Travel Plans = Stress
Tomorrow, my 22 yr old only-nephew gets married down in Conyers Ga. We will be leaving early in the morning and come home Sunday afternoon. I have 1 brother, his wife and I are great friends, I am going for her. NONE of my family has ever met my daughter, the last time we saw anyone, Colin was 18 mos. My mother and father cut all ties with me 6 yrs ago, she died a year later and my father carried on the tradition. My father will be there just for the wedding. My brother does not speak to me either, he can't understand why I don't contact our father. I have tried.....he does not respond. My 2 aunts and a cousin will be there and I will be thrilled to see them.....my SIL's family will be there and they can't wait to see me. I turned my family situation over to the Lord years ago.......but when something like this comes up it's like huge waves of hurt and anger sweep over me. I will behave myself.....but inside I will be a wreck. I will make it through this, I have my husband and my kids to lead me......and as always, Jesus has my back! So if you would, please just say a short "Keep them safe Lord" prayer for my family this weekend as we travel.
