This morning there's no school in my county so I left my six year old home with my 15 year old. I no more than walked in the door at work and I get this from the former wife (she is so bitter):

Amber: Are you dropping Allison off?
Me: No
Amber: Who's watching her?
Me: Becca
Amber: Does she want to keep her all day or just this morning?
Me: She's taken care of. You don't have to worry.
Amber: The court orders say my moms supposed to provide child care.
Me: Turn me in, Put me in jail. Take my kids away. I've done nothing wrong. Did you pray this morning? I prayed for you. And him. Some day you'll see I love you more than anyone you've surrounded yoursefl with. The Bible says if you resist the devil he will flee. The devil tells you it's ok to get divorced, it's ok to be with another man, it's ok to drink and get drunk. It's all lies though. He's the father of lies. You've got to resist. I only fight for you because I know you're a good person caught up in bad things. You went to church forever. You know this stuff. I think you are worth saving. Otherwise I would just give up. You've got to stop looking at the bad in me and look at some of the good. I'm not perfect but I believe in God above everything else. That's a good quality. Pointing out your sins is the most loving thing I can do for you. I had a theological discussion about what you and I talked about the other night. I'm in the right. I'm the only moral compass your children have right now. Satan is working on you to take that away. Resist!!! You can do it.

No response of course. It's hard to argue with the Bible. She's probably scratching her head saying "What's theological?" It's amazing the power God gives you. I fear nothing as long as I'm doing His will. It's true - if God is for us who can be against us.

I talked to my preacher last night in church about her saying she would like to sit down with him so he can tell me I'm doing wrong and he said she does't want to hear what I have to say, but then he said this would be a good opportunity to bring her back to the church.

Good morning Eddie. Did your preacher advise you to call her out when given the opportunity? Sorry I check in from time to time because I don't have a computer at home and rely on the library so I dont know full details of the situation. Are you still going to Divorce Care?

@Simplicity17 My preacher said telling her she is sinning when I have the opportunity is the Christian thing to do but of course do it gently, with humility. I have felt good this week because of the way I'm handling this now. I feel like by using the Bible as my guide I have more control. Telling my kids they can't hang out with her boyfriend (because of the sin involved) is just like telling them not to hang out with any sinner. It's well within my rights as a Christian father. I do still attend Divorce Care but I missed the last two weeks because I had other appointments I couldn't get out of.

@eddie1975 Divorce Care really helped me and each week had a really strong message that helped me reflect in different ways. I about different context still as each different situation comes by. It really gives you guidance. I am actually thinking about attending another set of classes. Wish you the best, hope you have a good weekend as well. Giving it to God and praying for her is all that you can do really. Yes you can point out when given the opportunity however it is up to her to listen and be obedient.
