Prayers for my wife and me, please...
« on: August 07, 2007, 08:13:39 PM »
Hard times... Our parish is likely to move to West Point, MS (~30 miles from our home), and my unbelieving (?) wife does not want to come to DLs with me. Difficult emotional conversations. Please pray...

Lord, have mercy!

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Lord have mercy!!  I also am in the same boat as you and I know how difficult and disheartening it is to have a spouse who does not share your belief.  Keep praying and with God's grace your wife will join you in your faith.  Amen.
