I hate titles...

So let's see... it's been 4 days since they have stopped talking to Paul. I have talked to my sister in law in an email or two and on chat program once. The conversations haven't been very long or deep and I am beginning to wonder where I stand in all of this. How am I supposed to be treated by other Witnesses, I am married (in their eyes) to an apostate but I haven't been baptized a Witness. So do I get shunned as well? Moo I hate this.

Every time I get to thinking about this, I say a little prayer in hope that the Holy Spirit will move and bring the words of God to a better understanding.

So lost...

Sunday night my sister went into the hospital because she was bleeding a lot (she was pregnant). She ended up losing the baby (Kloe or Jakob), so we are all having to deal with this loss. My sister is doing good now physically, they were able to do a D&C to help with the bleeding, they didn't find the baby though in the uterus, she must have lost the baby before getting to the hospital/ER. She was 13 weeks pregnant.

These past few days have been hard, I haven't gone one day without crying and now I have two things to be sad about. Might be a hard few weeks coming up.

Aw, Cassie...
((hugs))

I'm sorry you're having such a rough time. Does your church out there have midweek services you could go to? Sitting in the back, able to cry as much as you need to, might be a good thing.

Plus more HUGS.

Not this week because of a Pastor's conference. Actually normally it's not a service but more of a bible study thing, which is also good since you get the word of God. Was going to go to that this week but then found out things were canceled.

Thanks for the internet hugs. :) I did get teary eyed at church this past Sunday, that was before my sister's baby was lost, so now I don't know what I'll do... probably just cry.

I'm so sorry to read about the loss of your niece or nephew. May God grant all of you His peace that passes all human understanding. I'll also pray for the spiritual well-being of Paul's family and for healing in relationships.

God bless and keep you!

Thanks Sara for the prayers. Hopefully with time things will become better.

Cassie,

I am sorry to hear about your sister's baby. I pray that God will bring comfort to all of you during this difficult time. I am saddened to hear about Paul's family....perhaps, over time, they will bring him back into the fold and the Holy Spirit can work in their hearts as He did with Paul. We don't know God's timing in these things and we don't know the end of the story, here on earth. Big hugs!

Thanks Laura! I appreciate your prayers. It is definitely a difficult time with both situations. My sister and I have been trying to keep each other comforted through both hardships. It is good that we have had time to talk and help each other out. I think with time it will bring us closer together.
Thanks for the hugs and prayers.
