A marriage redeemed

"There's some one else. I'm in love with her. I want a divorce."

Those dreaded words had come out of my husband's mouth just a few days before. I spent the weekend trying to convince him otherwise.

After another afternoon of me trying again to talk to him, he decided to go outside and play with our two older kids. 

As soon as he walked outside, I cried out, "Oh God, what do I do?" His answer came quick and it brought me to tears. "Let him go." I replied, "I don't want to!" In His infinite knowledge of today and tomorrow, He said again, "Let him go."

Thank you :) I wish I could say that my hope never wavered through our trial, but the truth is that there were times when I felt completely lost. My over-riding feeling was, though, that He is bigger than anything I could experience, and that always got me through the really difficult times. Thank you for your encouragement :)
