Marriage

Miracles Do Happen

In late October of 2007, I was challenged by someone to begin a blog. I had one a few years prior to starting my current one, but just decided it wasn’t for me. So when I began my blog almost eight months ago, I had no idea I’d have as much fun with it and at the exact same time, follow my calling. During the week of December 16th, I decided to share what my husband and I have endured in our marriage. I have a precious friend who told me I should. (Thanks, Robin.) I received more website hits and comments during that five-day period than I would have ever imagined. Many of you linked your sites to mine to help me share the story. (Thanks especially to Anne.) I know that many new readers have come to my website since that time. You may be reading my blog regularly and have no idea what my husband I have walked through. I’d like to direct your attention to the links to the right under “Quick Links.” There are five posts that I wrote called “Our Story”. If you have not read them, I encourage you to do so. You may be experiencing something similar or might know someone else who is. I’ve been honored over these last several months to communicate with numbers of people about our story. Most of the people I’ve never met.
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.                      2 Corinthians 1:3-4
God is so, so good. Wouldn’t you agree?

  1. Yes, I do! I’m often asked to tell “my story” from my first marriage – when my husband walked out when I was only a few weeks pregnant – how I walked in forgiveness – and how God healed my broken heart. To be honest, I do tire of the story, because I feel it is so far behind me now. But recently, a pastor asked me to shoot a video for a series he was doing called “Healed Without Scars” telling my story. I kind of sighed initially and procrastinated with it. But, someone told me to imagine that the person on the other side of the camera has just been left – or is a single mom – whatever the case may be – and let her hear your story and know that God is good. And, He is! Thank you for sharing yours – and for your husband allowing you to tell it. That, in itself, speaks volumes.

  2. “you are not a fool to stay and be a part of the redemptive work in a man’s life.”

    This is why I come here everyday.

    (although our circumstances are different) the healing is so much the same.Somedays are harder than others, but I know that God is doing His work.

    I, like you serve an “AWESOME” God.

    Isn’t awesome that He is the “same” God that is going to heal Paul.

    I stand on that DAILY!!

  3. Thank you for sharing your story because like me I’m sure there are many women who feel/felt like they are the only ones.

  4. I am one of those readers that found you through Anne. You might not want to thank her too fast. LOL

    What a blessing you and your story have been to me. I found others through you also. Other wonderful women. Now in just a few short weeks I will be stalking you in your homes. LOL

    Thank you so much for restarting a blog. I can’t imagine all the people that read your story and your other posts and feel comfort that someone out there understands.

    It is amazing the individual ministry opportunities that pop up in the blogging world.

  5. I don’t recall how it was I found you but it was your story that kept me coming back. My wife and I are also experiencing a redemptive miracle in our marriage as the Lord has delivered me from a nearly life-long pornography addiction. Your story spoke right to my heart and has helped a great deal in understanding the impact something like this has on a spouse. Thank you for your courage to share it with the world.

  6. I would SO agree! You know the road that Andy and I had to endure, but man…can I just say THANK GOD we did! It’s amazing how He just holds your hand and let’s you walk the toughest roads for all the RIGHT reasons! At the time, we haven’t a clue WHY this is happening…but PRAISE GOD it did!

    Thank you Cindy for YOU! Thank you for all you did for ME! Love ya Girl!

  7. i am praying “that i get to be a part of a redemptive work in a man’s life”. even though our circumstances are very different and my husband has left & filed for divorce, i’m still asking God to allow me to be a part of my husband’s healing.

    i so appreciate that you’ve told your story. i think i’ve said it before, we all need to be telling our stories…it proves how GREAT God is.

  8. I think I actually read your story or part of it on someone else’s blog, if that’s possible. Regardless of how I latched on, I did and I’m so glad. You have such a positive outlook; it gives me great encouragement.

  9. Yes! He is very good!

    And I am blessed to have “met” you Cindy! You are a blessing and inspiration.

    Love you!

  10. Cindy,
    God sent you to me and so many others as a light of hope and strength. When I did’nt think anyone could understand my pain, you did. Thank you for listening to God.

  11. I happened to come across your blog (thanks to Melanie Snare) the week you were telling y’all’s story. That same week my husband and I found out some good friends of ours were separated and filing for divorce. It was so refreshing to read about a couple who had had similar problems and pull through. God sure has good timing.

  12. i so value and appreciate your transparency and openness. as well as your husbands. i have so much respect for you both…
