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, 

Amy

    “I need to call my friend and have lunch, it’s been way too long!” I think this and then forget. Does this ever happen to you? I regret this happening to me all too much in the past 7 years. Since I got married and had kids life is like one big tornado! My excuses are that I’m just too tired tonight, or I can’t because this week is crazy, my kids have too many activities, or my husband works a lot and I feel guilty taking the time, plus I just can’t spend the money. Any of these sound familiar? The thing is what if that person is no longer there to call? Read More
