In my past, this has not been a scripture I have lived well. More on this later.
I’ve come to realize the importance of being part of the solution and not part of the problem. I know it takes two, but I now know what a marriage represents and my responsibility in helping to make it successful.
Husbands love your wife as Christ loves His Church.
I filed for divorce and in the process got custody of my son. In the spirit of transparency, I felt a lot prouder about that fact then, than I do now. There are NO winners in this horribly painful experience.
Life as a single dad in the Marine Corps was anything but easy. Yes, I had some really good friends, but I didn’t have any family close by.
As I write this, I think back to what I wrote about my friends while initially going through the separation process. How they were very helpful in keeping me upright, and they were still there, but the responsibility is now different. My son is my responsibility and though they still helped, their help didn’t relieve the great amount of responsibility I felt. I was now experiencing a new level of real.
Father and son…learning to live life.
