Cross #12.880

Miramar, FL

My sister gave me this cross. She gave it to me a few days after my husband abandoned me, my daughter and our home. She told me the meaning behind the cross and I accepted it with joy and love.

My husband, on Dec. 31st, 2014, right before our New Years eve get together in our home with family, told me that he didn’t love me anymore. That he wasn’t in love with me and that he wasn’t happy. Before this conversation he showed no signs what-so-ever of not being in love or unhappy. Our daughter was almost 19 months and to me we had an amazing marriage and life. Not perfect but amazing. Our love story has been a fairy tale. We met in highschool and I wasn’t allowed to have a boyfriend. Fell for him at 14 years old when he would tell me that we would be married 1 day. We dated briefly after highschool but with a strict father that I had he didn’t want to deal with too many rules. We were 18 years old. After 2 years of not hearing from him at all he returned. My heart was so joyful. I hadn’t had another boyfriends during this time. I concentrated on school, work and church. We were married 2 years later totally and completely in love.
This year has started out for me with my heart completely broken. More tears this year in 2015 and we haven’t even hit March yet. I pray for my husband. That God brings him back to Him. And I pray for restoration of my marriage. I was served with Divorce papers yesterday. I’m still praying. And I’m still hopeful. I’m also praying that God helps me to acceptHis will no matter what. This has been very difficult for me and my family who have loved him for the 9 years that has chosen to be part of our family. Hope is what has kept me going. I know that God is in control. He has a plan.
