Never Too Far Gone
0 3

We got a call from Carmella.

She wanted to hear the thought from Mr. Rogers that was shared just a moment ago. In a trembling voice she shared that things were not going well and it felt hopeless between her and her husband.

At that very moment I felt so connected to a woman I had never met. Inside, I was saying a prayer that God would give me the words that he wanted her to hear. "Help me to not say too much—but to say enough to help her draw closer to you God." I wrote her a note:

"Carmella, I just wish I could reach through the computer and give you a big hug."

My husband and I were on the verge of totally giving up last year about this time. I really thought everything had gone too far for too long to come back together. Things that wouldn’t normally annoy me---suddenly became amplified. I went to a divorce attorney. 

I prayed that God would help me to love my husband again. I realized without Him---there was NO WAY this was happening. Even in the midst of praying this –I didn’t believe it myself---I didn’t believe my own words. But I just kept praying for God’s help in changing the way I spoke to my husband, the way I thought about him, encouraged him, loved him. He changed my heart. 

“Love him through this.” One of the best pieces of wisdom a friend said to me.

Love to you sweet Carmella,

    It feels as if more and more tragedy is invading our lives and the news. Love this reminder from Ann Voskamp: After Paris, the calendar says it, that Advent cusps, that now the days will get shorter and the night will get longer and longer and longer, till it seems like the night’s invading the day —- and then Grace with skin will invade everything. Then the Greatest Gift will be born and we will remember another world and Home and our true names and how there is nothing ever to fear. Read More
