My Lent 2019 Book List Plans

Is this the year you really want to dive into Lent? Do you want to come out of this Lenten Season and truly feel that you've had a small share of living in the desert with Christ for 40 days? I know that I do. Maybe it's an upcoming birthday that's making me have more of a now-or-never type of attitude towards Lent. Or maybe I just acutely feel the necessity of truly modeling this for my children, and living it with my husband. Whatever it is, these are the books and resources I'm going to use this Lent to really LIVE the season from Ash Wednesday all the way through to Easter Vigil. Look them over. If something looks helpful to you, use it. If it inspires you, go with it. I hope all of these bless and encourage you.

Divorce -middle aged man style?

Is it just me, or are guys getting dirtier in the way they abandon their wives? I've heard of several things from different couples that make me wonder what's up with that.

The first couple was strongly devoutly Catholic. I mean you drive by the yard and you really knew a Catholic family lives there from all of the statues, shrines, bikes in the driveway etc. A few months ago the man in the family told his wife he was sick of the entire thing and was going to divorce her. But before he ever filed any paper work he started rationing this SAHM's money so she had to beg for gas money or even a few bucks to get feminine hygiene supplies.

Another husband wanted to end their vacation NOW and ordered his wife and kids into the car. The wife protested (she wanted to do the laundry and pack up their stuff first). He physically dragged her to the car, drove home, and then filed for divorce.

Another husband informs his wife he is leaving her, but he has to stay in their marital home for a few more weeks until his new place is ready, just before the holidays. Nice timing huh?

There are plenty of other such stories up on divorce sites including Bai Macfarlane's Yahoo Group here.

What motivates a religious man in particular to abandon the wife of his youth?

Malachi 2:13-16, “Another thing you do: You flood the Lord’s altar with tears. You weep and wail because he no longer pays attention to your offering or accepts them with pleasure from your hands. You ask, “Why?” It is because the Lord is acting as the witness between you and the wife of your youth, because you have broken faith with her, though she is your partner, the wife of your marriage covenant. Has not the Lord made them one? In flesh and Spirit they are his. And why one? Because he was seeking godly offspring. So guard yourself in your spirit, and do not break faith with the wife of your youth.”
