And On The Side...

Can ya'll pray - I've been fighting one of those headaches for three days now - you know, one of those that is borderline migraine, but hasn't quite made up its mind to go that far yet. Sensitive to light, nauseated by food, and hurts to move, but not quite to the proportions of a migraine. It is making my daily life difficult, and four kids home for a four day weekend really are not helpful for migraine fighting!

Thanks for all the input, too. My husband mentioned again to someone about going to this couple's house for a few days on his way home. I'd love him to go. I'd love to go, too. But if that is what we should do, please pray for guidance and for funds for that... I hate to trust my instincts here on this one since everything in me always wants to go to their house! :) It is in many ways my home. Safe ground. Peaceful. And with people who know me probably better than I know myself, and love me even if I act like a brat! The mileage they have in my life is amazing.

It is true, too, that I think that with my pastor, it will take weeks before either of us are able to establish trust with him. He is not helping in that regard. I don't want to work against him or in rebellion to him, but I might not be able to work with him, either. We may have to work with another person. We'll see. I want to make this decision with my husband, not without him.

Oh yuck. I have never had a migrane but I have had some NASTY headaches. Not fun. Especially when you have kids to take care of!

The decision, of course, is entirely up to you, but my two cents are that if you are not able to trust your pastor right now, then you will spend so much time working on the trust issue rather than on the central issue of your marriage, and that is NOT WORTH IT!!!

Ellie,

I am praying for you from your head to your treasures. May God give you all you need for these days.

I am curious about these dear friends you hope your husband goes to see. What is it about them that makes them "home" for you? What a gift they must be to you. What gave them the "mileage"in your life?

look for a nouthetic counselor..all answers can and should come from God's word. there is alot of information gathering but there should be hope and a plan shown too. Put your trust in God for the right thing. People will fail we are all sinners saved by grace
