Filing for divorce

"I'm always aware that there are children watching me throughout this divorce.." says Bonnie Keen. "They are watching what I do with my grief, what I do with my anger, what I do with my ex-spouse..."

Papers filed yesterday. God the strength of my heart. It's taken me 5 months of being able to, to reach this point. A process.

Whatever your stance on divorce I didn't feel condemned doing it. The timing felt right.

I recognise now in the last few weeks I've grieved the loss, the part of us that was great. It had to be done, it's horrible sitting on the fence, torn between the two.

On Thursday night it was like I suddenly sat upright and knew what to do. I have to cross this bridge now.
On Friday I filled in the necessary paperwork, got it signed in front of a JP, made the required copies and sent it away, all very matter of factly.

The future awaits. I'm not sure what it holds, but have hope and know everything's going to be alright in Christ!

"For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you a future and hope" Jeremiah 29v 11

Good for you Becs! This was obviously a hard decision for you and I think we all know it was done with a lot of prayer.
You are a God girl and so if anyone judges or condemns you they need a big smack! Even if a smack is illegal- hehe!
