“Let my mom go, or I’ll put a bullet right between your eyes,”
and with those words, my abuser turned me loose.
The hardest words I’ve ever had to say tore from my throat. You’ve been fighting for a long time, you don’t have to fight anymore. You can leave whenever you’re ready. As soon as the words left my lips, my life changed forever, and my marriage of thirty-two years was over. I watched my husband leave my arms, and disappear into the arms of God.
God took my hand and walked with me, one step at a time, and I learned that life goes on. Being desperate and lonely, I turned to the Internet dating sites. Putting the mouse over just the right spot, I clicked “Send,” and the sweet talker from the south entered my life. After a whirlwind romance we were married. On our wedding night I was shocked to discover that I had married an abuser.
Do you know how to spot an abuser? Can you see the warning signs, before you, or someone you love, gets involved? Before it’s too late?
Walk with me, and we’ll laugh, cry, share, and learn together. Be there, as God takes my hand, and leads me on a journey, from a twice broken heart, to contentment in Him.
