A Little Help, If you'd Be So Inclined...

This morning at 5 AM, I got a phone call from Mr. S! He is on his way to St. Thomas. We are not sure why exactly. He has court scheduled for January 7th, and usually they would transfer him the Tuesday before...so he's been transferred a week early.

My thoughts are (though I have not yet heard from the attorney) that maybe they bumped his court date up to tomorrow. My high hopes are that they have decided to dismiss Mr. S's case and they brought him to St. Thomas to tell him.

Would you mind saying a little prayer? I am focusing mine on softening the judge's heart to our plight, asking for help for our attorney (He knows that the lawyer needs it), to protect and comfort Mr. S, and if it be His will, that this case would be dismissed and we can move on to the next step. St. Thomas is a lot rougher than Puerto Rico because there is a lot more corruption. I worry continually while he is there....and he can not call me as often either, if at all. Boo.

So, if you wouldn't mind sending one up for us...We would really appreciate it! I will let you know what I find out! I am beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel...


**Edited to Add**
So I have not heard anything yet. I have not been able to talk to the lawyer just yet. I did call and talk to the secretary, and she said they may have just brought him over early with others because of the holidays. So I think we may just be waiting until January 7th as originally planned. *sigh* But I am just really grateful for a court date at all. Thanks so much for everyone's comments and prayers!!

So..to answer a couple of questions from your latest comments...

-Yes you should go to Five Guys. It's delicious. But sadly no they do not have shakes :(

- You are crazy if you think you miss the snow!!! I'm so sick of it!

-The cupcake stand is from Bed Bath and Beyond. Itn't it the cutest thing!?!?!

You and Mr. S are at the top of my list this morning - here's to hoping for good news! Stay strong.

I can't believe they would just take him somewhere and not tell him why. That should be his right! I will definitely pray for him and hope that he gets to come home to you very soon! I can't wait for the day that you get to post about him arriving safely to you! Good luck!

This must be agonizing for you, but hopefully the court date will stick. I finally got all caught up on the whole story...a little behind the times, I know. I'm sorry. I just can't even imagine. You are one tough chick, I have to say, and your hubby must be a rock. Really....I'll keep you guys (& the judge) in my prayers too.

So, not only am I still praying...he's praying now, too!

Remember, God is good to those who are faithful (like you!!)
