Breakthrough 2 down, 2 to go!

Recommended Posts

You guys wouldn't believe the miracles that have happened this week. It has been one of the hardest weeks of my life, but God is so faithful.

Monday morning - Court with husband over visitation

The judge saw us first, got fed up with trying to mediate us, so he sent us to mediation. In mediation, the mediator realized that there wasn't much she could do to help us at this point. BUT THEN she mentioned, "You guys could do the S.A.F.E. program." I jumped on it, because it's very affordable and it would assure my daughter's safety as well as keep my husband in line (by being closely watched). The mediator said, "OK," and went out to bring my husband in to go over the details. The mediator finished the paperwork and was going over it with us. When my husband heard the part where he'd only get to see her once a week for only two hours, he flipped out. He jumped up, screamed the "F" word, walked out, and threw the S.A.F.E. program packet with some force, almost hitting the mediator's clerk. He did this in front of the bailiff. I thought he was going to get arrested.

The mediator sent us back up to court to see the judge. The judge decided to go to lunch before he handled us (I think he was really fed up at that point), so we had to wait in the courthouse for an hour. I ran into a friend of mine who's other friend had a similar case going on. She was very comforting to me. When she left, I actually found an empty spot in the court house (which is nearly impossible inside of a public Los Angeles building) to be alone to pray and lay down on the bench (nobody could see me and I could hear footsteps if people were walking towards where I was). By that time I had a monstrous headache and my neck and shoulders were hurting. So, God gave me some rest before we saw the judge.

When we finally went in, the judge barely let me speak. It was like he completely saw through both of us and reamed my husband so badly as a result. The judge didn't even say one correctional statement to me, it was all about correcting my husband. The one thing the judge did let me speak about was how my husband had just said the "F" word and threw the packet the mediator had just given him. It doesn't end there though.....

The judge made a decision to "allow" my husband to see our daughter two days a week and to call only three times a week through the SAFE program. My husband left happy and was rubbing it in my face. As I was about to leave, I looked at the judge and he nodded at me in an agreement sort of way. It was kind of bizarre, but I nodded back. I wanted my husband to leave first, because I didn't want to deal with his mouth all the way out, so I sat down for a minute. I started thinking about the nod...then I remembered that the mediator said that the SAFE program is for only one day a week for two hours, there's not other option because it's government (or state) subsidized. I decided to go down to the mediator again to get the packet that she made us give her back when my husband refused the program for the first time. I told her that the judge ordered two days at two hours a piece for my husband. She said that that was impossible and the judge didn't understand the program, that my husband was only going to get two hours whether he liked it or not.

You guys.........the judge knew it! I KNOW HE KNEW IT, and that's why he nodded. He made that judgement to get my husband the heck out of the courtroom because he was acting like a jerk! The judge knew that the program was only for two hours a week, that's why he nodded at me! Can you believe that?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! God moved heaven and earth for me that day! He even moved a judge to play dumb you guys!!!!!!!!!!!! A JUDGE!

Thursday night - Court for my $800- ticket

-God sent me a person to tell me about alternate community service programs, to ask the judge for that. When the judge called my name, he read off my charge and asked me if I watched Oprah (cell phone campaign I guess). I said, "Not really." Then he asked me how I plead, I said "No Contest." He started reading off my fines. He started to hit me with a "failure to appear" fine on top of the $262- fine (which got drastically reduced from $800-!). I asked the judge to please dismiss the failure to appear. He asked, "why?" and I told him that my husband got arrested for abusing me only four days after I got the ticket and I forgot. He suspended that fine! All I owe is $262- and I can do community service at a food bank or pretty much anywhere I choose. I have until Cinco de Mayo! Praise God huh!

MIRACLES happen you guys................! I'm so happy. Thanks for all of your support and prayers! God bless you all!

OH yes....I'm doing the jig right now. The title should've actually been 2 down 5 to go, but guess what?!!!!!! I'm 4 out of 5 now. God provided the money yesterday for me to pay the back pay on my car....$500+ dollars, so it's not getting repossessed!!!!!! AND my husband's truck got impounded, he's not going to get it out, so he transferred his car insurance over to me (pretty nice for a guy who's been dragging me into court left and right)...all I have to give the insurance company is $25- this month to get my insurance going! The only thing I have left, before I'm completely legit, is to pay my $200- car registration, which expired 2 weeks ago. Praise God, I'm almost there.....almost back from INOP!!! It feels great! God is good and I love Him so much!
