On another note, my son Jarod (20) desperately needs prayer. He has made alot of foolish decisions in the past year and just a few months ago moved a couple of hours away. He seemed to be doing pretty good, working, getting enrolled back in college, etc... Only one problem, he did not have insurance on his vehicle (we cannot afford to pay his too). So, he backed into someone and drove off and it was on camera. I KNOW foolish move there, but he did contact the police after they contacted us and talked to them and they were supposed to serve him papers the Tuesday after Christmas and said he would probably have to go to court maybe even spend time in jail. He had not heard anything, so he called to find out when his court date was and found out there was a warrant for his arrest. He went to work, talked to his boss and was told that if he missed ONE day of work because he was in jail, he would be fired. So, he's trying to get a couple days off, so that he can turn himself in and HOPEFULLY be able to get out on bail (which he would have to pay himself - because we don't have the money).
Here's the thing... He has been sleeping in his truck, had a place to stay here and there since he's been there, but always ends up back in his truck, so he may lose his truck and he may lose his license (small price to pay I know), but if he has to spend very much time in jail, it may mess up his enrollment in college. I mean, he finally has everything in order for college, he is just waiting to be assigned housing, and then for it to open up so he can move in. As hard as it was for him to get everything together, if he misses this semester, he may not bother trying to go back again.
I want him to make better choices, etc... but this mama's heart ACHES with the thought of her baby being jail for even one day and the thoughts that he might not get back in school after all.
So, while I know what he did was wrong and he needs to pay some consequences in order to learn from it, please pray with me that they will be lenient while being firm. I DO think there is such a thing as that. I'm having a hard time leaving this with God, so please utter a prayer for me as well.
Thanks everyone, best get busy on those goals...
