And then it was just another day.
Yesterday marked the anniversary of my divorce decree. The strange thing is that I had completely forgotten about that fact until today.
In fact, I only remembered because I got engaged to Mrs. DM the day following my year anniversary of the divorce. I saw a picture reminding me of that happy day.
Then I remembered. Oh, yeah. Yesterday was my divorce anniversary.
It felt just like any other Monday.
I share this an encouragement to those of you in the trenches today. You cannot imagine not remembering your divorce day. It has been that traumatic and painful.
If you had spoken to me one or two years ago, I probably would have thought I never would forget my divorce day anniversary either. Yet here I am. Four years removed.
Life has moved on from that painful event and season.
In fact, my life today is so full and fulfilling that I failed to remember the day I was declared divorced from a cheater on the day itself!
It only took me four years to get to this place.
I don’t know how long it will take you, faithful spouse, to join me in this place. In fact, it is okay if you never do get here.
And there is no shame in grieving a marriage traumatically lost as that just means you were deeply invested in that marriage.
And remember: grief does not operate on a deadline.
But I am thankful for my forgetfulness yesterday. It is a testimony to what God has done in my life. And if He can do that for me, He can do it for you as well!
