Fifi and I ended our relationship today. It was a wonderful month we had together; we shared some rather intense and beautiful  experiences. It was her decision to end it. As usual when it comes to matters of the heart, I am devastated. At the same time I worry for her, because I feel as if I was the only solid and trustworthy support she could rely on at this stage in her life.

Please pray that God's will be done and that His Grace guide the both of us to acquiesce to that Will in peace and understanding. Pray that God guide me to deal with this break-up a whole lot better than I have previous break-ups. Heart-break has always been my weakest point. Pray that the Lord protect Fifi always and that He give her the strength and wisdom to emerge from this rough page in her life safely, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

Thank you for your prayers. Fee and I have resolved the issue at the root of our break-up and are back together again. I would much appreciate your continued prayers that God's will remain operative within this relationship despite our respective shortcomings, and that it always be apprehended and properly responded to by the both of us.

Wow, I don't know what to say. Just when I thought we had recovered, she seems prepared to end it again in less than 2 weeks. This is really confusing and hurting, especially since the situation seems to make very little sense to me. It is not that she is too emotionally immature to make up her mind about she feels about this and/or me; she has gone through alot and I understand the various pressures that are draining her from all angles, but I can't for the life of me understand why it would affect us given that i've gone out of my way to support and encourage her and have done my best to give her something to be happy about it. Why is this happening to me AGAIN?! Your continued prayers please...
