Our Marriage

Our marriage is under attack. I see it so clearly now. I was naive to think that our "period of purgation" would be over at Christmas... this is going to be a loooooong process.

I unfortunately cannot delve into too much detail here. It's not fair to my husband or to us. At the core, our marriage is strong and bulletproof. I have faith that we can survive this, but the necessary steps have to take place first. And that is where we are under attack.

We need your prayers more than ever before. Continued prayers. We are discerning where God wants us to be, and some drastic, drastic changes may take place. It is scary, and exciting, full of anticipation and trepidation at the same time.

My goal, and my prayer is that by the end of 2012, we will both be healthy and joyful, our marriage will be stronger than ever... and we will be completely transformed.

Please pray for us.

You and R are in my daily prayers! I know that you will come through this time of trial stronger and better for it.

Definitely!

So I had a thought. You know we all love you and want to support you in any way we can. What would you think about posting a novena (for your marriage) on your blog that all of us readers could pray along with you? Of course we can pray on our own, but if we were all praying the same thing for a while, it would be the virtual version of "where two or three are gathered in my name." :)

Thoughts?

I pray for you and R so often. It is wonderful to know that you have a strong marriage and are serious about its purgation. You will be an invincible couple, if you already aren't!

Praying for you...didn't you go to a WWME weekend? Do you still dialoge with your dh? When my dh and I feel some disconnect we start doing that again and we have "family" each night for about 30 mins where we just talk about our day....we're so busy being teachers it's easy to us forget about our marriage.

Being Refined said...

Prayers coming your way!!! (Though I do pray for you almost daily.)

I love Polkadots idea! I would join in a Novena for your marriage! I don't know who the Patron Saint of marriages is... I'll go look. ;)
Found: St Valentine, St Raphael Archangel, St John Francis Regis and St Edward the Confessor. (in no particular order). I'm surprised St Joseph isn't on that list.
