Why is it that every time you get refreshed in your walk the evil one tries to ruin it for you? This past weekend was such a refreshment and we all needed to get away but the minute we pulled back into this city we dreaded being here. We are very much ready to leave from this area but for some reason the Lord has us here. So on Monday my husband gets to work and finds out that the allegations that were made on him by the friend I mentioned in one of my previous blogs was going to be investigated some more. This is so frustrating for us because a few weeks ago they told us the investigation was done with. Anyways this situation is not a good one and we fear that some serious consequences will be taken out on my husband because we feel like no one is giving him a fair shot. Why do people do things and not realize that it affects families not just one person? Then last night my husband comes home after his midterm around 10:45ish because he walks home from school and is very upset because our flowers are all gone. I said, "WHAT???" I ran outside to find two of my three stargazer lilies completely gone. We planted these flowers in May and we were finally seeing them bloom. They were so pretty. One of the flowers was completely torn out and all that was left behind was roots and the bulbs from the flower. The other flower was cut off like if someone just took scissors to the plant to cut off my flower. Later as I walked back home from being at the neighbors to find out if they saw anything I saw one of the bulbs that never bloomed lying in the street. Thankfully the one that I have left still haven't bloomed yet so I think that is why the person/s never messed with it but why would someone do that. Do they not realize how hard we have worked at taking care of our garden? We don't do these things so we can have someone come and ruin what we worked for. My heart breaks because I feel overwhelmed. I am at peace about my husband's situation but when I think about it too much I become worried and then the flowers just topped the cake. Please pray for me and my heart and that I remember to try to be hopeful in all situations. I keep praying over myself that good things happen to those who love and serve the Lord and that no weapon formed against us shall prosper but I just feel frustrated right now. Thank you for the prayers that everyone of you say for our family. Hope you are having a better day than I am.

If I could give you a hug I would! Definitely keeping you in our prayers, how frustrating and scary.

That's so trashy and mean that someone stole your flowers! Maybe they were drunk when they did it? Or maybe some bratty little kids. It sounds like you probably have a vindictive neighbor though...

I felt the same way when a drunk guy ripped off the sideview mirror and kicked our door on my silver car...after we had only had it for about 2 months.

I hate when people don't respect OTHER people's property.
