The Lord Giveth... The thief Taketh Away

Well, we weren't expecting this! Jeff was about to walk out the door for work this morning, when the doorbell rang. It was our apartment manager telling us that someone had broken into our jeep last night!















Jeff took pictures, the cops came, and you can't tell by this photo, but the perpetrator actually left behind some DNA! (Blood on the dashboard.) This whole scenario is funny for a few reasons:

1. As you can see, I was the last one to drive the car, so the seat is pulled forward. I'm sure it was an uncomfortable squeeze.

2. The thief probably would have gotten more money for the top-of-the line baby carrier, base and stroller in the back of the jeep than for that cd player he/she had to yank out of the dash.

3. They busted in the window, but if they had checked the handle, they would have realized we always leave the jeep unlocked! Ha!

Oh well. We were just comforted that they didn't steal the carrier and stroller - or the jeep itself. So, even when the enemy tries to steal from us, we are still blessed!

    Oh no! That's awful!! I will pray that there's no expense on your part and that God would do great things. Yes, I'm so happy that the thief didn't steal your baby goods.
