Divorce

So, many of you already know that Mark and I are headed for a divorce. This isn't something that I ever wanted, but I have Biblical grounds for a divorce, and he is giving me an "easy out." One thing that God is teaching me through all of this is to trust in Him. It is HUGE and has to be at the center of everything in my life. At this point, I know that Mark will have NO unsupervised visitation with the children due to his pending domestic violence charges. I am okay with that as he (nor his family) is stable enough to care for the children. It has been a huge undertaking for me, as I have to carry a large burden, but I am willing to do it for the safety of my children. I didn't always have these views, and for a long time was allowing the children to go out to Mark's parents house. I had to find out the hard way, that I wasn't making a wise choice. Your prayers are appreciated in this time. If you want to be praying specifically for us:
  • Strength and courage for me at this time
  • Least amount of strain on the children
  • God's will be done
