I RSVP’d to the wedding

Monday, April 30th, 2007

James and I are getting excited about our family coming in for my brother’s wedding. We will (mostly) all be together for the first time in 2 years. James and I will finally meet my nearly 2 year old niece. James has lots of plans for our 2 weeks of family time. I am glad. […]

You don’t deserve this!

Monday, April 30th, 2007

My Mom cried on the phone with me a few weeks ago. Her tears were mostly about my brother in laws cruel comments. She said, “You don’t deserve him talking to you like that. You don’t deserve Lee being in jail.” Mommies never want their babies to hurt! She said, “When I was pregnant with […]

Speaking of changes

Friday, April 27th, 2007

Lee didn’t learn to read very well in school. He has always hated reading. During his incarceration, he has read a lot. He told me last night, that he checked out a book on classic literature. He’s going to go through it to see what book he wants to read. This is also a major […]

Sergio was moved into  a cell. All new inmates are in a pod of 100 guys and they transfer out as beds become available. Lee spent a lot of time with him but he says it’s no big deal. He’s just praying that Sergio would come to church even if it’s just to see Lee. […]

I got to visit tonight

Thursday, April 26th, 2007

I called the prison this afternoon to find out if visiting was going to be possible tonight. It was. I got there as soon as visiting hours started. Several of the wives I saw this morning were there. One came from 6 hours away. I felt so sad for her! Apparently the power was back […]

To go to this marriage seminar, I had to schedule child care for the day, as well as employees for the whole day. I went out to the prison quite excited. After all, an entire day with my husband is not something to take lightly. While we were in line, one wife said, “We even […]

A little boy

Wednesday, April 25th, 2007

Tonight in the nursery, some ladies and I were talking. One lady spoke about an awfully naughty boy in her son’s class. Apparently the teacher isn’t addressing the situation. I wasn’t sympathetic to his “naughty boy” until she looked at me and said, “His dad’s in prison. No offense but….” Oh! My heart twisted and […]

Marriage Seminar

Wednesday, April 25th, 2007

Tomorrow’s the big day! I get to be with Lee for the seminar all day tomorrow. I don’t know who’s doing it or if it will even be good. I don’t care! I’m just going to enjoy being with him all day. I pray that it will be a profitable time too. I shared this […]

Christian Radio

Tuesday, April 24th, 2007

I almost always listen to Christian radio. There are 2 decent stations in our area and I go back and forth between them. It’s such a blessing to hear excellent Biblical teaching throughout the day. My soul is always blessed and refreshed by the music as well. I was recently able to order Lee a […]
