After much suffering, I am finally taking a stand against my abusive ex to ask for protection for myself and children. I am afraid of the battle that I know will ensue and afraid of the "can of worms" that I may be opening, but I am praying for God's protection and favor. I will finally be moving my divorce/custody case from Texas to Oklahoma where we reside. The fight will be in my back yard now... I'm afraid for the ex to cause problems here too. He threatens me constantly and tells the kids that he will come take them so I never see them again. Remember, I am the custodial parent for a reason... he harrasses, threatens, and stalks us. My restraining order does no good. He mistreats the children and has literally endangered their lives on many occasions. He refuses to take care of them like an adult and has had doctors call CPS on him.
I am writing regarding a very special Christian named J.D. Beam. He was an awesome Christian man and veteran who despite his many physical ailments never complained and loved God dearly. He has a son who is a disabled veteran and not much else in family. The VA is only covering a small portion of the burial expenses and there is approximately another $2000 we are trying to raise. I need prayer that we will get the funds to bury him. His body has been at a mortuary in Fayetteville since January 31st. God bless all those willing to pray for the fund raising and to those willing to donate.
Recently my wife had Croup in January and was on the ventilator for 4 days to help her breathe. In February she was having difficulties breathing and come to find out her vocal cords are not working like they are suppose to. Please keep her and myself in your prayers. I haven't been to work in over a week, and it's hurting us financially. God bless.
I am blessed with a great life; my family are wonderful! But there's somthing missing, the fulfillment of a career. I have a part-time job that barely helps get us by and I enjoy it, but sometimes I find myself lost in open time I have in the day, a feeling of helplessness and isolation engulfs me and the intentions I had of doing good for the world become overcome by my worries of myself and what is happening in my life. I both love and hate routine. I guess what I'm trying to say is, I need Christ to open my eyes to my potential and allow me to find fulfillment through mentoring, volunteer work, school, or just a new job opportunity. Pray He will help me make those new connections and reach out and grasp everyday as if it is my last.
Sunday we got up early and were ready and excited to go try a new church. I grabbed my purse and and realized my wallet was gone. I asked my 4 young boys and apparently my 5 year old had it outside on Saturday after I got home from work. No one saw him with it except the neighbor kid. He had $150 in there from selling his baby pigs that his PawPaw gave him and he was trying to get his money out to put in his piggy bank. He showed us where he left it and it wasn't there. We have looked everywhere! I prayed that its just lost and that we find it soon or if one of our neighbors took it I pray that God convicts their heart and they choose to give it back.
