"thoughts about a subpoena"

Some of you might remember that back in December, my neighbor came to my door bloody from being beaten up by her husband and son.

Apparently, a jury trial is being held in June for the husband and I have been issued a subpoena to appear as a witness.

This is dredging up all the memories from that day and subsequent weeks and new thoughts are emerging. Many involve guilt and how much more I could have done, SHOULD have done and said at the time and in the aftermath.

I realized last night when I couldn’t sleep that I have a lot more guilt about this than I thought. If you think of it, prayer would be appreciated.

    We’re praying- praying with genuine understanding, as we have been exactly there. There is no condemnation, remember, but only redemptive conviction that turns us more towards Christ.

    So…I went digging but couldn’t find it. But I prayed something like that prayer you sent out to revo a few weeks ago when we were praying for someone remotely connected somehow to Shane?

    Anyways. Peace. :)
