Flies in my soup


September and the first part of October flew by for me. Usually I am more on my game and have things in some kind of groove by the end of September. Not this year. But I was making the best of it.

Then our family got hit with one thing after another from the enemy. An example: my parked van was hit and run at Walmart. (Praise God for security cameras.) This thing and that thing really added up and normally I can bounce right back. I was really beginning to lose heart. Seriously... lose heart.

Now I have a real serious case of bad things happening to good people. Last week we were served papers from my exhusband from 12 years ago. He is a horrible deceptive manipulative and lying man. Very very bad man. He is lying in these legal papers, of course. He is biofather to my sweet near 13yr old girl. She knows what he is and wants nothing to do with him. In the meantime, my husband and I are so burdened by it all. I feel as if a dark cloud has moved over us. Real despair. Even when you know that God is in control, it is still a hard place to be. We will protect her with the last breath in our bodies. I dread telling her what is going on as it will genuinely devastate her.

I realize that this is not in my usual vein of blogging. But LIFE happens.

Would you find it in your heart to pray for my family to have complete victory over my exhusband's attacks and that we will have abundant finances to keep a good lawyer paid? Even further... that my ex would give up his "rights" and my sweet godly husband will finally be able to adopt our girl and make her dreams come true. Thank you and blessings on those who pray.



  1. In our area there are no other midwives except one other Christian midwife. She transferred to us from her because that woman had missed her last three appts. Sorry to hear about your difficulties. I'll be praying for you.

  2. I didn't know you were on HSB! Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog today. I pray that God will encourage and strengthen and protect your family as you walk through this trial together.

    We're planning on being there Friday.



  3. So sorry to hear life is distressing at the moment,you are sooo right when you say about knowing that God is in control but it is still difficult with the going through bit.

    But you really will get through this.It seems to me that God hates lose ends and sorting things once and for all with your ex may be the final tieing of lose ends (understated).

    I will stand with you in prayer and ask that God will bring freedom and a cutting off from the past for you and your daughter and blessing in leadership and fathering for hubbie.Also that Jesus will surround you with peace and fill your hearts and minds with His love.

    Take care.

    Ps thankyou for your comments I appreciate the wisdom and honesty.;O)

  4. I've said a prayer for you!

  5. How difficult. God is sovereign. I'm praying. God loves your little girl, and will care for her.


  6. Dear Father in Heaven Thankyou for christian families. Please bless this family on this blog to have peace that passes all understanding and that Jesus Christ your son be glorified in all that occurs in their lives. Please give the wisdom that they need in order to endure these conflicts and bless them with the financial stability needed to do what is right. In Jesus Name I pray.Amen

  10. Thanks for commenting on my blog! It's difficult to feel the joy when we are experiencing trials, believe me, I know!! We are experiencing a bit of a trial also and I have a hard time not dwelling on this! I really try to focus Daily on God's Word and put in the Praise music! I especially like Amazing Grace by Chris Tomlin.I will be praying for you!

  11. Hi,

    Thanks for the idea about how to make the quilts with less material. I hadn't thought of that.

    You have vision forum toys?? Does that include the real metal weapons? (I won't tell my Josiah that. He thinks they are so awesome. I'm not sure we SHOULD win. ha.)
