Like I said before, the church split defined our life, partly because my husband and I were on opposite sides when it came to convictions. It was a very difficult time, especially the first few years. This was written in August 1985.


By Sharon L. Bratcher


I’m trapped, not free

And can I be me?

Our resources tapped

Past contacts snapped

Music all changed

Life rearranged.

Neatly, like they.

What can I say?

I have no choice

So why raise my voice?

Sometimes I’m glad.

Today I am sad.

I am afraid

Of changes to be made.

I must consent,

He won’t relent.

Maybe that’s good –

Follow as I should.

Is it the truth- does he know?

I surely hope so.
