I never posted here before. I want to ask other people of faith how to deal with a deep seated resentment I feel toward my childrens grammie. I believe in Christ, but not in the church. This woman is an ex. Baptist Pastors Wife. She lives in this nice house, goes to many meetings, have dinners with her christian friends. She lives apretty good life. Her son abandoned us some time ago. I have went thru some serious issues with my health (CFS, possible FM, and PTSD, unable to work and applying for SSDI), and have had extremely difficulties financially (long story). She knows we have been without a dollar for 3 months. Thru this time and in the past- she have not ONCE asked me how I'm doing, asked if we needed anything- not ONCE! Even a child could figure there would be a need for basics like diapers, clothes, power, toilet paper (!). I am not the one to judge, but at the same time Matthew 25:31-46 comes to mind. We are not only poor per say, but we are supposedly family. I have noone here, my family is not in this country, my illness have devastated me in more than one way. I have most of my friends in another state. I am on my own, the only one near is her. I am not expecting her to support us at all, but a little compassion wouldn't hurt. A question if I am ill and need the children away from the house for a while. Bring a roll of toilet paper on the way over to the house, anything! All I see is this huge smile, and chit-chat talk. I am feeling more resentlful by the minute, and maybe I expect more from a Christian. Aren't we supposed to visit the poor and the widowed and fatherless, aren't we supposed to share a meal with them instead of our fancy church buddies? I can't talk about things with her, she bluntly ignores me. It's like she don't want to hear anything that is not jolly and funny. Anything that won't remind her that the world (and us with it) is imperfect. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, this is tearing on me. I can't keep playing the "happy game" with her with no debt or reality.
