Please remember me (Michael) and my wife (Miranda) in your prayers as we deal with a rather noisy neighbor who refuses to, and I quote, "change [her] behavior for anyone."  She denies ever making any noise contrary to the complaints of every single one of her neighbors.  It's reached a point where my wife is getting ill because of the lost sleep and stress.

Were I ten years younger, I would have probably already had the police called against me for being threatening.  I don't want to regress.     I've kept it cool this long and would like to remain doing so, but I think I'll need some divine help the longer this keeps up.

Thank you.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

My friend, I understand your plight as we have exactly the same problem here (only somewhat abated by sub-freezing temps keeping the offenders indoors, until spring).

yes, but it's apparently nearly impossible to evict due to noise complaints that don't go through the police.  however, the cops have been called a number of times (not by me, yet, but by other neighbors) and most everytime they finally get there, she's quiet again.  it's up to the cops' discretion to issue a violation, so if they don't hear anything, they usually don't.

I know EXACTLY what you are going through. If this philistine attacks you, let her or YOU'LL be going to jail. My the Lord grant you both the serenity and strength to endure.

Lord, have mercy. Dear Jesus, please help your servants Michael and Miranda.

It would be really good if one day the police will arrive at that point of time when the problem will look evident.
