Facebook Memories….you know the thing that pops up every morning that reminds you of your past? I never deleted my “married” past off of my Facebook. It is something I just never thought of doing. So there are days that I wake up and see some pretty awesome memories of when we, at least, looked like a happy family.
Yesterday the memories came across the timeline, and it reminded me of an Anniversary. The 3rd anniversary of the divorce. The day the judge so coldly and almost angrily told me that the marriage I spent 13 years creating was no longer existent.
Just like that, Over.
This year I felt a bit different as I had the previous 2 years before. While doing my morning devotions, the song Amazing Grace kept going through my mind.
‘Tis Grace has brought me safe thus far….
Funny, when I first decided to name my blog this, I named it because of….
and Grace will lead me home…
This morning, it hit me. Grace has brought me safe thus far. I am so grateful. For this journey. For the deserts. Even for the unanswered prayers. Sometimes it is hard to see God’s plan for your life, other days he makes it clear.
Anyway, today I was grateful. For the Memories, Good and Bad. I am grateful for the years I got to be married. Grateful for the two blessings he gave me and for the time I get to spend with them. I am grateful for my faithfulness in the marriage. I am grateful for the love and respect that I gave him. I am grateful for Unconditional Love.
So, Thank You Facebook Memories! Thank you for reminding me of the good days and even in the midst of one of the worst days of my entire life that Grace still leads me home!
