Hello Ladies that I love and care about so very, very much!
I just wanted to email you all this afternoon and ask you to do me a favor. A very close friend of mine Scindy Elsberry, who works with me was robbed last night. She is fine because they broke into her car while she was walking her dogs. However the police believe someone was watching her as she got out of her car and waited on her to walk away without her purse to go walking. Her brother and mother also met her at the park. (But she got out alone--scary.) Her brother's car was not touched. Of course they knew a man would not have a purse.
The police told her there were 10 break-ins just last week of ladies walking in the park and leaving their purses in the car. They believe it is drug addicts looking for quick money. However this is the newest phase of robberies. Walking is a popular exercise and ladies do not carry their purses on the walking trails with them. They lock them in the car. Easy way for robbers to make a quick dollar.
When we were at lunch today and told the waitress she said they have been robbing all over the city lately. In January they broke into people's cars while they were eating at Western Sizzlin. Drugs are very popular and ladies cannot be to careful.
TAKE YOUR PURSE WITH YOU.
HOLD ON TO IT.
IF YOU GO WALKING LEAVE IT AT HOME.
DON'T LOCK YOUR PURSE IN THE CAR AT THE MALL OR AT A PARK. IF YOU GO SOMEWHERE YOU DON'T WANT TO CARRY YOUR PURSE THEN LEAVE IT AT HOME BEFORE YOU LEAVE. CARRY A WAIST BAG.
I know some of you live in an entirely different state than me---it does not matter! Criminals are everywhere! And I care about you so please stop and think about what it would mean to you to loose your purse.
Scindy is a total wreck today! She needs you to pray for her. I have been with her most of the day. But it is going to take more than one day to fix this mess! And guess what? It's raining today and she has a broken window on her new car. But it's now at the shop---where the insurance will not pay to have it repaired.
I love you all!
Have a nice day and thanks for praying for the sweetest lady. She needs prayers.
Oh while you're praying I have had a mission of getting her to go to church with me in 2007. She has promised she will, but hasn't made it yet. Throw that one in the prayer also.
LOVE you all sooooo much!
Also, keep me in your prayers once again (I feel like I only have bad things to post lately--I'm sorry). I haven't had much time to post. I went in to have a tooth filled the other day, and 4 hours later I was finished with a route canal. So, I'm back to square one in saving for my June vacation with the girls in my family. But God always provides. I can't eat much right now, which is working fabulously for my weight loss (LOL--I'm taking my blessings where I can find them!). I'm struggling at work and seem to be out of favor with my boss's boss for doing what I was told to do--if that makes any sense. Just keep me in your prayers because I love my job. I give it 110% of me, and I strive every day to be a fair supervisor and do the right thing. I'm praying for justice against my adversaries. Daniel scolded me, telling me I needed to be praying for my enemies. Maybe so, but there is the reference in Luke 18:1-8--one of my favorite passages. I love the song by Acappella called "Keep Prayin' " on the Parables CD. And this is just all I'm able to pray right now--for justice against my adversaries. I'm also leaving on Sunday to get a new certification in Nashville. I will be away from my husband and my babies for a whole week. I've never done anything like this, and laugh if you will, but I am scared to death! And I don't want to be away from my family. But I'm going, so like I said, keep me in your prayers. If you read this far, I appreciate you taking the time to try and make sense of my ramblings. : )
Try to enjoy your time away..it will be a good experience for all of you....it will help you appreciate each other!
