A Broken Relationship

I don't think that there is too many more things that can hurt as bad
as a divorce, the breaking up of a family.  A friend told me, death is
easier than that and, I tend to agree with her.

A Broken Relationship Soft tears rolled down her cheeks as she rolled over to face his back, for she knew in her heart so deep that a love for her he did lack. She had felt the relationship break with the husband of her youth, but how can it be Lord? He is father of my children but, all the while she knew. She thought, they used to be so happy when in their youth walking hand in hand, thinking nothing could touch them when their love brought them wedding bands. Yes, they had spats and arguments along the way, but thinking nothing so great that away from her his love would stray. Then physical abuse and threatening from his mouth, came and changed this fair romance from what it once was all about. So with tears streaming don her face and a heart that was broken completely in two, wondering Lord, will I ever be loved again will I ever be able to say I do? When he found his excuse to leave stating because of her belief in Jesus the King of Kings, he said, “it’s either God or me, you can’t have both,” so she chose to give up her once precious wedding ring. For she knew no man is so important as harmony with God, and she wanted to commune with Him forever and to walk with Him on Heaven’s sod. Yet though my life has not been so perfect since I’ve given up my wedding ring, I have peace with my Father, joy with His Spirit and love from Jesus Christ, my King. And now, the painful hurting memories my Precious Lord did take, and replaced them with some fond remembrances all of His Wonderful Name’s sake. Written by: Marilyn Jennings

Forty lines of Bold Accusing Fingers at The Dissembling Male Lover. Broken Relationship is about a married man's negative surprises for his once beloved spouse now a breaker of Solemn marriage vows, soon a wife-beater with God-challenging excuses.

Hello Marilyn Jennings, It is too bad in the marriage you found out his true self. There is nothing wrong in loving God. He created us. We are his children. Too bad you did not find out his true self early in the marriage. Blessings my friend.

the lustful mind never feels happy in marriage; marriage is the bond of divinity between two souls~
