Melt Down~

Well....what a complete and utter meltdown I had today~ It was not pretty, pleasant and really not like me....But nevertheless~ It happened. I have been in the throws of the worst flare that I have had in over a year...and I am scheduled to give a deposition in my brother's divorce case~ He knows I am very sick but that means nothing to anyone in my family....They are just determined to be vindictive towards my sister-in-law. It is so very disheartening that "professing Christians" should behave this way. But less I digress~ I ended up telling his attorneys office off...yep, I did ~ They could not understand that I have a doctor's note....that I am willing to comply ...once well~ Because I have nothing to hide....No they kept pushing my buttons until I blew up and told them in no uncertain terms that their client my brother was well aware that I was sick and that if they persisted I would get my own attorney~ And then I got off the phone and cried...You see family is everything too me and for them to continue to behave in this manner when Tom and I have always been there for all of them is heartbreaking~ Why? All because we stood up for what is right and would not condone my brother's affair! So .....I am calmer now having taken this before the Lord...Because He knows where I am at ....God knows my heart and I know that Tom and I made the right decision to stand with Chris and help her with the children. As for my family I must continue to release them to the Lord~

ROMANS 12:2
DON'T COPY THE BEHAVIOR AND CUSTOMS OF THIS WORLD, BUT LET GOD TRANSFORM YOU INTO A NEW PERSON BY CHANGING THE WAY YOU THINK. THEN YOU WILL LEARN TO KNOW GOD'S WILL FOR YOU, WHICH IS GOOD AND PLEASING AND PERFECT.

Aw, praying for you sweetie! Hope it turns better soon... but I know how that goes. It's so frustrating when family gets like that.

I'm sorry you are having such a rough time right now. I just wanted to stop by and thank you for coming over to my blog and leaving an encouraging comment! I love to hear from moms who have been there and done that and can reassure me that "this too shall pass." Come by any time!
