joy from the ashes...


Nearly a year ago someone did this to my truck.  We woke up at 1 am to the sound of a horn blasting & my stepson's truck burning in the street.  After investigating we found our truck ablaze just 3 feet away from our garage door.  This all happened during the stormy divorce of my stepson.  We have suspected as to whom did this.  After gathering evidence  and nearly a year the police have closed our case.  They say they cannot prove anything against anyone.  

I am disappointed but not surprised...this felony arson happened just a few weeks after our robbery, and a few other crimes in our neighborhood, after this fire all the crime stopped...the police in my town are not used to such crimes...as a matter of fact about 10 of them stood mouths gaping at our fire.

I am left with trusting God as always He makes all things right...plus who every did this and they are close to us, they will have to live with this for the rest of their lives...we have moved on...what we value ... family and our love for them  is still very very much alive...

I think your attitude about it is a good one, even though it would have been good to know who caused the damage and have them be responsible for damages.

A ideas of being truly protected from anything is an illusion, but it does hurt more when something like this is visited upon you by someone you have a connection to & a love for. What a terrible shame~but you are handling it the best way possible. ~Mary

So sorry I haven't been journaling much this year but nice to stop in and catch up with you. I am sad to hear about the damages to your truck but you are right, God knows all, sees all.
