I had a to present in New Braunfels this morning at 7:30 for some coaches who could use extra income (imagine that) but I quickly found out that that is not why I was meant to wake up at 6:00 AM on this COLD COLD COLD morning! I awoke very groggy, stumbled to the bathroom, put in my contacts, and smelled coffee that my dear sweet husband had set the timer for and IT.WAS.READY!! As I stood in our not-warm-enough kitchen I did the next very obvious thing that most do: I checked my facebook! That's when it hit me. A horrible dread came out of no where. I was on my face in my kitchen on the cold cold tile and tears were pouring down my face uncontrollably at a rate that I could not stop. I read the status of a dear sweet man that I knew from my church when I was in high school that read (I'm just giving you a paraphrase) "We are getting a divorce...tried to pray and work it out for the past four months." and i'm done for. They have a daughter who is just a few years younger than I was when I heard the news of my parents divorce. Not only that! This couple is my inspiration! They are an example I use in my own life to remind me that not all marriages fail! I don't know the circumstances for theirs but I know that prayer works and that God hates divorce. I got ready quickly, headed down the stairs to my freeeeeezing car, turned on my praise CD, and mourned and prayed and grieved for this family as I drove from the Onion Creek exit on 35 to San Marcos. That is when the frenzy began. I had my hand up in my car and I prayed for every single one of your marriages. I prayed for those of you who aren't married and might be married at some point. I prayed for their daughter.I realized that the reason I got up this morning and got to drive by myself was so that I could be reminded of how sacred my marriage is to Kyle! I could not WAIT to get home to that man and hold him and tell him how much I love him (and I prayed of him too!) If anyone needs prayer today send them my way! My heart is stirred like nothing before and I know that it was time for this spiritual awakening in me. I want you to know that your marriage matters to me! I am asking that you pray for my marriage and that you would pray with me that the Lord would intervene in the life of this sweet family.
Thank you! (and a coach signed up)
