5 years ago today, about this hour, I found my wife wanted to exit my life. In the last 5 years, she has not had a serious conversation with me and it hurts deeply. However, my love for her has only grown, and I will continue to do what I can to restore that wonderful gift the Lord gave us both.
I am composing an email to send to all those in the “Naming Names” video in an effort to reconcile one or more relationships. It was my intent to send it today, but work issues have distracted me. But since it is the anniversary, I thought it would be good to bring you up to date.
I expressed my intent in the ‘Gal 2:14 “before them all”’ video (http://family.kozlowski.org/2017-06-24). Today’s video is attached and also at http://family.kozlowski.org/2017-07-12. For reference the “Naming Names” video is at http://family.kozlowski.org/2017-02-25.
You might find informative a recent discussion on “Preparing our kids to contend” (http://family.kozlowski.b:280/2017-06-29+2), “Holding Jobs” (http://family.kozlowski.b:280/2017-07-02+1), and “Isaac - My Encouragement” (http://family.kozlowski.b:280/2017-07-04+2) that I would like to share with all my sons.
My study of how contention defines love, and recently clarity on Gal 2:14 and 1Tim 5:20, plus the obvious love for my wife and kids, implores me to press on with renewed vigor and direction in another attempt to restore all or part of my family. To follow Christ, to love, there is no other option.
Please join me in this effort.
