Sleep Deprived and Leaning on God

This week has been a week of tossing and turning. I, like the rest of my family, has a lot of stuff on our plates.

After 28 years of marriage, my parents are separated. Legally? No. But does that little piece of paper really matter? This was something that was popped on us a few weeks ago. Labor Day weekend to be exact. I do not, by no means, agree with divorce. Up until the night before Jeremy and I got married, I told him if he wants out, get out now. No questions asked. Once we take that vow, that's it. That being said, I am very very very angry with my mom right now. This is something she chose. That's as far as I am going today. If I start in, I am afraid that I won't stop. Please pray for our strength the next few weeks. (Their grandchildren, our children, do not know. Please, if you see me out, remember that.)

As if that is not enough, Whitney's (my baby sister who is getting married in two weeks) maid of honor, Jessie, is back in the hospital. This time it's with pneumonia. It's a scary situation and with respect for her family, I am just going to ask for prayers for her. I won't post details but will keep you updated.

I know God will not give me anything I can't handle. I just
wish that He didn't trust me so much.

-Mother Teresa

I hate all of this for you. I can't even imagine what you are going through because I have nothing to compare it to. I will you keep you and your whole family in my prayers, stay strong...sometimes it takes the kids to teach the parents a lesson.

I really like what Kara said at the end, so true! I hated to hear this when I had heard and I know you are hurting, try to stay strong. I will be thinking of you and your family. Also I will keep Jesse in my thoughts and prayers and hope everything is okay!!!

All I am going to say is we have all done everything we possibly can.

There is simply no hope left.

I can't imagine going through that with parents so I'll be praying for you!

The thing I learned a few years ago when my dad passed and my mom was "acting out" is that we may not always agree with them but we will always love them just like they loved us through all of our crazy mistakes as kids - just like the Lord loves all of us when we go through any storm (self imposed or not) in our life!

I'm so sorry. I remember when my parents separated it was horrible. I was an adult but had a younger brother at home that got left because my mom wanted out and my father was in no position to take care of him. Horrible.

I'm very sorry. Keep praying, the Lord will bring you strength.
