We have quite a few heavy things on our plate lately. I am a tish bit overwhelmed in general. However, the actual feeling of drowning in a sea of problems and situations comes and goes.
Most importantly, we have our health and each other...so we are fine. Andy is not going to lose his job... Praise Jesus! (this was one thing I was hesitant to post about for a few reasons...but God answers prayer whether I blog about it or not...whew!)
But today, I would like to fill you in on some much need prayer requests. I have mentioned before about the Captain's wrongful arrest and this absurd charge and court case hanging over our head. I have told you all the details I know, all the while laughing and making jokes...because that is who I am... and really, life is funny. But I feel I have done a slight disservice to Andy and our situation... because it is very serious.
There seems to be a video from the Pharmacy... our lawyer has yet to receive it. We have been praying specifically for a speedy delivery of the tape, as well as a clear picture. Also that the video provides a clear view of the "real bad guy" and without a doubt proves it is not Andy. We aer also praying that this will gets cleared up before it goes to trial (please Lord, make it so.) I am also not really sure where we are going to come up with cash to pay a lawyer and court fees, but I know God will provide....
Last week the Captain received some info from his lawyer. The Prosecution sent a plea bargain (really, if it was not so serious, I would be caught up in a fit of giggles...because, really?) It stated that is Andy was to plead guilty he would only get a year and a half sentence!!!! However, it would be capped at 90 days with the rest of it on parole... As I sat and read the words, I was stunned into silence (a huge rarity in and of itself.)
Of course, innocence does not cave, so we, that is to say, Andy, will not be accepting this so-called bargain.
I share all of this not so you can be outraged (although Righteous anger is acceptable) but to plead with you to be in prayer for my husband and this situation. We know firsthand how powerful prayer is.
I also wanted to ask another favor... If you have the time, please leave a comment of
encouragement or prayer for the Captain...Think how wonderful it would be if I could open the comments and show him dozens of people who care enough to lift him up in prayer! I know it would be a source of great strength and encouragement for him...and me. :)
