She Forgot Me And I Can Understand Why
January 14, 2017 11:47am CST
Many years ago while I was still in College before I married and was dating a guy, he and I became friends with a couple who had two kids. The husband went to the College. We went to a Bible College and that guy was pursuing an inner city missions career. My boyfriend (at the time) and I went over to their apartment twice I remember. They even let us borrow their car. One of those times when we went over to their apartment, we all sat and watched that movie "2010" It was the continuation of "2001 A Space Odyssey". So, then, my boyfriend and I broke up and I lost touch with them. I got married to my now present husband and I had always wondered what happened to that family and if they had done mission work in the inner city. Then around 1999 and 2000, my husband had a manager type position at the local Grocery Store. He mentioned how they had hired some new people and one of those people was the wife of that family I knew years ago. I was so surprised and sad to learn that her husband had left her , deserted her and her two boys not long after I had known them. I had seen her at the Grocery one day and when she realized I was one of the manager's wives, she said "hi , it is nice to meet you". She looked at me like she had never met me. So, I decided shortly thereafter, to remind her about me. So, one day I was in the store and we got to talking and I reminded her about me and my ex boyfriend and how we had known them and visited with them etc. She said, she didn't remember that time. She said to me not to be offended by that but she was so crushed and hurt by her husband deserting her like that, that after awhile, she felt like God allowed her to forget lots of those painful memories, to help her move on. So, I fully understood and I thought that was good how God had comforted her in that way.
