No matter what you think of Jesus, history doesn’t deny he and walked the Earth and felt human pain. During the discord the divorce brings, I find myself torn from my regular homely places, resting in the guest room, my friends couch, or napping in the car while out. The tension at home while working through spousal disagreements – sharing soap and dishes and couches becomes unbearable somehow, despite having lived together many years. Neither I or my spouse will leave our home or the children, as advised by lawyers, until things are settled.
How painful – to live with your counterpart as you negotiate assets and a new, separate life. If you’re in this situation, I wish you peace and hope for a new comfortable home life, wherever that may be – and the endurance needed till that happens.
Best Bet: Keep seeking places that bring you peace and comfort till things get worked out.
