I now see God in my entire story. The loss, the lessons, the love. It was all there. My love story with my Heavenly Father. Uniquely mine. I now can thank Him for His silence and His deliverance while I was in my darkness.
I lived the verse Hebrews 12:15…Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled. I had bitterness spring up and it defiled me and my family. There is no way to be bitter and not hurt those around you.
Looking back I am so thankful that we took our vows seriously. Our vows were not only a promise to each other but a covenant with God. Though each of us has failed to be what we should, we did not give up.
