After my former spouse left me, I experienced what most would now call a “Extreme Life Makeover!” Moving my residence 5 times, losing my home, the work injuries, the condo fire, feeling destitute, deaths in the family, oh my!, I could go on. I won’t because every single trial was ordained by God to bring me to His throne of grace, to rely totally on Him, and to understand Him as my Heavenly Husband, Lord, and King. The restoration that followed would blow your socks off if you knew me in 2003 and in 2012. Many thought I would turn away from the Lord during those dark days. Er, no, I became humbled, dependent on a worthy Savior. He sustained then restored me and for that I am grateful.
I am grateful that He has chosen to bless me in this season of my life. Wow. I thought I was going to write about how difficult Sunday afternoons were as a “separated” then “single” woman in her late forties, back then. I thought I was going to vent the trouble I had this Sunday afternoon when I found myself very alone. Er, no, guess not.
Isn’t blogging great? You can talk yourself out of all kinds of things. Barking with a purpose.
Take care all. With love, Julie
