Hello, Everyone! I actually have some time to myself today. I started to say quiet time, but my dog, Emma, is barking continuously because she's kennelled. We are trying to breed her with my friend Heather's papered lab so that we can have puppies to sell right after Christmas. Emma hates being kooped up.
Not much out of the ordinary is happening these days. Just the same old stuff basically. Oh yeah, except this. We went to a birthday party for Heather's son, Jacob, on Saturday. We went early to take Emma, our dog, to meet their dog. Upon pulling into the driveway we saw their neighbor woman pointing her finger vigorously at Heather's husband, Lee. She was also gesturing with her other hand in which she was holding something. It was a stainless Steel 45 magnum. She was waving it around and telling Lee she was going to kill him, his children, and his dogs. She is a crazy woman. All this because their dog, Kodiak (the boy dog), got loose and ran two feet into her yard before Lee got him to heel. The neighbor went berserk. When we pulled in the driveway and saw what was going on, Art made the girls and I stay in the car. Lee just walked away from her and went into the house. She stayed where she was for a minute, walked away, stopped and stared at Art because he was watching her until she got in the house to see what she was going to do. The police were called, and low and behold, there is nothing they could do (so they say). She has the right to bear arms on her own property. (Yeah right-maybe true, but not like that). Her husband is a retired state trooper, and she's a federal security officer at the airport(Does this seem to speak louder than words to you). When Lee called yesterday to request a copy of the police report he was told there was no report, and not to call that particular officer back again. Does something sound fishy, or what. Needless to say, Lee, Heather, and the boys are somewhat afraid to go outside because of this crazy woman, who is getting off scott free after threatening their lives. I tell you this because God is working in my heart. I need to pray God's blessings on this deceived, selfish woman. If God blesses her with Himself, then it will rain down on her neighborhood. I have to admit that I'm finding praying for her (other than for God to "fix" her) somewhat difficult. And yet, it's what we are commanded to do. Please pray for Lee and Heather(and my attitude). They are having a harder time with this than I am because it was their lives that were threatened. I will ask you this question. In which circumstance would you feel safer? Knowing that you lived next to a registered sex offender, or next to an unstable federal officer? I don't want to live next to either, but I think I would feel somewhat safer with the sex offender. At least I would know to watch my back and be on my guard. This was totally unexpected, and frightening. Beware, folks. The devil is alive and well, and is using people's selfishness and wiles to trip us and make us stumble. Sorry if this seems depressing. I just needed to get it off my chest. Thanks for "listening". Pray for the District Attorney. He is supposed to be investigating the situation to see if he can find any foul play on the part of the troopers. Hopefully he'll be more just than the others.
Love to everyone,
