So here it is before 5:00am and I can't Sleep! You would think I would be zonked after going to bed just 3 short hours ago, yet my mind won't shut off! I have always been one to not care what others think about me, say about, or say to me, BUT when it comes to speaking untruthful things about those I love, such as my Father and especially my Husband, I am not one to handle it well.
I don't know how my mom has done it all these years with people hating my father and slandering him and what he stands for.
I got a taste of this last night after Brandon brought home this horrible letter that a man from our local fire department put together totally hammering Brandon. It was FULL of LIES and untruthful statements that accused Brandon of things he has NEVER done!! He also got told by another lady, after trying to defend himself, "Why don't you just get the hell out of here you idiot!"...yeah lovely adult like citizen from Heber/Overgaard isn't she?!!!
So, I have spent most of the night thinking, tossing, turning, and fighting feelings of hate, anger, sadness for my husband, then feelings of gratitude when I realized that ANY person in ALL of history that has ever taken a stand for things that are righteous has gotten ridiculed, persecuted, and was hated!! So I guess it comes with the territory and I should be grateful for having a husband that wants to get invovled and will NOT waver from that which he knows is right!!
The hard part for me is learning where to place these feelings and how to get through it!
