As I read the suffering and sadness here, my heart goes out to the gentle souls that chose to ask for prayer. There's humbleness, faith, and reverance in being able to do that. I join with you as the heartaches are lifted to a Sovereign God, our Redeemer, and Comforter.

This is my last Christmas in my home of 20 years. I have lost the struggle to spare it from the wreckage left by my ex-husband. I have been enraged, desperately bitter, and self loathing for my incredible stupidity and trust. Those feelings have kept me from being able to put my trust in the only place it is safe. God never promised me no pain. He did promise to give me the ability, through Him, to bring a different perspective on whatever life handed me.
I have been so richly Blessed to have had this home in which to bring up my son, and to have the memories that are not confined within it's walls. I carry those within my heart. I hope that its next occupants will find the warmth that I have experienced in this, their home, and that it will last. I'll put the house up for sale after Christmas, after I can clear away the clutter of 20 years.
It's a scary time for me and I'm holding a tight grip to an unseen hand, and trusting.......
My ex-husband is preparing for bankruptcy and I'm bracing for the fallout. The damage isn't over, and I don't know how many vices that were his alone and hidden from me, I will be held accountable for. I have made choices along the way that may come back to haunt me. I have consistantly pulled up when it came down to pressing fraud charges against him for forging my name or including my name to borrow money. Several times, I have discovered the action months or years later, but opted to not press formal charges. I just couldn't do that to my son, if there was any other way. I don't know how things will turn out, but I'm trying to take it one day at a time.
It's not original, but it bears repeating: I don't know what the future holds, but I know who holds the future.
At this time of year when we celebrate the birth of the One who paid for our messes, our frailty, our sin, I'm grateful for the unimagineable gift that was given to us individually. That infant's hand that wrapped around Mary's finger, and was later pierced by hatred, extends from Heavenly places to reach out in love, power, patience, and undertsanding to each of us. As Jesus was with His disciples for the last time and facing the torment that was iminant, He was concerned for, and loving, you and me. He knew why He was taking the path before Him. He's not likely to forget us now.


Jesus' prayer, concerning the disciples and you and me:

And for their sake I consecrate myself, that they also may be consecrated in truth.
I do not pray for these only, but also for those who believe in me through their word, that they may all be one: even as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be in us...............
John 17:19 -20


God Bless, Comfort, and Guide Us All!

CBB,

I rarely look at this thread, so I don't know why I opened it today.  I just want to say, as a single mom, I can relate to much of what you said, especially your strong emotions; wounds are especially hurtful at this time of year.  But you are strong, you are intelligent and you certainly have your head in the right place, so you will be fine.  I would suggest that you find an attorney skilled in this type of divorce, to shield you as much as possible from having to share the fallout of your husband's actions.  I'm sure there are some innocent spouse protections but it would probably take a pro to be able to utilize them.  In the meantime, take comfort in prayer, in your son, and in your knowledge that things will be okay.  God bless you, CBB, now and in the New Year.

CBB,

I also I think I shared with you once before, was married to a man that drove me into the poor house.  I lost my dream home we had built, and had no resources at the end of that long term marriage.  I even had to pay for the lawyer to severe me from him.  That was 12 years ago.  Through the grace of God, much of what was lost has been restored to me financially at least.  I had no children with him (thanks to a good decision I made unilaterally mid-marriage to have a permanent birth control procedure done Smile  ) but I did have to raise two girls by myself after my first marriage self destructed.  I know you are struggling and trying to do the right thing, but I agree that you need a good attorney, because there are now laws that protect innocent spouses to some degree and they do not have the fall out bankruptcy does.  God has brought you this far.  It is just time for a new chapter in your life.  Step out in faith and all will be well.  I've been there.

Love you.

Please think of justinsmama and her Mom who is in the hospital now....her Mom having had an intestinal bleed and then surgery last night....she has an unstable blood pressure and her family is with her....big prayers needed....thank you.


JUSTIN:  You and your Mom are in my prayers.  Take care of yourself.  You cannot give what you don't have, so remember to do what you have to do for yourself to stay strong for your Mom and family.  Been there, it's hard, but you have overcome so much.  Pray for knowledge of God's Will and the power to carry it out.  I've got your back.  Love you.

To crazybabyborg.....My heart goes out to you. I also have had serious financial issues resulting from the demise of my marriage, and the callous, selfish behavior of my ex-husband. I can give you some good advice, if you want to get klaas to give you my email address. I will be praying for you, and I hope you can find some peace in letting go, and moving on. It can also be very empowering. God Bless You.

I am so grateful that my daughter escaped the violence that broke out at her workplace this past Sunday. I feel so blessed that I want to only praise God for sparing my child any involvement. I am going to pray for all my SM friends who are hurting and in need of God's healing grace.
 
May peace be with you all.

CBB
My heart to yours, sweetie.  I can't say anything that will help your situation other than I am sorry and I am here if you need to vent to anyone.  You are welcome to email me...just let me know.  I have never been in your shoes and I see there are others that have, so my advice to you is talk to those that have been there.  They may be able to offer you some answers.  They say when a woman gets a divorce it instantly sends her in to poverty.  I know this isn't the case all the time, but from my own observations of people I know I see it does happen.  Then the ex just lets it all slide and things get way out of hand and the one that pays is the spouse that is trying to do what is right.  I so despise the "life isn't fair" motto.  It really stinks!   All I can offer is {{{{{{{{HUGS}}}}}}}}

Monkeys, please keep my 82-year-old dad in your prayers. He had to go to the ER last night at 1:30 am, and it turns out he has pneumonia. He is getting oxygen, breathing treatments, and IV antibiotics, but pneumonia in someone his age is always worrisome.

Thanks.

BT, you and your father are in my prayers. Please give him a hug from us and ask him to stay strong...and please keep us updated, my friend!!

Angie, I am sorry to hear about your son. It is every mother's worst fear for their children. My mother certainly had her hands full with one of my sisters and I, and through God's Grace, I finally decided to grow up!  Laughing My sister, on the other hand, is still out there  Crying or Very sad I pray that you are able to get through to your son, for he doesn't realized how easily he can get locked in to that way of life, and for some, there is no turning back. Please let me know if you ever need to talk, for I have lived to tell the tale...

Snoopy, you and your family are in my prayers. God Bless Joyce's soul, as she now sits at the foot of his throne in complete health and peace.

God Bless all of the monkeys in all of your personal trials. Life can be so difficult at times. It is friends like you all who help lighten the load!!

AZSunny, my thoughts and prayers are with you in the loss of Wendy. It is never a good time to lose a loved one, but it always seems like the holidays make it even sadder. Prayers for your strength and comfort!!

CBB, my heart goes out to you, as you have truly been through the ringer. Your Faith and courage will certainly get you through this, as you have shown much grace and dignity in handling this hardship. Your beautiful words when talking about the Lord always touch me very deeply, and I know that He is guiding you through this journey.

Please pray for my ex-sister -in -law, Viki. She has been very ill this past year and was brought home for the holidays with Hospice care.She has taken a turn for the worse and the Hospice nurse has advised the family that she probably has 24 to 72 hours left. Please pray for her daughter who is an only child and will be left to handle the affairs on her own.

I have been so remiss in not checking this thread I am ashamed  Embarassed I think our holiday was so full of demand around the new cookie venture I lost sight of the new posts being made here.

AZSunny - I am so very sorry about your loss of Wendy, terribly sorry. I feel sure Rick will greet her in heaven. God bless each of you who loved her so much.

CBB - I think so many of us can relate to your situation, my first husband left me penniless after my family put him into business and I've had no help from him with supporting the kids either. My heart goes out to you, we're makiing financial downsizes in our life too, so I remind myself that our memories are ours forever and no one can diminish those. You are such a strong and good person, I can't bear to think he could impact you further so I do hope you can get the legal assistance you need to prevent that. You deserve good things in your life, you give so much so freely to others always.

Snoopy - my heart breaks for all I know you are feeling right now. Losing your sister so quickly as I lost Rick, well there just aren't words to describe how devastating it feels. Sending you many hugs and many prayers that God will assist you each step of the way for you so loved your sister. Christmas morning was quite hard for me this year, Rick's rocker sits on our porch and was the first thing I saw when I awakened and walked out to get busy with family breakfast and celebration. I wrote Lala's that for the first time in about a month, I let myself sit quietly and have that good cry. I also reminded myself that I know he feels my tears in heaven. Your sister knew how much you loved her, I am so sure of it. She is surely your guardian angel.

BT- I so hope your father improves and that they can arrest the pneumonia. I will pray for him for I know you must be very worried.

Cubbee- I'll pray for your ex SIL Viki too, it's so hard in these moments for her family so I will pray for a peaceful transition for her into God's arms.

Cubbee, thanks for letting us know about Viki. My prayers are with Viki and her daughter and their family. I pray that Viki is released into the loving arms of our Lord and Savior, and that her daughter has the strength to carry through in her mother's absence.
