Although Janet was completely ignoring my calls at the time, I prayed and made every attempt to get Janet to reconsider saving her marriage. My last effort ended with me confronting Janet in her office at the bistro. While she was poised and pleasant on her way back to the office, I hadn’t closed the door before Janet released her vehement slurs of insults and her opinions of my so called “perfect life.” My recalling of the Word further fueled Janet’s wrath. She walked to her office door and said, “Karen, when you realize what secrets plague your holy matrimony, then come talk to me about forgiveness and until then GET OUT!”
I realized there was no reasoning with Janet. Since that time, she is cordial when I come to the restaurant, but there is no conversation. There is obviously less tension between her and Marlinda, but Janet still keeps her distance. I miss my friend and I miss our times together.
As surprised as I was with Janet’s reaction, I think Darius’ reaction surprised me even more. I chalked it all up to him not wanting to deal with his feelings, but Janet’s statement often haunts me. “Karen, when you realize what secrets plague your holy matrimony, then come talk to me about forgiveness…What was she talking about?”
