That Fateful Day
This day begins for her, like none she has ever
known in her life. All days previous to this one have been hard fought
in pursuit of what she believed was paramount for a quality of life. It
was not within her character to give in, but to press in, to get fired
up, not to give up, but today she is not rising to victory, nor soaring
with eagles, today she is bowing to defeat. Today she has made the
decision not to hold on any longer, but to let go.
For the past several months she has seen her
marriage progressively disintegrate and no attempt has slowed its
demise. The last year for her has been a Job like experience, one
devastating event after another. She has been a student of the bible her
entire life, raised by Christian parents, has seen the promises written
there for those who believe, has cried to God anguishing over the
turmoil which has enveloped her. Where is Godís mercy, why is He
allowing her life to continue?
Reluctantly she grants his request for separation.
She knew that they received their marriage license at the county
courthouse, so being uncertain about how to the process works in
obtaining a divorce; she thought that would be the place to start and
said ďletís go to the courthouse and seek how to get a
agreed with her decision thinking he has finally won this fight.
They decided to ride together in the same car to
the courthouse to finding out which direction they should go. He was in the
driverís seat; she was sitting directly to his right. Pulling out of
the driveway, they turned correctly heading into the right direction.
The only sound being made was by the car, the motorís roar and tires
hitting pavement, other wise, silence.
Wanting to break the silence,
she reached over, put her hand to the radio and turned it on. It was at
that point God
On that day, at that spot in the road, in the spring
of 1991, Retha and I know with out any doubt, that God intervened and
changed our lives forever. The telling of our testimony of what happened
that day and everyday since then, has also effected the lives of
many others we have told our stories to and we would love sharing it
with you as well.
So many people struggle in life not feeling they
have the complete assurance they are in the will of God. Retha and I
absolutely know that is what God wants us all to walk in. To have the
complete assurance of being in His will.
It is our prayer that you experience the fullness
of all that God has for you.
Dana & Retha
