  1. Sarah, Ryan and I are so sorry to hear what you are going through. Let me know if there is anything we can do.

    • thanks Pam. I really appreciate you reaching out like this. I love hearing from friends (both near and far). God’s people are never out of my reach. Pray diligently for Josh…and all of us of course! I gotta just give it over to God. Miss you guys.

  2. Though every check mark is another valley to walk through, how amazing is it that God, through dreams, visions, and just every day happenings, continues to provide His manna?! It may be difficult for you to see in the fog, but I can clearly see that the Lord has a GREAT plan for this journey. We are all praying and lifting you and the family up daily, including J. Praise be to God for His unending provision and love. Continue to run this race with confidence and do not stumble. “So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so when you have done the will of God you will received what He has promised.” Hebrews 10:35-36 God has promised GREAT things and His promises never fail!

    • I feel loved, for sure! I actually saw you and your kiddos in target…yesterday?….but I wasn’t quite feeling like having “this” conversation at the store, as much as I wanted to hug you and cry all over your groceries…:-/ Prayers are HUGELY appreciated though. thank you!

  3. Only bit of hope I can offer is that Lotion Kleenex is awesome and worth the extra cost. That and I’m praying for you.

  4. Dearest Sarah,one of the things that helped me most throughout the entire process of divorce was embracing the grieving process and not pushing back on it. Next, teaching my son how to grieve.

    I took a semester course in this process which was profound to put the application processes into place. Next, the LORD assisted us in the process of forgiveness.

    Years later, when we received a call from my former husband to ask our forgiveness ~ it was so easy because the LORD had already prepared us for the call we never expected to receive.

    I completely understand your wanting him back. My heart ached for Randy to return ~ he never did. What I did not know was he was very busy with his continued drinking which led to drug abuse and later Cocaine. The LORD literally had saved us from a tragic life with him.

    20 years later, when Ryan had received his 98% scholarship to college my former husband called to say, ” Cheryl, I am so thankful you did not stick around and wait for me as I was looking for someone to destroy and it obviously was not going to be you.”

    Another approach, replace him as soon as possible…(did i say that?)

  5. Praying for you right now, Sarah. I have no words, just prayers for you, that God will comfort and protect you in the days ahead. You are often on my heart, and in these dark times, I pray that God alone will be your beacon of light and strength.

    • Thanks Jill. God is my comfort…but He doesn’t seem to want me to not feel my emotions….so I emote and am comforted at the same time which sounds weird when I say it but….makes sense in my soul. Your constant prayers are appreciated more than you know.
