Custody case
« on: May 10, 2014, 11:04:18 PM »
By the end of the month I'll have an outcome (if all goes as planned) concerning my sons and custody. Please pray for us, that things move fast, go well and that no more issues arise.

Lord, have mercy!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Lord have mercy.
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai

It is all over! My kids are in my sole custody as of yesterday, AND I have been given sole decision making power to their religious upbringing as ordered by the judge, too.

The Lord be praised, that's wonderful news. ;D
