Comment on We want YOUR advice by Judith Boggs http://www.ruthblog.org/2013/09/16/we-want-your-advice/#comment-42656 Tue, 17 Sep 2013 03:17:30 +0000 http://www.ruthblog.org/?p=14392#comment-42656 My husband has been through rounds of depression… and I have experienced this once also.

Go to Mass together! read spiritual texts together. Serve God together! Our laughing motto has ALWAYS been …. “Divorce, NEVER, Murder
, maybe!” LOL. GOD’S GRACE IS SO SUSTAINING !
