Thank you for your prayers

Thanks for your prayers. There is no change. I've seen this look in other men's eyes in counselling. It is not good and he does not want to get therapy for us.

Sad, huh?

Oh well, can't force him to do anything he doesn't want to.

Tonight was not good. I bought something for $10.00 at McDonald's for our dinner because we didn't have time to pack a lunch before we had to run out of the house. Bill was not happy.

I've started teaching at the College again and Robby started his classes, so Bill and I will go from Sunday night to Thursday night without seeing each other except passing in the night ... he goes to bed at 8:30 and I am usually not in bed before 12:00 so we do not see each other awake at all. I'm sure that is part of the problem. It is not an ongoing thing, but it lasts during the semesters. I simply have to work at night if I am going to make money and money is at the root of the problem.

I feel so stuck between a rock and a hard place. If I am home, he is upset I am not making money, if I am out making money, he is upset I am not home. ack.

We need a miracle.

Oh, Carolyn, I'm just so sick about this. But I know, know, know it well.

There IS hope. Our hope is in the One who can heal us. I know you know this, but I just want to encourage you in the midst of the trial.

And the healing may not come when want it to, which is right now! But what do the trials do?

And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us. Romans 5

I love this passage because just look what He does in us! He causes us to persevere, have our character strengthened, gain hope!

Trust Him and have hope, my friend.

Thank you Gayla ... hugs...

What would our lives be like if the Lord did not include Romans in the Bible? I hate to think.

Perseverance ... proven character ... HOPE ... LOVE ...all poured out by the Spirit.

I'm waiting ...
