How would they make it?

Wednesday, May 21st, 2008

Over this last week, I’ve been wondering how in the world someone recently released from prison makes it? Here is what he got upon his release– *A cardboard box to put his stuff in *A list of phone numbers of agencies to call. When he got to the new facility he got– *$30 to spend […]

Please pray

Tuesday, May 20th, 2008

We mailed our appeal to the parole officer. We are asking her to review the rule disallowing James and Lee to visit. Please pray that she will consider the facts and change her mind! If she doesn’t agree, we can appeal to her supervisor, the regional manger, and on up the line ultimately to a […]

I need to add

Tuesday, May 20th, 2008

When I posted the previous post, I waited until I wasn’t so upset. But I am not sure I did a good job of saying that I do not believe the teacher had any malicious intent. I actually love her and do not harbor any ill feelings. It just hurt and it reminded me that […]

We’re still healing

Tuesday, May 20th, 2008

I’m sure that we will be healing for a long while. On Sunday something happened that reminded me that everything is still so fresh. I picked up my son from his Sunday School class. He ran out and grabbed me and ripped some sort of paper object to shreds. When I found out what happened, […]

Overwhelmed

Sunday, May 18th, 2008

My husband is overwhelmed.  He said he feels like he’s in a fog. He tried to explain it to me and I tried to understand but I don’t really. He said that for all this time he’s been told when to stand, when to sit, when to eat, when to sleep. Prison is it’s own […]

My traffic is high this week!

Saturday, May 17th, 2008

I wonder why? Are you all checking on me? (insert a smile here) Thank you for your kind comments and support. You are a great encouragement to me! Yesterday Lee and I had to practice our communication skills. We both had different expectations for the day and had a few tense moments. It was mostly […]

Works of God Weekend

Friday, May 16th, 2008

  Well, my Work of God this week is rather obvious! What has God done in your life lately?   As always, if you don’t have a blog, leave your blessing here in a comment. If you have a blog it can be anything you’ve written in the past month.  

Weird

Thursday, May 15th, 2008

It is soooo weird being a wife again. I know that I have been one all along, but I’ve really felt like a single girl. No one to answer to, no one to call if I’m out late–that sort of stuff. I’m still single parenting. It will be quite awhile before our family is back […]

A prayer request

Wednesday, May 14th, 2008

Many of you have asked about James and Lee’s reunion. I alluded to some hard things in the past week or so. This is one of the hard things. We were unprepared to discover that James and Lee are not allowed to see each other right now. That was not what the parole officer told […]

I am still processing

Tuesday, May 13th, 2008

This was quite a day! I’m still processing everything and trying to decide how I feel. I met his parole officer. My impression was that she isn’t “nasty” and may be easier to work with as long as Lee is towing the line. She at least took time to listen to my concerns and asked […]
