Prayer for a legal matter...
« on: November 14, 2005, 03:52:41 PM »
I've got something going on, rather silly actually, that has snowballed into a rather large legal matter (just FWI, if you ever drive on a suspended license in VA, never tell the cop you know its suspended (yeah, really REALLY stupid of me)).  Also, the state of VA is rather nutso in its regulations, especially the county I happen to live in.  So, if you have a second, say a prayer for me, as this could cost me a pretty penny (a month's pay) and jail time (yikes, for a suspended license for an unpaid speeding ticket of all things!).  Got a continuance today, but will get the virdict one way or another Dec. 16th, & can't afford a lawyer.
Now where were we? Oh yeah - the important thing was I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn’t have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones...

And I thought I had the worst luck in the world...I backed up into an invisible pole thats was bent. Later I parked my car downtown and payed the 2 bucks but I still got a $30.00 parking ticket.

You have my prayers...I used to live in VA, and got my share of speeding tickets there as well.

Lord, have mercy.
Mor Ephrem is a nice guy.  Just say sorry and it will all be ok. Say I had things that were inside troubling me but I didn't know how to express appropriately. I will not behave that way again but I am seeking help.

thank you so much Mor ephrem you are a hero!

In my prayers.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.
