I am sending you over to Lysa’s blog today. She is speaking of husband/wife relationships but I suspect the means of weathering marital storms and even shipwrecks of marriages, if tailored to the parties will work to heal or weather other relationships as well.
Here’s an excerpt:
Broken down relationships can really break down a woman.
And if you’re anything like me, when you feel broken down those around you get your worst. Then upon all the hurt and anxiety you layer on regret, shame, and the feeling that you’ve lost yourself. You’ve lost that girl inside you that used to be so positive and happy and ready to take on the world.
Can I whisper a tender truth to you? The only way to recapture her is to come up for air and remember you are worthy.
Then you can act worthy.
And step aside from the emotional yuck to make some level headed decisions. Get a plan. Talk to wise people who love you and will walk this tough journey with you.
Now please click
and read it all in context.
Doctors are still uncertain as to why Sheila’s white blood cells are elevated; although we were told yesterday that they are starting to move in the right direction and she has been fever free since Monday and she did eat soft solid foods and kept them down yesterday! We are relieved and grateful!! Thank you for your continued prayers for Sheila and for others here at The White Stone who need us. We have added Ruth, Mabel and her family to our current praying needs. Others are ongoing. I pray we will not grow weary in our praying. Love to you all and thank you.
We have the God-given Right to do right in this wrong World,
