Praying for you and your family. emoticon

Dorothy

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.
Charles Stanley

For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in

LISA ITS VERY SAD TO HEAR WHEN A SON AND FATHER CANT BE IN THE SAME HOUSE .
IT HAPPENED IN MY HOUSE ALSO AS MY DAUGHTERS WERE GROWING UP BUT AS I WAS TOLD ONCE I WAS QUITE BUT CARRIED A BIG STICK I WAS THE MEDIATOR AND MY HUBBY TRIED TO PULL THE HEAD OF THE HOUSE WITH ME TOO.
AS FAR AS I'M CONCERN THIER IS NO HEAD OF HOUSE WHEN WERE BOTH PULLING TOGETHER TO KEEP A ROOF OVER THE FAMILY'S HEADS .GOOD LUCK

Lisa my heart goes out to you right now. You have always been supportive and encouraging to me and I wish I had an "easy" button...but I don't. I will keep you and the family in prayers, especially your husband and that God will change his heart towards your son. While he may be the "head of the household", that doesn't mean that he's right! If what he's doing goes directly against God's teaching then you do not have to "submit" to what's going on. However, the bottom line is that, even though we are all offering advise, and maybe have been through similar situations, none of us truly knows what it's like to be walking in your shoes. I'm in agreement that you should speak with your pastor, and is the marriage counselor a born again christian?
As for the eating, I'm not in any position to give advice. Since I've been unable to access the computer to track food & exercise I've gained 12 lbs. since the beginning of the year, due to emotional eating. As I said, I will keep you in my prayers and please email any time you need to talk.

Lisa, I am so sorry and I am praying for you and your family. I have been through similar struggles with my husband (although our children are girls). Fathers can be so pig-headed and we as mothers want so much to have peace and tranquility in our houses. Please let us know how you are doing. Take care of yourself and God will see you through this.

Oh Lisa I'm so sorry. I hope the marriage counseling help. Yes your husband does need to forgive and let go. I have trouble responding to he's the head of the household and he comes first. Our Lord and Savior comes first and our children are a gift from him.. Please write often we are hear to listen and please keep us posted.
Love in Christ

I took my son out for his birthday last night and had cake. My eating choices have been less than good!


This has been a very stressful week for me and I am
struggling with emotional eating.
I'm having some marriage problems and my husband and son are not interacting well.
How does a mother choose?
I feel like whatever side I take the other will be hurt.
My husband says there is no choice! He is the head of this household.
My son can't even be at my house when my husband is home. I'm so stressed out!

In the past several years ago my son( he was 13 or 14 at the time) did something inapropriate.

My husband is a christian and said he forgave him.
my son is 21 today. My husband can't seem to let go of the past.

Guys i need a little support .
I'm feeling Very hurt and Empty inside.
My husband and i are suppose to start marriage counseling next week Saturday.

I don't want to stuff every thing i can in my mouth and I have worked to hard.
But all i seem to do is cry and eat!
Yesterday i had close to 3000 calories !
HELP!

emoticon

Love Prayers and Blessings
Lisa
