Rumors are rumors. Trickle down gossip is infectious these days.
My husband’s father called him today to ask if he and I were still married. What? The small town we use to live in where his father still resides somehow got wind of a divorce between me and Mark. …only we knew nothing about this.
As far as we both know we are still married. If we got divorced they never told us about it! I hate it when I am always the last to know the latest slandering secrets! HaHa!
Whoever decided we were no longer together must be desperate for some juicy chatter or scandalous blather.
Small towns are noted for their back fence talk. Forget keeping anything quiet; everybody knows everybody else and their business. Only pieces of information get lost in translations along the way.
In this country more dirty laundry is being hung out to dry. Exposing of detailed scandals line the daily news as journalists squeak out any chunk of hearsay they can dig up.
Distressing as it all may sound, it may be rumor or it may be the truth. The times we live in bring about the worst in some circles. The very thought of certain individuals inappropriate liaisons splashed across the screens of millions of viewers has become the norm.
After this election, it is hard to believe anything anyone says. We have become a nation of lies and deception so deep we will need more than a “Gossip Recovery” to heal our brokenness. We need an outpouring of the Holy Spirit to cleanse the wounds and change our verbal exchanges to unify instead of divide.
The effort necessary is to remove the “veil” covering the eyes of many who are “gullible” to the sly and unscrupulous movements of the enemy.
2 Corinthians 3: 15-18 “Even to this day when Moses is read, a veil covers their hearts. But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.”
As we grow with Christ, the veil may be removed one shade at a time. God uncovers the truth the more we spend time with him. Stubbornness will limit what you see or what your heart understands. The process is dependent on your humility before the throne of God. Believe me; it is worth it to fall at his feet for any reason.
Maybe the rumor about Mark and me will make the front page news.
It would be nice before they make such an announcement to notify us first of our impending divorce! LOL!
