Heartbroken ...

My husband left today.


We have been having problems for a while - hence the scarce posting - and having two teenagers in the house has not helped matters much. We started construction a couple of weeks ago to provide Milly with a closet as she is such a slob, we thought it might help. It all really started when the room stunk so much I told Robby he had to paint in hopes of getting it cleaned out.

Bill does not handle mess and especially construction well. And he doesn't handle financial spending either.

He warned me ... I was too tired and stressed to be able to help him. I cannot sit and argue with him when I do not get home until after he goes to bed and he gets up for work four hours before I am awake.

I am heartbroken.

I just do not know what to do.

Oh Carolyn, I had no idea anything was going on. I haven't been on LCF in probably 2 weeks.

Admittedly, I'm at a loss for words. Please know I'm praying for you. Our only hope is in God. YOUR hope is in the One who is able to restore. Though I haven't experienced your 'exact' troubles, I know what it's like to tread through a rocky marriage.

Praying fervently...

(call or e-mail me if you'd like)

Thank you for the support my friends. Bill returned but is very upset still... he just simply wants things his way and is not willing at this point to try to communicate. It's tough.

We need prayer ... thanks for holding us up.

The enemy is alive and prowling, but he's outside .. he can only make noise out there.

Carolyn I love you and I'm here if you just want to talk. I can't imagine how difficult this must be for you. I am praying for you and Bill. Lots of love tons of hugs and a river of constant prayers coming your way. Michele

Prayers for you, Bill and the teens. Sorry you are sick also. Hope you can get the renovation done, mold can be detrimental to one's health.

Carolyn said...

Thank you so much for your prayers, all of you! I feel them and it is strengthening me ... Bill remains at the house but insists he is looking for a place to live.

Sr. Pastor has offered to meet with him, but Bill refuses.

I am sad to say I have seen this many times in marriage counselling and know the look.

We need prayer, because only God can soften the hearts involved to bring about change.
