I received the divorce papers in the mail and I can't help but feel angry. Who is he to walk out on this marriage and leave me a single mother with four children? But the thing that makes me the maddest is that he left me with the responsibility of two car notes and all the bills with a part time job!!! What right does he have to leave me with the burden of paying for two cars while he went out and got another car? Why didn't he just take over the note on his truck that is sitting in my driveway?!
I'm trying to be patient with all of this and see what God's plan is for me. I take comfort in the fact that I will be in church tomorrow and after that I am going to pick up my three oldest kids from their dad. It's so hard to deal with all of this and not know what lies ahead. But the Bible tells us: "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go" (Joshua 1:9).
