Hey all,

Well, I've recently gotten back from a men's retreat in the mountains of North Carolina. Our guest speaker was Gordon MacDonald. Not sure if anyone know's of him, but man, what a fabulous speaker he is. The gist of the three days was establishing intimate relationships with other men, your kids and your wife. It really made me think. I was able to let go of all of the anger I felt for my wife and prayed for God's guidance. Well, suffice it to say, I asked my wife if she would consider getting back together. It really took her by surprise but we were able to talk a little. There were things said that made me step back a little and the following day I wasn't sure that I made the right decision. Back to prayer. When we met again, I knew I did the right thing. We've been through a lot this past year and I believe that the time for healing is now. I'm really encouraged that we'll be able to work through all this and we actually hugged which really impacted our oldest boy. He's three and having a difficult time with our separation. He just doesn't understand.

Sorry this was so long winded, but just wanted you guys to know. My prayers are with all of you.
