I Love Police Officers

We are moving this Saturday across the country!!

With a big move comes a lot of expenses!!

Abe got a pricey traffic ticket recently to top it off.  (My husband wears my sunglasses at times- don't laugh. :-) )

This morning he went to court to contest the ticket.

We said a lot of prayers that he would not have to pay it because we needed every penny we had!!  We also rehearsed how to best explain the situation to the judge, and Abe showed up in a suit and tie to present himself properly.

While he was in court, I anxiously awaited Abe's phone call to find out the results.

I answered the phone, and Abe shouted, "I love police officers!!"  He then began singing his favorite police song, "Bad Boys" from the TV show "Cops."

Apparently, Abe didn't have to say hardly a thing.  The police officer actually defended Abe by explaining why he really shouldn't be charged the fine he himself had given him!

By law, the police officer had to write Abe that particular ticket.  By kindness, the police officer chose to help us out.  I know we won't get out of a traffic ticket every time we pray about it, but I can't tell you how much we needed that miracle this week.  The fact that the police officer was the one defending him leads me to believe the Spirit must have touched this good man's heart.

I've said it before; I'll say it again:  "Believe in the Goodness of Humanity!"

I thank God for this miracle today.
