What’s up with Lee?

by adustyframe ~ January 28th, 2009

Many of you have asked and here’s the answer.

1.He’s depressed and feels like giving up.

2. He still doesn’t have enough to eat. Actually county jails seem to be notorius for the not enough nutrition but we can’t do anything about it.

3. He spent the couple $ I sent him for canteen on phone cards so he can talk to me for a few minutes every other day or so. I think that’s sweet although I wish he’d use it to buy food.

4. His parole officer has started revocation proceedings. It seems to be (from what I can tell) a partial revocation.

She has chosen some programs she wants him to attend and they can only be attended as in inmate.

When the revocation proceeding is finalized, he’ll be transferred to a prison several hours away and begin them. Hopefully he’ll finish them up and be released some time this summer.

That’s all I know. I have no clue what will happen when he’s released in the summer.

It’s actually quite frustrating to me and to Lee because he was already at this facility where he’s transferring to. This facility is where he was when I wrote my Razor Wire & Flowers post.  At that time, he requested to attend the programs that his parole officer is sending him to  now and was denied.

Nothing about this entire time in our lives has made sense and I think I’ve about quit trying to figure it out.

God knows what’s best for us so I have to trust that he is in control and he knows that this is what we need. I have to just let go of trying to be in control, trying to make it make sense. My job is to trust and seek God for wisdom on decisions that have to be made.

Thank you for praying for us. You are very important to me and I am privileged to have you as friends and prayer partners.

    Praying for continued grace and strength for all of you. Don’t give up believing that good will come from all of this. God is still working, even when we can’t see it. He sees and knows thing we don’t.

    I am dealing with a difficult issue in my life, and these verses were an encouragement to me today. Psalm 9: 9,10

    Thank you!

    That is one of the hardest things about having a husband in jail, I have found… so many, many unknowns. And it’s so hard that you can’t just pick up the phone and call… for the first few days he was able to call me with an account I set up for him, but for some reason now, both our lines (home and cell) are blocked and he can’t call. I wonder if it is because I am a witness in their case. Oh, it is just killing me. I don’t know if any letters will get to him, or if they’ll even let me visit. Last time I talked to him, he was also so depressed… although he thought he would get out after today’s hearing so he was somewhat hopeful, but they put him back into jail. =(

    Hi Lizzie,
    How nice to have a visit from you at my homeschool blog. I’m so sorry that you’re having to go through so many trials. One thing I am grateful for, and that’s the fact that you and your husband will be reunited sometime this summer. What a joy to have that to look forward to. I’ll continue to pray for you and James as The Lord leads. Take care and let’s keep in touch. okay.
    Love to you and yours,
