had before, plus, taking on the added responsibilities that were thrust upon me.  I have what I call "my people".  Lawyers, CPA's, Digital Forensics Specialists, Private Investigators, Bankers.  What a huge help they were to me.  I have piles of evidence.  I have my friends that have been so supportive and helpful to me.  What a God sent they have all been.  I have God, who I rely on more then I ever have and I have seen little miracles….Amazing:-)
I have met many women in similar situations.  I come across someone else in my boat nearly every day. I hear their stories and can feel their pain, their anger, their hurt.  I hear how their families were devastated. There are so many of us on this journey.  Not of our choice but we find ourselves on this road none the less.
So what do we do?  Keep busy, go out with friends, give the situation to God and talk to Him constantly.  Don't let it change who you are!
"May your unfailing love rest upon us Lord.  Even as we put our hope in you"
Psalm 33:20
Take it one day, sometimes one second, at a time and put your trust in God
