I’m glad it worked out for you. I think three months is about what it took for things to heal for us, too. I agree with you about the guilt. It hurt to see him hurt. Even now that guilt returns and tries to condemn me from time to time, but then I remember God has forgiven me and so has my husband.

God used this to humble me. I used to think I could never do something like that. Now “How could he or she do that?” doesn’t come out of my mouth. I know myself a lot better now and realize that apart from the grace of God, if put in the right circumstances, any of us could do unthinkable things. Even me. This event stripped me of my pride and threw me completely on God’s grace.
