Hello MB Family!

I know that for many of us, tomorrow is going to be a day of being alone. Let's try not to make it a day of Loneliness. Let's spend special time with God and enjoy it, knowing that He loves us more than anyone else can. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Smile]" src="images/icons/smile.gif" />

I ask for your prayers because tomorrow also marks 1 year that my H said he didn't love me and left. I don't like to remember the details or relive that day because I know it's in the past and nothing can be changed about it. BUT, I do know that the enemy will try to disappoint me and bring back the pain. Please pray that God will give me strength. I want to spend my day with God, knowing that He has NEVER left my side.

Let's all keep each other in our thoughts and prayers tomorrow. May God comfort each and every one of us and hold us in His loving arms.


Have a Happy Valentine's Day!!!!

Hello my Dear brothers and sisters,

I haven't gotten to post much lately since my husband is now home. I am so grateful for this. I just don't have has much time as I use to, Praise God for this.

I want each of you to know that I do pray for all of you here. I know you pain all so well and to tell you the truth it is hard to believe that I am writing about my husband being home. Things really started to change last February. I was so sad and heart broken because my husband had plans to spend Valentine's eating out with his brother. But man has plans but Gods ways prevail. I was able to spend Valentine's night with my husband and I know it was all God. I know the pain of not having the one you love on such a special day.

Please remember that my husband said many of the same things that your spouses are saying. He said he was never, never coming back to me. He said he would never be with me again. Now we are making plans for Valentines night with our daughters.

Please have faith and believe no matter what is going on in your life. Everyone said my situation was hopeless. Please find peace in knowing that God answers prayers. I am a living breathing person that is telling you what God has done. You can ask me anything and I will answer you the best I can. I am not hundreds of miles away. I am only a key board away.

True I don't have as much time to post as I did, but I will always be available if you need me. I do check in almost everyday.

Have a blessed day and know that God is working no matter what it may look like.

What a thoughtful post, thank you! I recieved an e-mail from my estanged H today, and he asked me to let me know how it feels when I grow old and and am all alone. (a normal tactic for him, he wants out but he is EXTREMLEY ANGRY, I hired a lawyer and have asked for him to be As I read the e-mail I realized how many of my prayers have been answered over the last year, because when I read the words I smiled and heard the words in side my heart say... You're not alone... You never have been or will be, I AM always with you.

Thanks gentle. This gives me so much encouragement not to give up! My husband finally told me that he was going to pray about what he should do (come back or not). This is such a mighty step in the right direction and I have to learn patience! Patience!! Patience! I always seem to want everything now. I am learning, slowly. Happy Valentine's Day to everyone and I pray that you all find peace with God as your guide today. Blessings,

Interestingly enough, I was so busy today, I didn't have TIME to feel sorry for myself for being alone. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="images/icons/grin.gif" />

Also, it's my own choice to be alone, since there are actually TWO <img border="0" title="" alt="[Eek!]" src="images/icons/shocked.gif" /> men at my church who would have asked me out/given me a valentine's card/whatever, if I had ever encouraged their "advances." I do not, ever, do so, as I do not believe I am to give up my "stand" for my M.

I thank all of you for being here, and I thank you for your prayers, too. I,too, pray for each of my brothers and sisters who are hurting, and seeking God in this confusing, dark time. We truly are in a "valley of shadows," and need to hold the Father's Hand ever so tightly through this time in our lives.

PRAISE HIM for always being available to us! \o/

God Bless,

Gentle, thank you for sharing. God is SOOO GOOD! I am so happy for you. I will be praying for you. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Smile]" src="images/icons/smile.gif" />

My day today was WONDERFUL!! I went to church as usual in the morning. After service I went home to change and then headed to a small park overlooking the ocean. (this is the same park that H and I took our wedding pictures) The view from up there is spectacular. The ocean looks HUGE and reminded me of just how BIG our God really is to have created all this. I took a book, a journal and spent most of my time having an awesome conversation with God. I saw how 4 couples came and laid their blankets and picnic baskets and enjoyed time with each other. I thought I would feel hurt knowing that I did not have my H with me, as they had each other but I wasn't. I actually felt joy in my heart to see them so much in love. I even witnessed a WEDDING!!! I believe God was showing me what I need to look forward to. BUT for today, I spent my "love" day with Him. I watched the sunset and took a few pictures of it. It truly was awesome. I thought of my H through out the day but it was all good memories that made me smile. I was the only one sitting there by myself (and it did not bother me at all) 'cause I knew that God was with me and that's all that mattered. I don't know how my H is even doing, but I sure hope that he thought of me today (at least just remembered). God is working and I am so thankful for everything he has done for me.

Thank you all for your prayers.
