Nana Holds from Coffee Hour @ Chickilt Power

Coffee Hour!

Thank you so much for joining me today for a little break and more of “Nana Holds.” Grab your coffee and come on in.

Let’s see, where did we leave off? Oh, that’s right, in our living room, reminding Bryce that he needed to deal with the root of the habits because just changing locations won’t make the problems go away.

Looking back on that time now, I honestly believe he wanted to come home because, first, he wanted help; and, second, he believed that coming home would make it easier to break the habits that were threatening to ruin his life and take away anything and anyone important to him.

So, we set a tentative date for him to come back home, just two weeks later. I remember breathing a sigh of relief, thankful for a couple more weeks of our carefree life and marriage. I know, that sounds a bit selfish so I won’t even try to hide it behind more words; however, I will say that I began to pray in earnest over this situation. Not that my upcoming suffering and sacrificing could compare in any way to our Christ, but I did sort of repeat some words that He cried out to His and our Father before enduring His crucifixion; I asked Him for an escape and I confessed my fears about how Bryce’s coming home would affect our marriage; but I have to add, and then I surrendered to His will, not mine.

Two weeks later, when Bryce was supposed to be moving back home, he called his dad and told him he needed another week. I don’t even remember the reason he gave, just that he would be moving in the following week. I remember feeling a check in my spirit that collided with more relief, some guilt over that relief, but again, an ultimate surrender to His will.

That week turned into another week, and then another and we actually began to think he had changed his mind; and then, low and behold, I came home one day to find our garage looking a bit cluttered and stuff in the entryway, the hallway upstairs and I heard the sound of dresser drawers being opened and closed – loudly, I might add! 🙂

Join me tomorrow for more of this transition leading to Nana holding baby Bryden.

Transparently,
