It has been a very tense day. Jarod turned himself in and of course, was arrested and put in jail to await the bonds person to come and set his bond. We were told when we first called it would be 3pm and if not then, 6pm, then it turned into 8pm and then 8pm became 10pm. Soo, we've been sitting on pins and needles all day, praying, worrying, wondering if it would be anything we could do something about and on and on. It was a GOOD thing I got my daily bible reading and my prayers prayed before receiving the call, or I would have been a horrible mess!
Finally, it was set, a $500 full cash bond, meaning it has to be paid in full before he can be released, PLUS $55.00 in booking, bond and housing fees. Jarod had some money, $160.00 which means we had to come up with $395.00. We were able to borrow that from my mom, THANK GOD! Plus, I got a $50 American Express gift card that I can use for gas to get there and back, it is a little over a 2 hour drive just to get there.
So, pray that the $50 is enough in gas, and that there aren't anymore fees we aren't aware of.
Since his vehicle is uninsured, we wanted to put it on our insurance and drive it home tomorrow, but we don't have the gas money to get it home and as of right now, nobody to borrow it from. PLUS, we might even have to pay to get insurance on it, but was hoping we could put insurance on it, by just adding it to our policy long enough to get it home and be billed for it. We are figuring that his license will be suspended for a year due to this...
I don't think I mentioned this in my prayer request blog, but the main reason I was worried is because this was his 2nd offense with no insurance, he had gotten a fine about 6 months ago, here in this county where I live. On his arrest record online it did not say anything about a hit and run, just his 2nd offense with no insurance and that is a STEEP penalty here in KY. Thankfully, if he does not have to serve anymore time in jail, he can live in his dorm (which opens Thursday) and is within walking distance everywhere else he needs to go, work, classes, etc...
Anyway, we (hubby and I) plan on leaving in the morning so I had better get to bed soon. Hopefully I can sleep, have been wound all day!
Goals accomplished today:
1. Bible read
2. Prayers prayed
3. 4 cups water
4. 2 hours tutoring
I'm surprised I have the sense to even know what I accomplished today!
Goodnight and thanks for the continued prayers,
P.S. Cannot believe I have been so open about this on here, hope it does not come back to bite me.
