Give me your opinion girls...I think my mom just needs to let go!
Hey girls! I want to share an email with you that my mom wrote me. But let me give you some background first. I was brought up in a strict Christian home and went to a private Christian school (where my mom taught). For example, I wasn't allowed to go to PG-13 movies til i was like 18, and even then I had to tell her why it was rated PG-13, etc. When I went to birthday parties I wasn't allowed to go if there was dancing, and if i did happen to go to a birthday party with dancing, i was forbidden to dance, and if i did (which i usually did) I got punished (grounded or whatever). Also, I wasn't allowed to ride in a car with a boy by myself til I was like 18, and I wasn't allowed to date til I was 16 (which is fine, whatever). There are other things, but I won't bore you with the details.
Anyway, in May, I moved out of my parent's house and into an apartment with my fiance, Steve. My parents really haven't accepted him since we started dating, for reasons that are not even relevant. So needless to say, they are absolutely furious that we are living together when we aren't married.
Anyway, I give them a check every month for $200 to pay for my car and health insurance. And this is the email that I got after I sent the last check....
We did receive your insurance check today. It really grieves us to see both of your names on the check, as if you were living a respectful and moral life. Please do not give us any more checks like that. Just like when you said, "We got a new bed!" all happy and proud. That was such a slap in our faces and especially in God's face. We may not have been good parents to you, but your Heavenly Father has never treated you badly, and He does NOT deserve to be treated this way. You are so casual and flippant about your sin. How can you sleep at night, knowing you are committing fornication and everything about your life is shameful?
Please make other plans for insurance, beginning in September. If you should repent of your sins and get right with God before then, of course then we will keep you on the plan. I pray daily for you to see what you are doing with your life and turn to God. He will forgive everything and we will, too. We love you so much.
Please give me your opinions on this girls. Have any of you ever experienced anything like this? (I know Tiffany has already given me her advice, but since this is a Ladies Lounge and we like girl talk, I thought I'd ask you girls what you thought).
Oh and btw, I am very happy with Steve, and I am not doing anything out of the ordinary with my life. I go to work, come home after work, play with our kitties, watch tv and go to bed. I don't go out partying or do drugs or anything like that!.....lol....just thought I'd let you guys know! :-)
