Are You Serious

So I started cramping a bit more and got excited thinking that this was going to happen but it seems that wasn't the plan. It was around 4oclock so we decided we would just go to church since nothing was happening. We ate and got ready. It was raining out and on the road to church a power line was down so a cop was out signaling traffic. We weren't sure what he was trying to get us to do so my husband slowed down but didn't stop and I rolled my window down and the cop yelled slow down which my husband thought he was being rude in his tone of voice so he laughed at him and keep going. (We all make mistakes and don't always portray ourselves in a Christian light, we are all guilty of it, sometimes we pay for that mistake and sometimes we don't. In this case I would later pay the price for that.) I had a feeling that the cop was going to follow us and turns out he did. He pulled us over and since the car is in my name it pulled up my record too. I had a traffic ticket that I had not paid yet so there was an warrant out for my arrest! Yes I know this sounds like something out of a movie but I assure you it is unfortunately all real. I was taken to his squad car and told to have a seat and wait for him to call it in. It took a few minutes then he informed me and my husband that my bail(which was the price of the ticket plus some fees) was 500 dollars and that I would be taken to the Winnabago county jail and booked then he could bond me out. I was a bit annoyed that my husband had to laugh and this had to happen. I just wanted to go to church now I was headed to jail. Are you serious? When it rains it pours I'm telling you. Then the cop tells me that he had to handcuff me since he is taking me to jail. So here I am this Christian girl who is going through a miscarriage just trying to go to church and then I'm a social deviant going to jail over a traffic ticket! (I know I should have just paid it but when you don't have the money that's not an option) As a previous prison guard in the Army I had been in handcuffs before but it was just when we were practicing now this was very different and uncomfortable. So here we go to the jail. I decided that if this was what was going to happen I know God works everything for good so I'm going to evangelized to this officer. So I did. It turns out that his family was Jewish and he was a Jew but not a practicing Jew. So I said well that's good so your not completely opposed to Jesus and he said no. We talked some more and I told him all Jesus had done for me and my family and thanks to Jesus doing a work in my husband, my husband lead me to the Lord. He sounded really interested in what I was saying so who knows. I did invite him to church for Easter so hopefully we will see him there. When we got to the jail I was taken in and booked. It was miserable all of this over a traffic ticket. You have got to kidding me. After being transferred to a different room I was booked and then had to wait for all the paperwork to go through to get bonded out. There was two other men in there. One was completely out of his mind. He walked by and told me he was in there for telling a girl he was going to kill her but he was just joking now she is going to be scared of him! Ok so this guy definitely had some mental issues to say the least and some demons to say the worst. I told God while I was sitting there if you really want me to witness to him I will but I'm going to be honest with you God I really don't want to he is really creepy. But to my luck and great appreciation he didn't he wanted me to witness to this other man that was in there. He was having a lot of trouble getting a hold of someone and needed someone to help loan him some money. I told him I couldn't do that, we were doing good to get me out but that I could pray with him if he would let me. He said sure I can use all the help I can get. So I prayed for him and then he was telling me a bit more about what was going on. He was telling me how tired he was of everything. I then asked him if I could tell him my story. He said sure. I told him what was going on with my baby and how I was in here. I asked him if he had a relationship with Jesus and he said he did. I told him that if he asked God for peace then he would give it to him, that He has given it to me through all this and people of the world look and don't understand because they don't have that peace. I told him that if it turned out that he had to stay in jail tonight that sometimes God uses situations like this to talk to us and to take the time and opportunity to be alone with the Lord and really seek Him. After that one of the officers came and got me to be released after two and a half hours. I was so glad and thankful, I'm telling you orange flip flops are not my style. My husband was waiting for me and was upset all this had happen. We then left and went home. What a night. After getting home we went to sleep then at 3:30 I woke up to use the bathroom then lay back down to realize I was having contractions. They were 2 minutes apart and lasted about 30 seconds. I decided to go take a bath around 4 to ease the pain and in case something happen. I stayed there for a while then went back to bed I guess my body wasn't ready. I woke up this morning at 7:45 having more painful contractions but still nothing. I believe today will be the day. I hope so.
